Synaptica KMS

Synaptica KMS is an award-winning, robust and highly scalable enterprise taxonomy management system.
Benefits include:


  • Improve retrieval by mapping terms to alternative synonyms, aliases and acronyms.
  • Improve precision by disambiguating concepts and names that have multiple meanings.
  • Improve discovery by providing navigational paths to find broader, narrower and related content.
  • Enable query refinement via faceted search filters. Validate data using authoritative resources.
  • Reduce the time and money spent searching for information.
  • Reduce corporate risk by improving accuracy and completeness.
  • Improve customer satisfaction through enhanced user experiences.

Ease of Use and Enterprise Scalability

Intuitive user interfaces and rapid system configuration are hallmarks of the Synaptica KMS application. Once the entity and relationship types required for a KOS scheme have been defined, it is possible to configure and deploy a production system in under an hour. Flexible administration tools allow custom schemes, properties and relationship types to be designed and combined with industry standard business rules governing controlled vocabulary management.

Flexibility and Functionality

Synaptica’s design ethos has always been to listen carefully to our editorial and administrative users and then create user experiences that simplify your day-to-day tasks. Synaptica provides screens and workflows optimized for the different jobs that you do, whether that is rapid term creation, detailed development of each concept’s property set and semantic structure, drag-and-drop hierarchy editing, or the mapping and alignment of multiple taxonomies. Synaptica provides a wide range of options for performing complex tasks with unparalleled ease.

Insightful Views and Reports

Faceted search, tree-browse and visualization interfaces provide many ways to explore how concepts and taxonomies relate to one another.

Powerful query tools support searching within or across multiple taxonomies using over 70 parameters. Extracted data can then be presented in tabular, alphabetical or hierarchical formats and generated in human-readable HTML, MS Word and Excel, or machine-readable RDF, XML or CSV.

Complex reports only need to be formulated once; they can then be saved to a shared management report library with scheduling options that can automatically run and distribute reports to need-to-know stakeholders.

Collaboration and Governance

Enterprise taxonomies are often curated by a team of people with different domain expertise and knowledge. Synaptica supports 12 levels of role-based permissions. Users log in through project specific portals that control which taxonomies each user can see and the tasks they can perform with them. Standard and custom workflow states allow for editorial review, QC, and the publication and retirement of terms and taxonomies.
