NEW YORK - May 20, 2015
Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced enhancements for Infor Document Management, in partnership with Ephesoft, to help customers work more efficiently by automatically connecting documents to core business processes within Infor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions. Available exclusively to Infor Document Management users, the latest capabilities powered by Ephesoft are currently offered on-premises. Infor plans another release by the end of 2015 to provide this advanced document capture functionality to Infor CloudSuite™ customers who are serviced through Infor's collaboration with Amazon Web Services. With faster, easier access to critical business information such as customer invoices, organizations across numerous industries are positioned to speed daily tasks and optimize decision-making by providing the ability to retrieve supporting documentation directly from the application in use.
"Whether Infor develops the functionality or we collaborate with another industry leader, Infor is committed to providing complete, end-to-end applications for customers across all of our target industries," said Mark Humphlett, industry and solution strategy director, Infor. "The need to store and access documents in a reliable, efficient manner is required by everyone, from global manufacturers to single-site distributors. Infor Document Management provides a cost-effective option to fulfill this requirement, helping customers enable audit-readiness and enhance decision-making by storing information in an aggregated, easily accessible format."
Infor Document Management currently works alongside Infor M3, Infor LN, Infor Optiva and Infor SunSystems, allowing users in-context access to a centralized document repository without the need to open a separate application. The latest version is compatible with Infor ION®, which enables real-time alerts to additional Infor or third-party applications when document changes are made. Through collaboration with Ephesoft, Infor Document Management is also equipped with both optical character recognition (OCR) and intelligent character recognition (ICR) capabilities to enable more complete document capture processes. This allows machine-printed and hand-printed text to be converted into digital formats, thereby diversifying the type of information that can be utilized through the application.
"Through this partnership, we are adding Ephesoft's powerful document classification and data extraction functionality to Infor's document management application to help customers automatically capture content that is vital to their business," said Don Field, chief executive officer, Ephesoft. "By eliminating the need to manually sort documents and enter information, organizations benefit from a reduction in errors, faster daily operations and more auditable business processes, promoting greater overall consistency and efficiency."
