Meta Makes Searching For Documents A Breeze

Meta offers a solution to finding lost documents on a hard drive and in the cloud.

/**/ /**/

Boston-based Meta has created a solution to an all-too-common problem: trying to find a document on a crowded computer hard drive.

In today’s work environment, an employee may create hundreds of documents a month. Finding those documents at a later date through Windows search or Apple spotlight can become a time-consuming, frustrating ordeal.

’The average employee wastes four hours each week searching for, or re-creating, lost work,’ said Meta co-founder Emily Pavlini.

Meta links with Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Evernote and local files and applies conceptual smart tags. That means when an employee goes to look for a spreadsheet from the previous fiscal quarter, he or she doesn't have to remember the name of the file, or even most of its contents.

’Basically our goal is to have you never waste time wondering where you saved a file or what you named it,’ Pavlini said.

Meta’s interface is user-friendly with a search bar, related smart tags and file previews. Meta ranks results, and files open in their native program.

Meta is currently in beta version.
