As experts in Digital Transformation, we are continuously looking for the best of breed platforms that enable us to deliver the finest enterprise class solutions. Which is why we are excited by the latest offering from our technology partner Ephesoft. Ephesoft Enterprise 4.0 converts static documents into usable, dynamic information to fuel your business processes. We have had access to a pre-release version of 4.0 and we have been impressed with the results. Here are the 4 main reasons you should upgrade to 4.0.   Speed There has been up to 600% increase in pages per minute processed on single page batches. This is largely due to the new workflow engine. Out goes the old JBPN workflows of 3.1 and in comes the lightweight Activiti Java-based workflow engine that provides better server utilisation, increased processing capacity and is optimised for virtual environments. This has led to workflows completing up to 70% faster than those running on JPBN. 4 Reasons to Upgrade to Ephesoft - Image 1   Improved user Interface One of my criticisms of SmartCapture™ prior to 4.0 was the user experience; it often took 5, 6, 7 mouse clicks to get to the particular setting I want to change. A good example of this is the document type training. Previously you would have to generate folders, navigate to the file browser tab, copy your single page tifs in to the First, Middle, Last folder and then click on the learn files button and then ’OK’ those pesky confirmation boxes! Now you simply drag and drop a PDF to the drop area and that’s it. The new interface also makes much better use of the screen real estate which is illustrated in the two screenshots below.

The Advanced Reporting Module also features analysis grids for ad hoc reporting, what if analysis and custom reports, including integration with other reporting and content management systems.   For a free demo of the Ephesoft product, you can call us on +44 (0) 1276 415 842 or send us a message.
