retrieval software

Retrieval software can be translated as research software. It is software that can be used to search for specific documents, content or keywords in unstructured databases.

Such retrieval searches are performed in databases and archives, in content management and knowledge management, in library catalogs or in search engine databases. The searches can be for documents, texts, audio or video.

Thanks to the retrieval software, searches in reference works can be carried out in a time-saving and cost-effective manner. In addition to the classic search with the input of search words, retrieval software also offers the possibility of linking search words with each other or researching semantic connections.
