Author-it 5.0 is the first content management system to include interactive authoring memory. This memory product feature will be known as Author-it Xtend.

Using intelligent “fuzzy logic” matching, this new feature makes all of the approved knowledge/content contained in a company’s database available to content creators, eliminating the need to perform a time-consuming manual search. In fact, studies conducted by several industry experts have indicated that knowledge workers spend up to 35 percent of their time searching for information.

The concept behind Author-it Xtend is that it automates the re-use of content and places the knowledge of an organization at the fingertips of all users — when they need it. Once a user begins typing, matching or similar content is located and returned instantly — even if he or she is unaware that the content exists.

Suggestions can be revealed in as few as three words and in a fraction of a second. Users can choose to instantly insert any of the suggestions, see what documents those suggestions currently appear in, or continue typing to refine the suggestions. The reuse of content not only saves time and money in content production and localization (translation), it ensures that consistent messages are conveyed in both a company’s external and internal communications.
