Infor and Ephesoft have partnered to enhance Infor Document Management to help customers work more efficiently by automatically connecting documents to core business processes within Infor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions.
The company said the latest capabilities which are available for Infor Document Management users are powered by Ephesoft and offered on-premises.
By the end of 2015, Infor plans to provide this advanced document capture functionality to Infor CloudSuite customers who are serviced through Infor’s collaboration with Amazon Web Services.
Infor Document Management currently works alongside Infor M3, Infor LN,Infor Optiva and Infor SunSystems.
According to the company, Infor Document Management allows users in-context access to a centralized document repository without the need to open a separate application.
Additionally, 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.
With this collaboration, Infor Document Management is also equipped with optical character recognition (OCR) and intelligent character recognition (ICR). The machine-printed and hand-printed text can be converted into digital formats.
“Infor Document Management provides a cost-effective option to fulfill the requirement, helping customers enable audit-readiness and enhance decision-making by storing information in an aggregated, easily accessible format,” said Mark Humphlett, industry and solution strategy director, Infor.
“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.
Last month, Ephesoft released version 4.0 of Ephesoft Enterprise, the company’s robust document classification and data extraction program for corporate and government document capture applications.
Last year in October, Ephesoft partnered with Nokavision Software to unlock the potential of Smart Capture Cloud solutions for the Benelux region.
Infor assisted its hospitality customers to ensure better guest experience and launched latest Cloud solutions Hospitality Management Solution 3.7.1 in March.
