System Simulation's hugely scalable and flexible database system, Index+ demonstrates a diverse range of successful applications for a broad range of prestigious clients. All our products are built upon Index+.
Index+ is a powerful software toolkit for creating systems to manage structured and unstructured text, data, still and moving images, sound and video. It features fast searching, very high storage capacity, a robust, network orientated, server-client architecture and a range of application development tools. Index+ is designed for UNIX, MS-Windows, NT and mixed environments.
Index+ provides the core of System Simulation's technology and has been developed by the company over many years to make it a highly reliable, robust and effective toolkit.
ImageIndex+ is professional, high-capacity, image management. It provides multiple-access, powerful cataloguing and terminology management, structured search, tools to support efficient work processes and flexible access/delivery.
ContentIndex+ is a versatile content management system. It supports the creation, editing, interlinking and version control of text, images and multimedia for publishing to websites, kiosks, mobile devices, DVD and print.
Terminology and thesaurus management promote accuracy in cataloguing and efficiency in searching, particularly over large data sets. They are important tools in the professional management of data and in delivering top-class systems and services. Multi-lingual thesauri allow data to be opened up to whole new audiences.
System Simulation provides terminology systems and also analysis and advice on improving existing systems.
A series of Index+ tools allow data held in an Index+ system to be accessed and searched or harvested remotely, through a variety of protocols including OAI, SOAP, Z39.50 and SRW/U. Related tools, such as the Index+ Bridge, draw data into an Index+ system from external, distributed repositories.
AssetIndex+ is a powerful and efficient system for the management of a wide range of digital assets (images, video, audio, text and drawings, PowerPoint presentations etc). With many practical and innovative features, it has benefited from System Simulation's extensive experience in the management of complex data.
ArchiveIndex+ is an easy-to-use management system for archives, based on the ISAD(G) standard, that supports and assists the flexible organisation of papers, letters and other archive material. It includes a powerful search engine and graphical display of multi-level hierarchies with drag-and-drop organising facilities.
BooksIndex+ is a system for the management of book collections and libraries with provision for professional library cataloguing, based on the MARC standard. The system is, however, sensitive to the needs of staff who are not trained librarians and provides a series of helpful features to support the cataloguing process.
The Index+ Visualiser is a dynamic graphic tool which displays the contents of an Index+ database as a picture. You can access different parts of the database by clicking on different parts of the picture and see information moving about on the screen until you find what you're looking for.
MuseumIndex+ is part of a new generation of systems for managing the collections of museums and galleries. It is based on our well-established MUSIMS system, developed in conjunction with a series of prestigious clients, but is now directly modelled on the SPECTRUM 3 standard with enhanced support for management processes and for meeting Accreditation criteria.
