Ontolica Solution Use Case
Preview in SharePoint search results
Visualization speeds up work
Delivering preview of all content in Document Libraries and search result lists provide users with instant visual identification of information relevant to their projects. This shortens the distance between information needed and relevant content, which increases worker efficiency and productivity.
Inspect documents without downloading
Without a preview solution, users are forced to download content from SharePoint to their local device in order to inspect if a given document is useful to them. This leads to trial and error probing to find information and ultimately leads to end-user frustration with SharePoint.
Preview on public web sites
With the release of SP2013, more organizations are looking to SharePoint to provide the platform for their public websites. Adding a preview solution to a public website significantly increases functionality and stickiness to a website, which is especially helpful when viewing the site via mobile devices.
Preview without Office Web Apps Server
In SharePoint 2013, the basic preview functionality requires installing a separate Office Web Apps server farm in addition to your SharePoint farm. This extra infrastructure can be prohibitive due to extra cost and complexity. However, with Ontolica Preview full graphical previews are enabled without such overhead.
