|Spectrum's Unique Position comes from the following:

for content -Multi-lingual
Full text search & retrieval, XML parsing, database

Spectrum has over 15 years of experience in dealing with
requirements of archival and retrieval on a day-to-day
basis for its flagship applications in the Law and
Banking arena. Mistakes in the Law domain prove costly
and Spectrum's processes have been refined to
ensure that minimum 99% accuracy is achieved.
Domain expertise in Metadata and taxonomy creation especially
for Legal and Financial Domains - It
is no longer just a question of archival. For data to be
meaningful, it has to be categorised - not just on
title, author, date, etc. but also on the content. This
requires expert manual intervention to create a tree of
subject indexes. Ideally, apart from index add-ons,
the relevant content should be searchable as is. Using
WordMiner, our Text Search engine, we have provided this
expertise for Law and Banking related information with
considerable success. The Reserve Bank of India,
India’s Central Bank, uses our services in this area
for over 5 years now.
