Now you can export processed documents from Athento’s document capture module to Alfresco Enterprise and Community editions.Thanks to Athento’s document capture module -Athento Smart Engine-, auto-classified documents can be sent to Alfresco with their metadata already extracted.
San Jose, CA. February 10, 2016
Athento Smart Engine, the document capture software by Athento, is now integrated with Alfresco. The integration, available for versions 5 and up, will provide Alfresco ECM software users with a data capturing application for carrying out automatic operations related to digital document handling, including dividing batches, automatically classifying documents, OCR and data extraction.
Integration is carried out using CMIS 1.0, which lets users export documents and data from Athento to the Alfresco platform.
According to the Athento CEO Jose Luis de la Rosa,
“The benefit of using CMIS as the vehicle for integration is that it allows integration to become easily configurable and can potentially be used for any version of Alfresco that supports CMIS”
Athento’s Documentation Center now provides information on how to integrate Athento and Alfresco. The integration between the two platforms means storage folders and routes in Alfresco can be dynamically defined, according to metadata values or document types. It also allows data extracted from documents to be sent to Alfresco.
In addition to the CMIS integration, Athento Smart Engine has an API that provides access to its features as services. Athento SE is available as a cloud service and also for on-premise deployments.
Athento incorporates cutting-edge technology such as Machine Learning, Semantics and Image Processing to automate processes related to working with document capture, document management, storage and all those operations needed to cover the complete life cycle of documents. Athento currently works with more than 100 clients in Europe, Africa and the Americas. It also works with a wide-reaching network of authorized partners, and is the product that has been chosen by Barclaycard, Reed Elsevier, Leroy Merlin, Yellow Pages and the Spanish General Traffic Directorate to manage documents.
