Rapid Access Search™
The larger the library, the more important a fast, effective search function becomes. getAbstract's state-of-the-art Rapid Access™ search enables everyone in your organization to locate relevant knowledge in getAbstract's thousands of summaries with as few as two clicks. That's truly information at your fingertips!
Rapid Access™ begins with a zero-time connection to getAbstract. A dedicated URL for your company provides a direct, instant link to the library. There are no silos of knowledge.
Other smaller, limited summary libraries present two problems to people who are searching for relevant knowledge: The libraries either don't have any summaries on a topic, or they turn up lists of books that have very little relevance. After a couple of fruitless searches, users quickly decide to look elsewhere for the knowledge they need to do their jobs.
However, because getAbstract has the world's largest summary library, you are likely to find an array of titles relevant to your interests. Moreover, getAbstract uses a relevancy search to present you with the book summaries that are most pertinent and applicable to your search.
Rapid Access™ employs advanced Web 2.0 mechanisms to speed up your exploration of expert knowledge. When you hover over a book cover, a dynamic book preview appears, giving you at-a-glance information about the book's relevance. So without leaving the Web page, you can discover which book summaries best meet your learning goals.
Rather than employing a static category tree that lists books in broad, one-level groups, getAbstract uses Web 2.0 dynamic cascading menus, so you can explore the library more quickly and with greater precision.
All these capabilities give your people the information they need in the most time-saving and hassle-free way. This is one reason why getAbstract customers report such high usage rates in their organizations.
Rapid Access Search in action
Let's say you are responsible for logistics at your company, and you want to read up on supply chains. Simply enter the term "supply chains" into our search tool. getAbstract's Rapid Access Search will instantly generate a selection of summaries sorted by relevance (see right).
You can use the getAbstract book ratings, as well as the "bestseller" label, to help you choose the titles you want to view.
To access additional details, simply hover over the book to get an instant pop-up description.
Now, imagine you are the CLO, and the CEO wants you to provide him or her with the latest information on supply chains. You can offer strong, relevant recommendations in a matter of minutes, demonstrating a responsiveness that is not possible when using other systems.
