Beyond paper: Document capture software for electronic content

It’s not just paper documents that should be captured and centralized within your enterprise content management (ECM) system. Your electronic business information is often scattered across file shares, email inboxes, Microsoft SharePoint sites, fax servers and other business systems.

Document capturing software allows you to manage all related documents together in one system.

  • Integration for Microsoft Outlook – Enable users to capture emails and attachments when they’re received, instantly associating them a relevant folder, case or business transaction.
  • EmailOnBase automatically captures, classifies and stores emails and attachments sent to centralized addresses. These emails can trigger business processes, eliminating costly delays and improving customer satisfaction.
  • Fax servers – By integrating with popular fax servers, OnBase eliminates the need to print faxes and captures them electronically, making them instantly available to appropriate personnel.
  • Mainframes and AS/400 applications – OnBase electronically captures ASCII, PCL, AFP, DJDE, PDF and XML print and data streams generated by these business systems and separates, classifies and indexes the documents automatically.
  • File shares, FTP sites and SharePoint sitesOnBase provides several tools to easily import large volumes of documents stored on network drives or FTP sites using existing text and XML data for identification. Integrations with SharePoint allow documents to be manually or automatically archived into OnBase.
  • “Print” to OnBase –  Stop printing documents just so they can be scanned. Archive documents into OnBase from any application with a print function. By means of a virtual print driver, content found in websites or other business applications is converted to image format and stored in OnBase, and instantly associated with the related information.
