HOPKINTON, Mass. – December 15, 2009 –EMC® Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced the latest advancement in EMC Captiva® InputAccel® intelligent capture solution--a powerful new graphical design tool to create and configure capture processes without any coding required, yet meeting each organization’s unique needs. Delivering a new standard in the development of enterprise capture processes, the InputAccel CaptureFlow™ Designer tool provides a drag-and-drop development environment enabling customers to rapidly build document capture processes in just a few hours, at a substantially lower cost and with less resource.
The new InputAccel CaptureFlow Designer tool, which is available today, provides system integrators, value-added resellers, IT organizations and power users the following key benefits:
A document capture process is a set of steps and instructions that defines how a document gets processed once it is ingested into Captiva. A typical series of steps include scan, image enhancement, document classification, data extraction, validation and delivery to content management systems or business applications. In many cases, a process will have conditions built in for handling image quality problems, data recognition validations, routing certain document types for review or custom steps for business rules or integration with other enterprise applications. In the past, developers were required to write Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code for these processes which could take several days depending on the complexity.
More than 100 customers and partners worldwide participated in a pre-release software program which gave them early access to InputAccel CaptureFlow Designer. Held in an early access lab on the EMC Community Network, the pre-release program gave customers and partners the opportunity to provide feedback about the product.
InputAccel CaptureFlow Designer tool is included with InputAccel. Customers using InputAccel 6 can download the graphical design tool for free on EMC Powerlink.
“This latest InputAccel advancement further underscores Captiva’s core strengths in the enterprise capture market by making document capture simpler even for the most complex processes. With a more modern tool that supports drag and drop, the new InputAccel CaptureFlow Designer is easy to use and does not require any custom code. This enables companies to be agile and do more with less.”
