Abstract: 

We developed an easy-to-use tool for non-technical biomedical researchers to conduct Named-Entity Recognition (NER) on biomedical text, in a familiar spreadsheet environment. The system is a simple, offline, easy to install, end-user front-end to the new MetaMap Lite. Early adopters found it to be a quick starting-point to incorporate NER in their investigations.
