|As the combined phrase suggests, Intellisearch™ is
ManageMore's unique Intelligent
search engine which provides for a
powerful method of finding inventory items quickly at the point-of-sale
or wherever an inventory item lookup is needed throughout the program.
It sounds simple enough, but there is a whole bunch going on under the
hood that makes the Intellisearch technology a "must-have" for
businesses that manage large inventories.
The Basic Problem: Most POS and Inventory Control
software programs on the market today give you a few lookup methods for
finding a product among hundreds of inventory items in a database.
Common search methods usually include and Item code or UPC lookup.
However, more often than not, we need to find a product in inventory
based on the description of an item. Unfortunately, several
complexities occur when trying to find an item by its description
alone. These complexities slow down productivity for
salespersons, cashiers, purchasing managers, and ultimately the
1. Practically every commercially sold software program offers an
inventory description searching method, however, these programs require
you to type the description in the exact order and spelling as found in
your inventory database. For example, performing a search lookup
on "Bread Machine" would not even come close to helping you find the
"Ultimate Bread Machine" because it would display descriptions starting
with "B" not "U".
2. Another common problem is when an item's description is
lengthy and unclear as to the order the description may be listed
under. For example, someone searching for "George Foreman's
Extreme Grilling Machine" will be unsuccessful with searches like
"Extreme Grilling Machine by George Foreman" or "Foreman's
Grilling Machine Extreme" or even "Grilling Machine Extreme by George
Foreman". It doesn't matter how many search words match the
original description, most POS and inventory control systems will not
even come close at suggesting possible items that match your search
query. Ad-hoc query reports are the only alternative solutions
offered by many software vendors and are usually time-consuming to say
3. Yet another common problem comes from inventory items that
are difficult to spell or contain confusing homonyms. Try asking
someone to find a "Pfitzer Faucet" in your inventory, and you will
probably get various unsuccessful search attempts like "Fitser Fawcet",
"Phitser Fausett", "Fitzor Fausset" or even "Fixer Fawset".
Here is a list of some other tricky spellings that will most likely
be spelled incorrectly by even the most educated of people:
"Beautiful Decanter", "Our Favorite Pastime", "Laugh Out Loud Elmo",
"Boars Head Gouda Cheese", "Miniature People Doll House", "Rhythm and
Rhyme Music Set", "Millennium Collectible Pendant", "Kaplan
Educational Toys", and "Eagle Pneumatic Air Tools".
The Intellisearch™ Solution: ManageMore provides a
unique built-in intelligent search engine that resolves all of the
problems mentioned above. It can quickly find the inventory item
you are looking for, no matter how badly you misspell the description,
or in what order you type that description.
Using a phonetic based search technique, ManageMore will find your
products by how they sound, rather than how they are supposed to be
spelled. This makes it easy to deal with unusual manufacturer
names, tricky homonyms, or difficult spellings like "Pneumatic".
Our Intellisearch engine can provide accurate search matches against
inventories with thousands of items... and all within just a few
seconds or less.
There is no real need to use other search methods like manufacturer,
model, category, department, etc. when Intellisearch can find the item
you are looking for quickly and easily.
As an added bonus, the Intellisearch technology is also available
for looking up customer names by a phonetic "sounds-like" approach as
well. This makes it handy to find customers with unusual
spellings in their names.
Say farewell to the ordinary software that makes it difficult to
find what you're looking for...
Let ManageMore's Intellisearch™ technology save you precious time while
working within the ManageMore business software suite.
