Intuitive Search

Find the right results faster than ever before

Checkpoint Catalyst features Intuitive Search, a multi-layered approach that goes beyond keyword matching to understand and interpret what you’re really looking for in your search.

We’ve combined three key aspects of the search equation to ensure that the most applicable document to your search will show up at the top of your result list every time.

Intuitive search on Checkpoint. Find it. Faster. (2:36)

Search the Way You Think

Simply enter a terms and connectors, natural language, or citation search, and the enhanced search capability of Checkpoint Catalyst’s Intuitive Search will return the most relevant results for the terms you entered — no matter how you structure your search.

Easily Navigate Search Results

Our simplified results display makes it easy to skim and interpret results to get the most useful information quickly. We’ve enhanced our interface with a cleaner look and feel, resulting in minimal scrolling and fewer clicks. We also highlight keyword matches to make the strength of relevance easy to identify.

Source List Display

Source List Display flags sources with a green star to show they contain a result that is in the top 10 hits for relevancy. You can expand and collapse each source to see the three most relevant documents within — to quickly scan and select the best match for your research.

Triple-Powered Relevancy

  Technical Innovation

Checkpoint Catalyst Intuitive Search applies layers of analysis to filter, rank, and deliver the best results across all of your Checkpoint libraries with unprecedented levels of accuracy.

  Editorial Expertise

Checkpoint Catalyst Intuitive Search makes use of the cross references and “equivalency tables” created by our editorial experts to bring back documents related to your keywords. You won’t need to think about alternative search terms because we’ve already done it for you.

  User Behavior

Checkpoint Catalyst Intuitive Search uses built-in intelligence that continuously “learns” from user selections and preferences — getting smarter while you work.

Multi-Jurisdictional Analysis

Highlighting Federal, State and US International tax implications

State, Federal and U.S. International tax implications are covered as part of the main topic discussion, reducing the risk that something important could be missed and saving research steps.

The charts can be opened and closed from directly within this main content set, so you never have to leave the page you’re on. These embedded tools are a unique feature of the Checkpoint Catalyst library and help you zero-in on the state-related tax implications you need to know.

The Sales and Use Tax Treatment of Section 351 Exchanges is an example of an inline tool that will expand directly within your Checkpoint Catalyst Library.
