Alfresco Takes Ephesoft Partnership to Next Level

Partnership Bundles the Industry’s Most Intelligent Document Capture Technology with the Alfresco Platform

SAN MATEO, Calif. – December 14, 2016 - Alfresco Software, the leading open-source provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Business Process Management (BPM) solutions, today announced an OEM agreement with Ephesoft, the intelligent document capture and data classification solution.

With more than 80 percent of corporate information trapped in unstructured content, Ephesoft and Alfresco have partnered to make that data actionable. The joint solution replaces inefficient paper-based operations with a highly automated flow of data and documents that improves employee productivity, service quality and regulatory compliance.

“The majority of our customers are on a journey to transform their businesses digitally.  To do this they need to be able to intelligently capture information, use it to initiate business processes, and ultimately manage that content.  Our customers have expressed interest in being able to purchase a joint Alfresco/Ephesoft solution and this OEM agreement is designed to make that easy from a procurement and support perspective.” said Bernadette Nixon, Chief Revenue Officer for Alfresco. “With this offering, customers can now capture data from documents at a fraction of the cost."

The Alfresco with Ephesoft solution enables customers to drive intelligent and dynamic business processes. The solution captures documents and data from nearly any source using world-class OCR capabilities, then automatically classifies and processes files by extracting meaningful data. This information will make documents easier to find, actionable and used to initiate business processes based on content type or key document information.

“We have partnered with Alfresco for several years to deliver greater value to our joint customers," said Don Field, Ephesoft’s CEO. “Businesses will ultimately save labor, cost and time, by coupling Ephesoft’s ability to extract meaningful data from documents no matter the format, with Alfresco’s open approach to optimizing content and business process management.”

Like Alfresco, Ephesoft is built on an open source platform. It is the only document capture and extraction system to employ RESTful APIs, which makes it easy to integrate with 3rd party systems like ERP, CRM and other back office applications.
