Alfresco is a powerful content platform and it deserves a powerful capture tool to structure its content.

If you let users decide how they want their content structured, you face the risk of ending up with a lot of lost and unstructured data that will remove value from your Alfresco system. If you don’t have any policies and rules to create folders, define document names, manage versioning and assign metadata, you rely on procedures and the good will of your users for this task.

Librex solves this problem. Whether you want to scan a paper document or capture an electronic one through fax, manual or automatic importation or web service, Librex will always manage your content in the same way. All your users have to do is enter the document type and metadata and then your configured business rules will decide how this content should be stored in Alfresco. Whether you receive your customer PO as a paper document, by fax or by e-mail, it will always be stored in the same way in Alfresco.

Also, to optimize the capture process, Librex allows you to do optical character recognition or barcode reading to extract the metadata from your document. In addition, you can use our web services interface or build your own script in Java for your specific integration requirements. For example, you could read a customer ID on a barcode and then go interrogate an external system to complete your indexation and validate your metadata.

This way, you have high value documents that are well structured and easy to find in Alfresco, whatever is the source of your content.
