||BullsEye Pro : reach your target !|
BullsEye is a search agent developed by IntelliSeek. In version 2, BullsEye is available in Plus and Pro versions: the second one, which has all the features offered by the editor, is undoubtedly the most complete.
BullsEye works on the same principle as all metasearch engines : simultaneous querying of many search tools (directories, engines, databases). Many features have been added to this common base, making it one of the most powerful tools in its category.
Thematic research ...
- Multimedia (images, audio, video)
- Discussions (newsgroups)
- References (FAQs, encyclopaedia)
To start a query, you need to select the subject you are interested in, specify an optional subcategory, then choose your keywords. In the advanced mode, other features can be set such as the choice of the search tools and the level of analysis to be done (no analysis- for a quick preview-, removal of dead links, downloading and analysis). By configuring your query with these settings you can get results which meet your expectations as closely as possible. Once you’ve launched the query, results can be directly viewed within the application, as BullsEye has an integrated browser. Keywords are highlighted in the retrieved document for easier viewing; also, results can be selected, filtered, saved and exported.
... and a tracking module.
BullsEye has many options, that are (fortunately) presented in an user-friendly and ergonomic interface. Using and configuring the software is easy, and browsing is very intuitive.
BullsEye has a module, "BullsEye Tracker", that perfectly complements its search mode. As its name suggests, this module enables you to track Web pages as well as your search queries, sending alerts when sites change or new sites appear in a specified theme. The integration of your bookmarks within the application enables you to easily monitor your favorite sites. Another very interesting option allows you to launch the monitoring module at a specific time.
BullsEye is undoubtedly one of the most efficient tools for information retrieval, offering many features and smartly combining information retrieval and Internet monitoring. Although it is sadly not possible to add new search tools to the existing ones (you can only recommend them), BullsEye will have its place on the computer of the most demanding information researchers.
