HOPKINTON, Mass., Jan. 23 /-- EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced its newest distributed document capture solution that offers dramatic advances in Web-based distributed capture -- EMC Captiva eInput 2.0. Key to streamlining paper-based transactional processes, eInput 2.0 makes the scanning and indexing of paper documents from remote offices faster and easier -- automating the classification of documents, extraction of data, and validation of information directly from a Web browser. eInput 2.0's market-leading remote capture capabilities are key enabling technologies, helping companies realize more seamless, effective, and responsive distributed operations.

Captiva eInput works as an extension to the Captiva InputAccel platform, delivering best-in-class distributed capture with the EMC Documentum platform to address transactional content management (TCM) applications, such as loan processing, insurance claim processing, invoice processing, new account enrollment, and case management. In addition, working with InputAccel, eInput integrates with a wide array of back-end systems, including enterprise content management (ECM), business process management (BPM), and other enterprise applications. Together, these solutions enable organizations to easily add distributed capture capabilities to their existing business processes and information infrastructure.

"When used in conjunction with EMC's InputAccel capture solution, Captiva can effectively accelerate the capture of paper documents from remote locations and reduce or eliminate manual handling and delivery service costs between remote offices and centralized processing," said Chris Preston, Senior Director, Content Management and Archiving, EMC Corporation. "The end result delivers true competitive advantage for our customers by providing global reach for transactional-based process that is fully integrated with centralized back office processes -- substantially reducing costs, improving user productivity, and accelerating business processes."

Key to Captiva eInput 2.0's market-leading and award-winning technology is several features to make scanning of paper documents faster and easier:
-- Intuitive thin client interface can be easily deployed to remote offices, enabling scanning and indexing of documents directly at the source
-- Scanning and indexing documents at remote/branch sites eliminates the expense of mailing documents and accelerates both capture and the processing of work
-- Point-and-click setup of field level and database validation capabilities provides a way to configure integration environments and ensures information is accurately captured the first time
-- The ability to scan and index documents while offline enables document capture to occur in disconnected environments
-- Supports automated indexing technologies such as barcode and/or OCR zonal recognition, accelerating the speed and the accuracy of data capture and business processes
-- Supports automated document sorting, such as separator sheets, barcodes, and patch codes, allowing quick organization of documents without manual intervention
-- Integrates with Captiva InputAccel and Dispatcher technologies, enabling organizations to further automate the classification, extraction, and delivery of content to any enterprise content management system and/or business application
