Rocket Folio Views®

Folio Views® is a high-performance, information retrieval software tool designed for professionals who rely on immediate access to information to make decisions.

Folio Views makes people more effective and efficient at finding and providing instant answers, making decisions, consulting clients, and solving problems using information.

Rocket Folio® Builder

Folio® Builder is an industrial–strength suite of tools that streamlines the process of converting, compiling, and securing professional information.

Folio® infobases serve as secure containers that make information in them more valuable to end users and more manageable for publishers and corporate information managers. Folio® Builder makes it easy to collect information from diverse sources and file formats, combine their contents into a Folio® infobase, and manage user access rights associated with the information.

Folio® Builder helps the information specialist who organizes, updates, and maintains collections of information. It also serves commercial publishers who create professional electronic information titles.

Flexible, Automated Project Management. Folio® Builder oversees the conversion of large source files into Folio infobases, providing complete control over the build process from the first steps of data conversion through the final steps of indexing and compressing.

Rights Management. Folio® Builder lets information owners control who can access information, what they can do with it, and how long they can use it. Folio® Builder can generate passwords that unlock secure or expired data.

With the wrong tools, managing today's flood of information and providing usable access to it for employees and customers can be a overwhelming. As part of Folio 4™, Folio® Builder makes the job easy with flexible automation, Internet capability, and security functions.


Rocket Folio® Publisher

Folio® Publisher provides a software solution for commercial publishers who want to sell their informational content electronically. It lets publishers package robust information retrieval software with their information and provides a redistribution license and software solution for creating commercial infobase titles. Sophisticated security protects publishers' intellectual property, and supports diverse sales agreements, while powerful functionality makes that information more valuable to end users.

Access Control. By managing access down to the paragraph level, publishers can distribute the same information to multiple users and retain control over who can and cannot access subsections of the information. Controlling concurrent use of an information title lets publishers distribute information within an organization, confident that the number of concurrent users won't exceed the number designated in the sales agreement. RSA™ encryption protects secured information from unauthorized use.

Subscription Control. Folio's advanced rights management software lets you control who can access your information, what they can do with it, and how long they can use it. Publishers can designate expiration dates for information collections or generate passwords to unlock secure or expired data for particular customers. This allows publishers to generate subscription-based revenue from electronic titles year after year.

Publishing with Folio maximizes the value of your published information to your customers. A special version of Folio Views®-included in Folio® Publisher for redistribution-gives users complete control over information.

With its ready to use components, security and commerce functionality, and distribution enabling features, Folio® Publisher makes electronic publishing easy, safe, and profitable.
