Rapidly add properties to documents in Alfresco so you can find them later.

Let us help you with the clutter

Clearing your desk may sound delightful, but turning a paper mound of documents into an electronic mound of documents is not a complete solution if it is still difficult to find the information you need once it is digitized. And maybe you know your organization scheme well, perhaps other departments or even your team members don’t, and therefore they can’t find the information even though it’s in Alfresco somewhere.

By adding additional properties to the electronic copies, documents such as invoices, receipts, or purchase orders can be easily found by you and your teams using the information you care about the most.

Each document type can be tailored to have their own fields and security properties. Whether scanned, via email, or through a shared network, it doesn’t matter how a document is loaded into Alfresco, adding properties helps you stay organized.

Document Indexing Module – No dual screen? No problem!

Content categorizing makes it easier to find and access your Alfresco documents, but doing so is a manual task that requires its fair share of time and resources.

Our Document Indexing Module for Alfresco can reduce the number of clicks needed to add properties, or metadata to your Alfresco documents. This module, which improves existing out-of-the-box functionality, displays the document preview and property editing view side-by-side so data can be easily referenced and populated.

Save time and reduce the risk of (often costly) errors by eliminating the need to toggle between windows.

Review Quickly and Painlessly

There really is no list – any scanner that can scan to a network folder will work. We leverage out-of-the-box Alfresco functionality to watch that folder and automatically ingest the documents into the appropriate indexing queue. If you are looking at a high-volume scanning use case, then we should talk about other tools in our toolbox such as Ephesoft Transact.

Once we have a license agreement in place you will be provided with both installation AMPs, as well as a sample AMP and configuration guide for setting up your indexing queues. Professional services are also available if desired for an additional fee.

The Document Indexing Module places no limitations on the types of file formats that may be processed. Anything that the Alfresco previewer you are using supports will be supported by the module.
