Kofax, Alfresco team up
Alfresco, the first provider of an open source enterprise content management solution, reports it has integrated Kofax's Ascent Capture with its open source repository.
The module offers joint Alfresco and Kofax customers access to a comprehensive production capture solution, including automatic document classification, data extraction and validation for both Internet-based distributed capture or centralized environments. The integration also allows documents to be captured and stored in Alfresco, enabling customers to review and approve documents for long-term archival or records management purposes.
The companies add that the integration with Ascent Capture includes automatic mapping to an Alfresco content type; generation of TIFF, PDF or OCR generated text; and the ability to apply Alfresco's advanced aspect-oriented rules engine to process captured images. The system also includes secure access to any repository regardless of location. Further, by using Alfresco's Web services API, customers can deploy Ascent Capture without any additional installation to the Alfresco repository.
