Architectural Overview of NatQuest Web

The architecture of this solution is unique and responds well to an organization's needs to transmit important masses of information through a dynamic environment.

NatQuest Web uses NTIndex to index HTML documents on a web site. Users can search the database using an HTML interface with any browser that supports HTML formats, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.

Once completed, the user's queries are sent to NTQuest via the HTML interface. NTQuest searches the web index and displays several views of the results, listing documents, for example, in order of relevance.

Users can immediately access the most relevant document, or select documents from other lists.

NatQuest Web is a very flexible search engine that enables this technology to be adapted to other web solutions.

NatQuest Web offers a realistic solution to a big problem: How to offer, via Internet, powerful and easy-to-use tools for the everyday web surfer?
