Efficiently develop taxonomies

YETI®

Taxonomy development is a complex process. It must combine domain expertise with technical ability. Collaboration is difficult when experts are based in different offices and locations. Slow decision-making and duplication hinder taxonomy design and increases costs.

Yeti® is a convenient taxonomy viewer with a built-in collaborative discussion forum and an issue-tracking system. It is a reliable, well-proven way of maintaining tight control over the taxonomy development process; eliminating duplications and promoting accuracy.

Coordinate decision making

The collaboration capabilities of Yeti allows coordinated decision making between domain experts around the globe. Chosen groups of technical and business experts work together to efficiently design the taxonomy. The draft taxonomy can be shared online in Yeti® allowing feedback from members of the public.

Seamlessly review discussions

Yeti forms an integral part of CoreFiling’s Taxonomy Management System. It can be used in conjunction with SpiderMonkey® to increase transparency and enhance the quality of work. Yeti® allows for a designated moderator or taxonomy developer to review the most recent comments and discussions, influencing the final decision about how to treat the problem in the next taxonomy revision.
