Existing content solutions do not provide easy access to, or tools to efficiently research and navigate, legal and regulatory content and internal records at any point-in-time.
When researching or accessing historical content users are faced with a number of challenges:
- Access is to individual versions of content only, rather than the complete content set at the selected date
- Broken Links
- links do not work
- links that do work might link to the current version of related material rather than the version that existed at the selected date
- Historic content is not readily available and may be stored on legacy formats that require time and a break in workflow to access
- Changes to content over time are not easy to identify
Propylon's point-in-time technology provides:
In TimeArc, users navigate the complete library of content as it appeared at any selected point-in-time. By selecting any date the user is presented with a complete view of the content set for that date, all related and linked content is also as it appeared at that selected point-in-time. By presenting users with a timeline of their content, they can select any two versions to visually compare the changes between them.
TimeArc's ‘time-ware' links are permanent, active links. When a user clicks on, or copies, a TimeArc permanent URL, they will always be taken to that version of the content as it was at that point-in-time.
When a user selects a date in TimeArc and performs a search on the content, they are assured they are searching the complete library of content as it was for their selected date.
