Alfresco & Micro Strategies Introduce Alfresco Application Extension for High-Volume Document Capture
Provides integration with Kofax Capture to enable high-end document scanning and capture
LONDON, UK — June 22, 2009 – Alfresco Software, Inc., the leader in open source enterprise content management (ECM), and partner Micro Strategies Inc., today announced the availability of an Alfresco Application Extension, the Alfresco Kofax Release Script, which provides integration with Kofax Capture to enable high-end document scanning and capture.
As requirements for companies to process paper documentation show no sign of diminishing, organizations are seeking more efficient methods of handling paper-based forms and documents. The Alfresco Kofax Release Script allows companies using Kofax Capture to scan and process large volumes of paper-based forms and documents, which are then stored in a central Alfresco repository.
Micro Strategies’ Alfresco Kofax Release Script enables data to be extracted from paper forms which the Alfresco ECM system uses to manage documents through their lifecycle. This key data drives workflows and ensures the right departments have access to the content.
The combination of Alfresco Open Source ECM and Kofax Capture will allow companies to address their paper document processing requirements more efficiently while dramatically reducing costs.
