Nuance OmniPage Server 2 Delivers More Comprehensive and Powerful Document Conversion

Nuance Communications has announced OmniPage Server 2, the newest version of Nuance OmniPage Server, featuring optimizations including an enhanced user experience with flexible configuration options, API-enabled document classification, and cloud deployment options through Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

Nuance OmniPage Server 2 extends the capabilities of previous offerings, delivering an industrial-strength, reliable, fast and accurate solution for high volume document and image conversion.

According to the company, the most significant new feature in OmniPage Server 2 is the updated user interface with new simplified installation option because this enables set up on a single machine more quickly, which makes the OmniPage Server 2 accessible to new audiences. Dealers and organizations without networking or server configuration expertise can install and begin executing high-volume document conversion processes almost immediately, the company says.  Once set up, users will also benefit from the enhanced Web Conversion Client featuring an intuitive interface as they configure and run document conversion jobs.

Nuance says that the OmniPage Server 2’s document conversion and classification services are foundational technologies for robotic process automation applications. Document-based information must be converted to machine-readable formats and be identified by "type" to perform advanced analytics. Utilizing OmniPage Server, organizations can drive analytics, streamline document-based business processes and accurately deliver information to an unlimited number of folders and subfolders. “Folder watching” capabilities can also detect PDF and image files and automatically designate them for conversion, bringing greater efficiencies to the end-to-end document conversion workflow.

According to Tracey Mustacchio, senior vice president of product & marketing, Nuance Document Imaging, the new installation experience allows an easy setup experience for dealers and end users, while the integration with the document classifier API supports greater efficiencies to the document conversion and classification process. Moreover, said Mustacchio, the ability to host the solution in the cloud will give users greater flexibility and scalability to support their document conversion needs. 

Nuance OmniPage Server 2 converts PDFs and other popular file types into searchable PDFs and other editable files. Other updates include improved OCR accuracy and speed, support for right-to-left languages, such as Arabic and Hebrew, and enhanced Intelligent Workflow Runner, which when combined with the Workflow Designer can easily create more complex workflows.
