In the Document Imaging module of the Forefront™ Construction Suite, a user can find documents instantly using a Google-like search capability. Users can locate individual documents in their entire Forefront file system by entering any word or group of words. Forefront finds those words and lists each document that contains them, displayed by relevancy, and provides a link to open each one. The user can search by any word or combination of words contained in the documents. Advanced search options, such as “look for the exact phrase” and “exclude document with the words,” are also available. The search encompasses TIF images, PDF files, Microsoft Office documents, and other formats. According to the manufacturer, it gives management, operations, and the financial department the fast access they need to AP invoices, change orders, payroll timecards, contracts, and other documents.
