Google Style Search for Dwg files

No matter how organised your filing and cad standards are there will always be time spent searching for information that has been detailed before and not added to the system or showing new staff where information is located. In this vain I typed google style search engine for dwg’s in google about a month do so ago I came across a program calling Drawing Searcher by Docupoint

I downloaded the trail and installed and was impressed at the speed of the indexing and searching. The price was very reasonable as well I thought. Once set up on your server you just can direct users to go to an internal webpage and they can search all the documents quickly on all company servers and archives for what ever they are after.
