Re: [ba-ohs-talk] Scopeware - Sound Off!
Couple of questions come to mind. That because, surfing the site,
Scopeware looks a lot like an OHS to me. (01)
The site says:
"MWT is not a search engine, database or information management company.
Rather its strength lies in its ability to translate, store, display and
share any type of information asset. This provides a ground breaking and
powerful infrastructure that is being used to deliver the next generation
of Integrated Information Management products today; light years ahead of
traditional unified messaging applications. " (02)
and the site also says:
"Scopeware 2.0 captures, indexes, and makes available information stored
within your organization in real time. Users can search for information
based on document title, document content, when the document was created,
document type and more. Furthermore, streams of information can be refined
allowing users to zero in on the document or documents that they need — all
of this without once leaving their desk.
Based on our patented information storage and access technology, Scopeware
2.0 is designed to grow with your organization. Add scan and retrieve
functionality and mobile access as your business needs expand. " (03)
Patented information storage and access technology. (04)
Question 1: please cite the patent number(s). (05)
Below, you say Scopeware is affordable. Nowhere on the site can I find a
price list. (06)
Question 2: What does the product cost? (07)
If my "sound off" sounds hostile, it is not meant to be so. Rather, I'm
sure that you know that this particular band of code hackers and OHS
aficionados just happens to pay close attention to great contributions to
the product mix (as Scopeware may be), but we also pay closer attention to
those products that happen to carry patented technology. And, perhaps,
speaking only for myself, there is great concern over product offerings
that mask their costs behind pdf files that require filling out and snail
mailing just to find out what the price is. (08)
