Many ECM organizations use a tool such as InputAccel or Kofax for scanning. While these solutions are great for high volume bulk scanning and centralized scanning models, they can be expensive and overly complex for simple decentralized scanning needs.
The Solution: OpenCapture
OpenCapture is a module of OpenContent Case that provides a configurable web-based approach that allows users to easily scan, upload, and OCR documents directly into a content repository. A simple interface provides intuitive user controls for scanning documents, performing image manipulations such as rotations and crops, and setting metadata. Available metadata fields for document indexing can be configured based on the document type.
How it works – Under the Hood
- OpenContent Web Services – Isolates OpenCapture from the ECM repository and allows it to work against both Documentum and Alfresco. Users do not see a difference in the application functionality or layout.
- Dynamsoft ImageCapture Suite – ActiveX, Plugin or HTML5 control that drives the scanner, performs image manipulations and OCRs the document. Learn more about ImageCapture Suite.
