Web programming tools that can import text files, email messages, databases, word processing documents, and make them available as a searchable database on the Internet.
A publishing tool for corporate intranets & the Internet
askSam Web Publisher is a product designed to let you create and publish
documents and databases on the Internet. Manuals, catalogs, price lists,
databases, research notes, marketing materials... whatever you want to
publish the askSam Web Publisher is the perfect tool.
Publish Documents and Databases on an Intranet
The askSam Web Publisher has been designed to quickly publish large
amounts of information on an intranet or the Internet. Simply import
existing files or type information into askSam - no HTML codes and no
programming. It's like using a word processor. Any computer user can
create and edit documents for the Internet.
Exciting New Way to Publish Information on an Intranet
Most Web publishing tools assist either in converting files to HTML, or
in creating HTML files. The askSam Web Publisher takes a different
approach. askSam lets you import existing files or enter information
using our WYSIWYG word processor. Your information is stored in an
askSam database. It is not converted to HTML. You place the
"live" askSam database on your Web server. The askSam Web
Publisher automatically converts necessary documents to HTML as users
access them. Because documents are stored in an askSam database, you can
easily add to and update them. This dramatically reduces the cost of
maintaining your Web site.
Instantly find what you need
Whether you publish a technical manual, helpdesk queries, or a corporate
directory - the ability to search your information is vital. The askSam
Web Publisher gives you access to the powerful askSam search engine.
Users can access a wide variety of searches including full-text
searches, Boolean searches, proximity searches, date searches, numeric
searches, wildcard searches, and fuzzy searches. The Web Publisher lets
you define custom search forms for a specific database, or you can
define a form to search your entire Web site.
Save user feedback into a database
Take information entered on your Web site and save it directly into an
askSam database... it's easy. The askSam Web Publisher can automatically
save the contents of an HTML form into a searchable askSam database. You
can use askSam to query, edit, evaluate, and create reports from this
data. This is a great way to collect user registrations, job
applications, suggestions, customer feedback and other kinds of
information. Make the information you collect even more valuable by
saving it into an askSam database.
The Low Cost, Low Maintenance Web Site
Everyone wants to have complete, up-to-date information on their Web
site. But maintaining a Web site is expensive. askSam lets any user
create and edit content for your intranet site. Your Webmaster will no
longer have to edit and reformat documents before they are placed on the
server. This saves time and reduces the costs associated with
maintaining a Web site.
Works with all popular Windows Web servers
Rather than creating our own Web server, we designed the Web Publisher
to run with popular Windows Web servers. This allows you to choose the
Web server software that best meets your needs and still enjoy the
advantages of the askSam Web Publisher. The Web Publisher is a CGI
(Common Gateway Interface) application that runs on Intel-based Windows
2000, NT, 95 and 98 Web servers.
