To dramatically enhance findability, Searchlight Tagger can automatically add metadata tags based on document content.

Searchlight OCR is a separate part of the Searchlight suite that can ensure that image PDFs and other image documents have Optical Character Recognition applied so that their text content is available to the tagging process as well as SharePoint text search indexing.

Searchlight Tagger can be optimized specifically for your business requirements as part of the package.
