FDA Uses CVISION to Index and Optimize Content in its Large Repository
The United States Food and Drug Administration needed a solution to help manage the large volume of documents in its repository. Their documents existed in many formats, which forced the agency to support multiple viewers in order to access all the different file types. In addition, the ability to search on documents in the repository was extremely limited since the documents were images with no searchable text, making it difficult and time consuming to locate and retrieve specific documents.
The inability to search the full text of all documents led the FDA to choose CVISION’s PdfCompressor solution. With PdfCompressor, the federal government agency was able to identify images in the repository, convert them to compressed, web-optimized, and fully-text searchable PDF’s, and have the entire content of all documents fully indexed in its repository. This enabled the agency to quickly search for information, access documents more rapidly, and reduce the number of viewers needed to support their library of content.
With CVISION’s PdfCompressor, the federal government agency was able to organize and interact with their repository more efficiently. With indexed, text-searchable documents, the FDA could now search on all of the content within their repository, enabling faster access to the information they contain. In addition, by converting all documents to the PDF format, PdfCompressor eliminated the need to support multiple viewers, making it even easier for users to work with their repository. Lastly, by compressing and optimizing all the images in its repository, the government agency could view, download, transmit and interact with documents more quickly both in the office and on mobile devices for maximum accessibility.
