SoftTrac® Capture Suite delivers the robust functionality required in today’s increasingly complex capture environment.
As much as credit cards and digital wallets have tried to take over, checks are still a very prevalent and practical way to make payments and financial transactions. However, just because consumers and businesses are still relying on traditional, paper-based financial transactions doesn't mean that technology can't streamline deposits and improve customer satisfaction.
Analysts now see document capture as an important, growing market, however, many organizations and business leaders don’t see how it can be directly applied to deliver a range of practical benefits to the enterprise. This paper considers what motivates organizations to use capture technology, examines specific use cases and highlights some key case studies of successful document capture implementations.
Healthcare reform has made improving operational efficiency all the rage in the healthcare industry. One large healthcare network improved efficiency with an intelligent capture solution from Birmingham, AL-based ibml. The solution has enabled the network to reallocate staff, streamline document retrieval, and better safeguard sensitive provider information in its credentialing area.
The healthcare industry’s ability to streamline meaningful use and Health Information Exchange (HIE) efforts are largely based on the level of interoperability between management systems. Organizations have long been tasked with improving the accessibility of data throughout complex multi-channel workflows without sacrificing security, accuracy, time or budgets. With this natural progression of the industry’s efforts, Intelligent Capture has provided a critical bridge in accessing data held within paper medical documentation and making it available within the daily digital workflow, easing interoperability efforts and helping to facilitate an electronic industry.
There is no doubt that imaging technologies such as forms recognition and optical character recognition (OCR) have revolutionized the way companies do business, and have freed up countless man-hours from the tedious and error-prone task of data entry. However, these technologies still rely on the assumption that the data will be located in the same place on every document.
Automation is the key to a successful document workflow, and something that service bureaus must manage on a daily basis. With razor thin profit margins, business process outsourcing (BPO) organizations know all too well the importance that technology plays in developing a successful document management system and their ability to meet customer timelines and requirements.
Nearly every sizable organization on the planet has at least one customer relationship management (CRM) software system. Over the years, as these systems expand and mature, most organizations compile a wealth of customer data that can be segmented for automated, ongoing customer communications. Unfortunately, the primary form of communication is a steady stream of unsolicited emails which, over time, results in diminishing response rates and click-throughs, doing little to drive meaningful customer engagement.
Globalization, the high rate of content creation, and increasing compliance requirements have accelerated the proliferation of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technology. Managing and leveraging the ever-growing amount of content held within these repositories has become an increasing challenge to IT organizations for the last decade.
