NLA Chooses Flax for New Generation Content Service

The Newspaper Licensing Agency (NLA) is the latest organisation to install the Flax enterprise search system as part of a major online news development known as eClips. eClips allows press cuttings agencies and their customers online access to a database of national and regional newspaper content in text and PDF format from a central resource, the first time direct access to articles from multiple titles in image form has been available.

The Flax software, which powers eClips, was developed by Lemur Consulting in Cambridge, and builds on established open-source software. Flax can build searchable indexes of millions of documents in common formats such as Microsoft Office, HTML and Adobe Acrobat PDF, which can then be searched in milliseconds using a customisable interface to meet specific needs. Flax is cross-platform and provides highly accurate and relevant results.
