Ephesoft is an open source, intelligent document capture & data classification platform that accelerates the identification of various document types and extracts meaningful data to feed back ECM systems like Alfresco, office applications and line of business processes.
At the start of this blog I think its important for me to let you know a bit about me, I’m Paul Barber, I’ve been working in the Document Capture marketplace for the last 20 years and have, along the way had to pleasure of working on projects that involve market leading software from the likes of Kofax, EMC, AnyDOC, Tis and Readsoft.
There's a revolution coming in the mailroom, even if you've already implemented a digital mailroom it is time to look again, new solutions are streamlining processes and enabling businesses to adopt a 'point of entry' document capture philosophy.
I don’t know about you, but if you’ve ever been in the situation where you have been asked for additional proof of address or income information as part of an application for something, there are times when it can be very frustrating. Take for instance a couple of years ago I wanted to buy a new car, nothing posh, not too expensive either.
The first thing I’m going to do is let everybody know what I mean by a Platform of Capture. For many people they will be of the view that it is purely document scanning, a user walks up to a MFD (what is MFD?) or equivalent, scans a document and it goes to a file share or into their e-mail.
