Intelligent Document Capture with Ephesoft and Zia

Rapid ROI: From the Mailroom to the Mobile Device

Across virtually every industry and level of government, the processing of documents exists. For some—such as those in banking and insurance, government agencies, or corporate HR and AP departments—this task can be critical to the success of the organization. Historically, most of this document processing involved a large amount of paper. While that has changed for many organizations, particularly with the rise of scanning and capture technologies, electronic document processing is still a very costly and complex manual activity—where growing business often requires increasing staff.

Accelerate Document Automation solutions from Zia deliver a rapid ROI by automating costly and complex manual efforts. Our offerings are powered by the most modern intelligent capture technology on the market today—Ephesoft Smart Capture®. With Ephesoft intelligent document capture, we automatically classify, sort, and extract data from paper, fax, and electronic documents—from the mailroom to the mobile device. Smart Capture utilizes powerful algorithms to extract critical information from your physical and electronic documents, while helping you manage the exporting and importing of batch classes.

Mailroom Automation Solutions

To modernize mailroom automation, Ephesoft delivers both business value and technology advancements. By eliminating click or page charges, providing subscription or purchase pricing, and as the only intelligent capture software available on Linux, the total cost of ownership for Ephesoft is often substantially lower than for other intelligent document capture (IDC) technologies.

Similarly, from a technology perspective, Ephesoft delivers significant advantages over legacy capture vendors including:

  • Thin Client Architecture
  • Open Standards
  • Classification Without Bar Codes/Separator Pages
  • Extraction from Structured/Unstructured Documents
  • Integration With ERP, CRM, HCM

Embedded Capture

While many of these advancements significantly differentiate Ephesoft, it’s the web services APIs that allow Zia to fully deliver a modern document automation solution to address the needs of today’s businesses. Leveraging these APIs, we provide In-Process Capture (IPC) by embedding Ephesoft intelligent document capture into a wide range of other technologies. This allows the classification and extraction of data within workflows or business process. With IPC, we deliver capture within:

  • ECM Repositories (Alfresco)
  • SharePoint Solutions
  • Websites/Portals
  • Email Solutions

Extended Capture

Looking ahead, we have seen requests from insurance companies, federal government agencies, and more to extend the capture process out to the field. With our Accelerate Mobile Capture solutions, based on the Ephesoft Mobile SDK, we are able to support mobile capture needs for everyone from field reps to customers and constituents. Allowing for both the classification and extraction of mobile content, as well as mobile administration of the capture process, our Accelerate Mobile Capture solutions can help your organization save time and money.
