Over the past few months, we’ve been working to make Athento and all of its smart capture software features capable of understanding your documents. :)
Our mission has been to get document capture to stop being a matter of code, as is the case with the best-known applications on the market, and to get you to enjoy all of the power of a solution that can work in enterprise environments, but with the simplicity that’s a characteristic of Athento.
In the near future, we’ll have a trial version that you’ll be able to download and try.
For the time being, I’ll be giving you little hints about all of the functionality of the new version.Faceted Searchesin the Athento style
For those of you who don’t know what a faceted search is, here’s a short explanation. A faceted search is a search in which you can link various different searches. For example:
- The document was created by John Doe.
- The name of the document is “Document by John Doe”
A faceted search allows us to conduct one single search which includes all of these criteria.
Since a faceted search is a search that can include a lot of metadata, the forms for this type of search are typically fairly long, since you’ve got to look in the form for the fields that you want to look for, etc. This makes for a search that takes more time.
With this version of Athento, we’ve left behind those endless forms with facets in order to include a simple form that will help you to include the fields you actually want to look for in the search.
Let’s watch it in action:
Alejandro López, our engineer, explains that this functionality was based on Visual Search by Samuel Clay, and why it’ll benefit users:
“With this new search feature, users will be able to resolve their searches more quickly and see the results in real time, without having to wait for a web page to load. Generally, this search function will simplify the search for documents which users send to the system to be processed.”
