Ah, summertime! Hot days, good fishing and, well…

It’s the middle of summer a few years back at this fishing-equipment factory — and the heat is on this software developer pilot fish’s team.

“One day, every PC in the building rebooted and all unsaved work was lost,” fish says. “We received many complaints from users asking what was wrong with our software.

“We developers knew it wasn’t our software, but were clueless as to the cause. The network techs felt the same way about their network and its configuration.”

Maybe it’s just some intermittent glitch, fish figures.

Then, the next day, it happens again. All the PCs reboot, and more complaints flow in.

And the day after that, it happens once more. That’s when factory management steps up the heat on the IT guys, informing them that this problem that’s nobody’s fault will be identified and resolved.

Integrated into Microsoft Internet Explorer® for Windows®, netXtract delivers a breakthrough approach to document navigation and relevance determination. netXtract automatically indexes each document displayed by IE, extracts all contexts for any key term you choose and allows you to “jump” directly to the context you find most interesting. netXtract also allows you to define custom filters, or “dictionaries” of related terms by area of study, interest or business focus (e.g. medical, legal, financial, business intelligence, etc.). Build your own personal knowledge base Once you’ve found relevant information, you decide exactly what to save for future reference. netXtract allows you to build a local personal Knowledge Base of any text you select from documents displayed in Internet Explorer. You can also save to your Knowledge Base from any other application (MS Word, email client, etc.). netXtract’s Knowledge Base (KB) Manager allows you to categorize, maintain and query your Knowledge Base. Selecting any entry saved from a web document returns you directly to that point in the original online document.
