Best-value products for your organization

If you've ever researched products extensively, you'll also know the old maxim, "you get what you pay for" isn't generally true.  There are good values everywhere if you take the time to look, compare, and evaluate.  The products selected featured on this page have helped many organizations build collaborative communities of practice that connect people to their content and to one another.  These best value solutions have been selected to streamline processes and reduce your cost of operations.

Xerox DocuShare 7

The most cost-effective and scalable solution available letting you start with document archival and workgroup collaboration and growing with you from department to enterprise with one server or several federated servers.  The CPX edition adds process automation and other capabilities beyond the advanced document management capabilities of the Core edition.  Runs on Windows, Linux, and Solaris Unix.

ABBYY FlexiCapture / FlexiLayout

Capture information from forms and documents to feed into your databases and/or to use in automatically filing your documents where they belong by using DAVupDoc.  FlexiCapture is used for invoices and orders and many various types of documents.  The FlexiLayout Studio allows you (or us) to create dynamic templates that seek out the information in your documents you want to extract.  You then just verify the captured words and numbers that FlexiCaptures determines to be uncertain and presents them to you for correction, if necessary.  FlexiCapture reads various kinds of print including dot matrix and handprint along with barcodes, bubbles, and checkboxes.

ABBYY Recognition Server

This could be the perfect tool to convert all your contracts, correspondence, and other documentation into an easily searchable format that everyone in your company can use.  People and programs can both use the input/output folder set for routinely converting documents or you can email your scans and other images to it and receive your converted document as an attachment.  Other interfaces and connectors exist for websites, FTP servers, SharePoint, and DocuShare (see DAVupDoc from Criteria First) and a full API for precise control using job tickets.  You can convert from scans and image-only PDFs to editable Word and Excel documents and from MS Office formats to searchable PDFs in fast, scalable batch mode.  Some of our customers use the Indexing Station to tag documents to automate the filing process into DocuShare and other systems.  This is a versatile OCR platform that enterprises really suffer without.

DAVupDoc © by Criteria First

This the universal document upload program we've created to take information from your data capture and print-to-file software to DocuShare.  Information extracted from your forms, documents, and reports can be used to quickly and easily create a template to determine where your documents are to be archived and associate all the relevant information as metadata so that it can be used to categorize and retrieve them when you need them.  DAVupDoc works with any document format.  A command line interface allows you to process your files in batch mode all day long.  A free 15 day trial is available.

DocuPage Pro © by Criteria First

View your scanned image files and PDFs and enter relevant information about them and select from drop-down lists.  Once your documents are "tagged" you can click on the Proof button to make sure you haven't missed anything, then Send them to DocuShare.  Your template indicates how the documents will be named and where they will be filed.  Your information about the document becomes metadata.  Expiration dates can be set for later archival.  For more information, click on the product name.
