 What is an Infobase? 

An infobase is a single-file electronic repository for large volumes of dynamic reference information. Infobases are perfectly suited to handle the large amount of information that, for example, insurance carriers utilize each day.


Using Folio infobases, workgroups can access and adapt information in ways that make it more valuable to them. Corporations, workgroups and individual users all benefit from Folio's unique ability to index and retrieve information rapidly, store and display multimedia objects, link information together, update information on-the-fly and present a variety of contexts in which to view large collecttions of electronic reference information.


The Most Current Information…Instantly


Folio infobases guarantee instant access to the most current information available. To begin with, every word in an infobase is indexed so that no stop words exist in the infobase. Users can type in a word, a phrase, or a query, based on Boolean operators, and watch the Query Map display the results of the search in real time. Users can expand or narrow an infobase query on-the-fly. With the click of the mouse, users can navigate through the sections of an infobase that contains the information that they need.


The Folio Views search engine supports standard Boolean search operators, phrase searching, proximity searching and word stemming to include word variations and synonyms in searches.



Powerfully Simple End-user Software


Infobases allow information professionals to continue to use familiar tools and concepts associated with paper-based research like grouping, annotating, and organizing personal views of relevant information.


Folio infobase files work the way that information professionals work, allowing individuals to search, tag, and group together information and uses electronic version bookmarks, highlighters, and sticky notes.


Information analysis is simplified through the use of searchable fields, user-defined hypertext links, and the ability to quickly move new information into a multitude of formats.



Infobases Integrate Seamlessly


Infobases are also workgroup and workflow-enabled. Infobases support workgroup access and editing, and are capable of supporting an unlimited number of simultaneous searches across a Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN) and workgroup and workflow software.  In addition, Folio's Open Infobase Architecture enables third-party integrators to design custom applications with the Folio Software Developer's Kit or Folio 4.5 Integrator.


 The Folio Advantage  

Information is the key to success. The better the information, the better the chance for success, but only if it can be managed and used effectively. For most of us, it is not lack of availability of information that is our biggest problem; it is the lack of ability -- the ability to quickly find the needed relevant information along with the ability to effectively use that information when needed.


Folio products offer customers significant value in performing their business functions. Folio infobases provide a powerful and innovative approach to managing, distributing, and protecting large volumes of free-format and semi-structured electronic reference information.
