Advanced Document Capture Services

Improve access to information: Digitize paper documents and organize unstructured data.

Content workflow
 

It’s a fact of doing business today: Data is flooding into your business from every direction – emails, mixed media files, e-forms – even paper. As far back as 2014, researchers said that by 2020 the digital space will contain nearly as many bits of information as there are stars in the universe.1

It’s critical to reign in those vast amounts of enterprise data. Our Advanced Document Capture services convert unstructured digital documents and scan paper files, transforming all that data into meaningful electronic information, so you operate more efficiently and lower the cost of managing information.

Unlock Paper Data

Even if you use a document management system, you may face persistent challenges. Data must be continually extracted from paper-based files or unstructured digital formats like Word or PDF — and you’re under pressure to make business information easily searchable, editable and shareable.

Our Advanced Data Capture services incorporate Ephesoft Enterprise, an intelligent document and data capture platform that makes sense of the information coming in and automatically classifies, sorts, indexes, tags and extracts data. Kofax and Captiva are other advanced capture tools that you can incorporate into an enterprise content management (ECM) system to kick off a workflow or process.
