matter how skilled someone becomes using a computer or
typewriter, typographical errors upon data entry
are unavoidable, even if minimized. If
you're only writing a letter to a friend, that's just
fine, they probably won't mind. But what about
the important records in your Coroner's office where inaccuracies
can affect the results of searches and statistics... or
even have legal consequences?
addresses this issue with SmartFields™... an
exclusive Ingenuware-developed technology that is far
more precise than a spell checker. The
reason for its high degree of accuracy is because SmartField
Technology uses heuristic pattern analysis and
compares what you've typed with only the limited set
of possibilities available within the drop-down box
for the given field, not from a complete
dictionary. The combination of heuristics and an
appropriately discrete pool of items to compare against
makes SmartFields an essential tool to maintaining
the accuracy and viability of your data.
In addition to
the high degree of accuracy, SmartField Technology
leaves room for new items to be automatically added to
the system with CoronerBase's AutoList feature.
When you enter something truly uniquely different,
CoronerBase can easily make the new entry available
for future use, rather than requiring that you enter a
different part of the program to manage lists of
data. (Which of course you still can do with
CoronerBase if you prefer to maintain its lists manually!)
You can also take
advantage of SmartFields as a means to enter shortcuts
by purposefully entering significantly shorter
versions of available choices (such as "m"
for "male" and "f" for
"female", etc.) SmartFields will
automatically correct those entries, allowing you to harness
this robust feature for productivity.
Best of all,
as with all things in CoronerBase, SmartFields is
also extremely flexible. SmartFields
technology can be enabled, disabled, or its
sensitivity adjusted, and all of this is available on
a field-by-field basis... putting you in complete
control over exactly which fields employ this
technology, and to what degree.
accuracy and productivity, CoronerBase can help
you and your colleagues achieve higher degrees of
efficiency while enhancing the accuracy of the data
you enter, making your searches and statistics more
precise as well.
