THE THESAURUS AND TAXONOMY TOOLS

"Thesauri" or "controlled vocabularies", for so many years the domain of librarians and indexers, are now also very important tools in the growing world of metadata. More and more organisations are looking for ways of gaining control over the subject metatags assigned to their documents, intranet pages, web pages and resources used for communications and knowledge management. Designing a well-thought-out taxonomy is a vital step in enabling consistent, meaningful metatagging throughout your organisation.

MultiTES Pro , thesaurus construction and management software, makes it easy to create, browse, print and maintain different types of taxonomies and thesauri on a standalone PC or a network. The MultiTES Web Deployment Kit is an add-on product to MultiTes Pro, consisting of a set of tools that enable publishing of a live MultiTes Pro thesaurus on a standard web server, allowing users with any HTML browser to perform dynamic queries.

Adding metadata to unstructured content makes that content considerably more useful. It increases the chances of the relevant content being retrieved by people who are conducting a search or browsing a site. It is also likely to lead to increases in productivity as people spend less time searching and more time locating the content that they need to do their jobs.

Used for many years in the information management community, MultiTes Pro is a popular and trusted thesaurus construction and management software that makes it easy to create, browse, print and maintain different types of taxonomies and thesauri on a standalone PC or a network. MultiTes Pro is inexpensive and very easy to use.
