This week, there were a number of new partnerships and products. OpenText upgraded its document Capture Centre, Doculex upgraded WebSearch, Colligo and PSIGEN partnered for better iPad access, eFileCabinet improved its workflows and Citrix partnered with Results for better CRM.

OpenText’s Upgraded Capture Centre

OpenText this week released an upgrade to its OpenText Capture Centre software that enables organizations to more quickly and efficiently capture, digitize and index paper documents, forms and faxes, and then move them into virtually any backend system.

The new version offers several enhancements, including improved precision for recognition tasks such as scans from mobile devices, helping users to reduce their dependence on paper-based processes and deliver electronic content to corporate workflows and business processes.

As an open document capture platform, it uses optical character recognition (OCR) and intelligent document recognition (IDR) to classify documents and to extract business or index data.

Once documents are collected from various sources, they are analyzed and delivered to a variety of backend systems from OpenText and other vendors, such as SAP and Microsoft, for further processing, or are placed into an archive to boost storage efficiency and improve records management and governance.

The new version also offers improved support for documents captured by mobile devices, which is becoming an ad hoc document-scanning alternative.

As the cameras deployed in these devices do not provide the same fidelity of images as document scanners, Capture Centre 10.2 employs improved image handling algorithms as well as a new method for improved character recognition.

It also  integrates with OpenText Tempo for  file sharing and syncing from any device.

Doculex Upgrades WebSearch

Also this week, DocuLex upgraded WebSearch to v 4.4. WebSearch 4.4 includes an integrated browser based capture solution. Any user, with permission, can use the capture component of WebSearch without any additional cost.

If granted permissions by the administrator, users of WebSearch can scan and index documents into WebSearch without additional capture license purchases or click charges.

Doculex says in this release WebSearch is pulling Microsoft’s .net architecture, multi transactional parallel processing, plus advanced security and enhanced management features together.

WebSearch is the document management component of Archive Studio and can be used as a service in the cloud or acquired as an on-premises server-based solution. Check out the video for more on it.


PSIGEN, Colligo Partner

Meanwhile, PSIGEN and Colligo have teamed to announce the release of Scan2Go, a document management solution for scanning, syncing and securely gaining access to documents on the iPad.

Scan2Go incorporates PSIGEN's PSI:Capture document capture platfor, to scan and migrate paper documents to SharePoint, which can then be securely accessed, remotely or offline, through Colligo Briefcase, the secure iPad app for SharePoint.

For many of today's organizations, critical documents still live in file cabinets or binders, making them impossible to retrieve in the field or on the road…Scan2Go makes this information available…on mobile devices, online or off. "We've seen great demand for secure remote access to paper-based content, and are excited to work with Colligo to solve this challenge for SharePoint users,” said Stephen Boals, VP of Sales, PSIGEN said.

Scan2Go is available from PSIGEN and Colligo now.

eFileCabinet Workflow Routing

eFileCabinet has also been busy this week and announced the release of its Advanced Workflow tool for eFileCabinet.

This tool permits businesses to move their manual paper-based workflow processes to electronic routing within the eFileCabinet Document Management system.

Time-saving features include conditional routing to a user or group with custom messaging, the allocating of document permissions to maintain security and the ability to move and copy a file to another folder during the workflow process.

It also offers users the ability to approve or deny files and view documents from the Workflow dialogue window, the assigning of document profiles or metadata at the start of the workflow process so data remains with the file and the capability to preset document retention.

Citrix, Results Bundle

Finally this week, Results Software announced the integration of Citrix ShareFile with Results’ CRM solution. The integration enables users to send, receive, sync and share large files with anyone, from anywhere and using any device, within a secure services space.

The integration with ShareFile provides Results CRM users with an in-the-cloud document management solution in addition to the existing Results document management options.

This allows Results users to gain access to those attached documents from within Results or from ShareFile. ShareFile also enables the creation of a custom-branded, password-protected space where users can exchange business files with clients more easily and securely.

ShareFile supports the ability to send large files by email, conduct a secure file transfer or use a shared online space where project-related files can be posted.

The Results-ShareFile Integration module is currently shipping and is included at no additional charge in all Results QuickStart Bundles.
