NetDocuments cloud-based DMS enables firms to have productivity, efficiency, and security and compliance around their documents and email. However, firms with image-based files and scanned documents won't have full-text search capability. contentCrawler changes that by converting all image-based documents to text-searchable PDFs, which can then be indexed by NetDocuments for improved searchability across a matter, cabinet, or repository.
By finding non-searchable documents such as TIFF and scanned PDF files in NetDocuments, contentCrawler ensures ALL documents are 100% searchable and retrievable, even if attached to email messages. contentCrawler then OCRs these files, automatically profiling the resulting searchable documents directly into NetDocuments with minimal intervention.
How will it work?
contentCrawler (via Azure) and NetDocuments are cloud-based solutions, which means processing is faster and more secure since files are never downloaded to local machines. Solutions in the cloud don't require any on-premises infrastructure, meaning they are cheaper and easier to run. contentCrawler running in Microsoft Azure comes preconfigured and ready to run in Audit mode, providing insight into how much non-searchable content exists in your NetDocuments cabinets.
DocsCorp CTO and Co-Founder, Shane Barnett, explains: “Now available in the cloud via Microsoft Azure, contentCrawler integration adds an important dimension to NetDocuments, ensuring all cabinets are completely searchable so there are no “missing” documents. Also, since both solutions are cloud-based, the speed of deployment and security of the contentCrawler/NetDocuments integration is optimal. Our clients will enjoy a new degree of flexibility since contentCrawler desktop and cloud editions now both integrate with NetDocuments.”
“We’re thrilled to see DocsCorp embracing a cloud-first strategy by leveraging the Microsoft Azure platform for the contentCrawler integration with NetDocuments,” Alvin Tedjamulia, CTO at NetDocuments stated. “The rate of innovation in the cloud continues to eclipse that of on-premises or hosted on-premises solutions, and smart companies like DocsCorp are taking full advantage of this by responding to market demand and offering contentCrawler as a cloud-to-cloud integrated solution.”
