Search and Discovery

The goal of developing TAS Search

The basic idea of developing TAS Search was to help identifying and enabling all content across the enterprise to be indexed, searched, and displayed to authorized users. Whether you have your own data or it comes from the TAS Data Collector, it is more transparent and useful if a sophisticated keyword search function is available, because the text content without access is worthless.

The goal of developing TAS Search

We created a software that enables you to launch searches both in your documents and web based contents. Our enterprise search engine makes the various sources of data searchable whether it can be found in databases, emails, HTML pages, in PDF, DOC or another document formats. Besides all of the essential enterprise search functions it provides a lot of specialized features as well. TAS Search Engine is a Lucene (Solr / Elastic) based search engine.  

For more details see the Features section.

The advantage of using TAS Search / Features

TAS Search engine can be optimized for special searching needs and it is widely customizable if necessary, in order to make the search experience as convenient and effective as possible.

Searching process details

The user interface is widely customizable – based on the requirements of the customer and could be used by multiple users simultaneously.

During the usage of the UI the user can choose between simple search and advanced search functions. Simple search is for a quick lookup, while advanced search is optimized for more sophisticated and detailed searches.

Operators you can use in a search:

We provide a Help documentation with details and examples to understand how to use these operators.

The user can see all the available details of a search result. For example:

The look of TAS Search

TAS Search GUI can be created within the confines of TAS Platform (TAS Cloud service) or On Premise (locally installed).  The look of the GUI can be made using the corporate identity of TAS Platform or we can build a unique search GUI. The visualization of search results and other part of the search user interface are also configurable. The particular solution depends on the customer’s needs.


We have made a DEMO UI where you can get insight of how the searching user interface looks like and how it works. The given example, “Recipe Search” is able to let you launch searches among recipes (by an ingredient or food name) and displays you the results – your search expressions may be Hungarian or English.
