Command E is a free tool, suitable for small businesses or individual use. Although the price is more than competitive, this search engine has certain limitations in its use. Indeed, this competitive pricing comes at the expense of search quality. Command E is limited to searching in the document title, which makes the process considerably more complex if you can't remember exactly what it is.
If you're looking for an alternative that offers you an optimal search experience that will search your entire documents, and the whole company, a solution like Outmind will suit you better.
Outmind offers more advanced features at a price that's affordable for any type of business. Here's a comparison of Command E vs Outmind features to help you judge the value for money.
Here's a comparison of Outmind's features.
Safety and Compliance
Although Command E is an interesting product, it is still rather limited in its search capabilities.
This is precisely what we expect from a search engine. If we already know where the information is, the value provided is not there.
Another important point for companies: improving the sharing of information between employees. But Command E does not offer management by company, only user by user.
So although it is free, the offer is still a little short of an optimal product for companies.
Company data is particularly important for confidentiality reasons.
In this context, using a French tool rather than an American one is reassuring.
Indeed, Outmind is based in Paris, and hosts all of its services on French territory, in servers that meet the highest security requirements and are ISO 27001 certified. And Outmind is of course RGPD compliant.
Furthermore, it is always important to ask yourself what the consideration is when using a free product.
