Anacomp Leverages Legacy, Infrastructure and Alliances to Offer Hosted Information Capture Services
High-Value, Transaction-Oriented Solutions Help Customers Unlock the Maximum Value from Document-Centric Business Processes
BOSTON, March 4 /-- 2008 AIIM EXPOSITION & CONFERENCE, BOSTON CONVENTION AND EXHIBITION CENTER -- Anacomp(R) Inc., a leading business process solutions company, today announced the availability of hosted enterprise information capture services that leverage its core docHarbor(R) on-demand business platform and document repository, its renowned dedication to customer service, and alliances with leading document capture software providers such as EMC(R) Corporation, the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, and Kofax(R), a global leader of intelligent capture and exchange solutions. The announcement comes at the start of the 2008 AIIM International Exposition & Conference, taking place this week at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Owners of one of the world's largest document repositories, Anacomp has a rich legacy of transforming its customers' paper documents and electronic data into content that is delivered in various media -- the Web, CDs, tape, microfilm, microfiche, etc. -- and used in support of active business applications or for archival purposes. Through the integration of EMC and Kofax solutions with its own docHarbor platform, Anacomp is able to significantly extend the benefits it offers its customers through higher value, transaction-oriented document capture services that support the day-forward capture of incoming documents. The services enable users to greatly expand the benefit they derive from their scanned documents, and unlock the maximum value from their document-centric business processes.
"Offering hosted capture services leveraging our 40 years of information processing experience, our robust online repository and our partner capture portfolios represents a natural evolution in meeting the needs of our customers and expanding the value they obtain from our solutions," said Wayne Ford, Anacomp's Senior Vice President of Marketing, Channels, and Strategic Alliances. "Capture is a critical enabler within our solutions stack, as it provides the on-ramp to more advanced document-centric business process services. On top of these enterprise information capture services, we look forward to continuing the development of our docHarbor on-demand business process platform to offer application-specific capture software as a service (SaaS)."
Designed for rapid deployment and production capability, Anacomp's hosted capture services are available via a web-browser and require minimal client personnel, and no server installations, software downloads or additional up- front capital expenditures. Offered services include document preparation, scanning, indexing and conversion, intelligent document recognition (IDR), advanced data extraction, multiple retrieval options and data integration and delivery into enterprise systems (e.g. ERP, ECM, A/P, etc.) for day-forward processing or for archival purposes. Anacomp's capture solutions allow customers to significantly accelerate their business processes, reduce operating costs, increase information quality, improve customer service and help enable regulatory compliance.
"Anacomp is designing its capture offerings to serve those companies who desire the cost savings, faster implementations and minimal IT involvement offered by hosted on-demand services," said Harvey Spencer, President of Harvey Spencer Associates and a leading analyst of the document capture and imaging spaces. "The electronic document capture realm continues to grow at approximately 16% annually, and enterprise firms consider capture a strategic application for managing the mission-critical, incoming paper transactions and correspondence necessary for running their businesses."
Anacomp leverages its own technology and the world-class document imaging, data extraction, and IDR technologies of strategic alliance partners like Kofax, EMC and IBML, a leading provider of intelligent scanning solutions. "These advanced image and data capture technologies allow us to not only rapidly ingest millions of documents a week in a backfile application, but to efficiently extract the key information from those documents that are driving critical, day-forward business processes," added Ford. "We can now offer unique, value-added human resource and finance and accounting capture solutions that complement the business processing solutions we already offer in these realms. The real value is in the data; not the document that carries it."
