Since 2001 Microsoft SharePoint has been widely adopted as set of Web-based productivity, collaboration and productivity tools, as well as a platform upon which companies can develop line-of-business applications. Over 70% of participants in a recent AIIM survey indicated that their companies currently use or have immediate plans to use SharePoint 2007/MOSS for Collaboration/workspaces and Document management (check in/check out). File share replacement, scanning/imaging, and email management applications were significantly lower priority SharePoint applications according to those surveyed. SharePoint can be used for collaboration “out-of-the-box” but many organizations struggle with leveraging the platform for managing transactional content, records, and emails with traditional capture solutions.
In response to customer demand, Portford has integrated SharePoint distribution in our award winning DocuNECT electronic capture platform. DocuNECT can automatically capture electronic files from Folders, FTPs, sFTPs, email, fax servers, and apply your business rules to distribute documents and data directly into SharePoint. DocuNECT’s standard features can be used to migrate documents from file shares to SharePoint and automatically create document libraries and document column properties based on existing folder/file naming structure. DocuNECT’s advanced capture features can be used to automatically classify document and extract the data required to instantiate a workflow in SharePoint. SharePoint customers can also leverage DocuNECT’s desktop capture tools such as the virtual print driver and the windows explorer integration allowing users to quickly capture and index electronic files.
On April 14th, Portford will be hosting a WebEx demonstration and overview of DocuNECT electronic capture for SharePoint. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how DocuNECT can turn your organization’s SharePoint Plans into reality
