Lookeen Desktop Search – How to save time through better search

Everyone creates and shares files and documents, everyone uses email, and everyone struggles to manage the excessive amounts of data flooding into our lives every day. The Findwise Findability Survey 2014 found that time wasted searching and dealing with documents cost organizations more than 20% of their total productivity, and almost $20,000 per employee per year. Lookeen Desktop Search is a great solution for anyone who has ever struggled to find an important email or document, or who has given up on their extensive and time-consuming filing system.

What is Lookeen?

Lookeen is a Windows desktop search tool that makes the task of finding your documents, emails, attachments, appointments and any other file types simple and efficient. Lookeen is a streamlined and simple tool compatible with all Windows desktops and can also be easily integrated into Outlook.

How does it work?

Lookeen builds an index of your computer hard drive, Outlook pst files, any external drives you choose to add and more. The index puts your data quite literally at your fingertips – hit ctrl+ctrl to open Lookeen then start typing. The search-as-you-type function starts bringing up results to a query as soon as the first letter enters the search bar.

More than 25 filter options allow you to narrow down a search quickly and easily: search by date, file type, contact name, file location and more. Lookeen also supports Boolean, proximity and wildcard searches, so even if you can’t remember the exact file name or content, or need to search for multiple similarly named documents, you’re covered.
