filofant is an open source email and document indexing server with a customizable webinterface like a web search engine.
It is designed for companies and other groups that want to share their information in an easy and fast way.
The daily e-mail problem
What international studies have proven of late, and entrepreneurs and employees in the age of modern information technology have long known, is that email inboxes are getting ever fuller and even more business critical information is being exchanged by email.
Everyone, who has ever searched for an important email knows how long it takes to find exactly what you are looking for. In which email is the information? Is it concealed in an attachment? What email has the right attachment? Often it is a case of trying to find the needle in the haystack and often business critical information cannot be located again.
filofant produces a knowledge pool with shared company wide emails. The emails and attachments are automatically categorised by keywords, indexed in full text and organised in a multidimensional structure. The filofant prepares the information contained within and allows all employees to access this new knowledge database straightaway. Each employee can arrange their own search tools and is kept informed of any new interesting developments.
Over and above this the filofant is an e-mail archive and a company wide search engine which can connect all network drives. It's easy to use and can be installed in just a few hours.
