Converting image files to searchable PDFs is now more efficient for NetDocuments users. DocsCorp President and Co-Founder Dean Sappey explains how the new built-in functionality works.
In May 2018 we announced that NetDocuments would be delivering OCR and image compression functionality to its customers using our patented contentCrawler cloud technology. The most exciting part? It would be offered as a secure cloud-to-cloud service with no need for any on-premises software to be installed – a big part of NetDocuments’ mantra to be Cloud First, Cloud Only. Now, OCR’ing cabinets in NetDocuments is as simple as turning on a light switch.
Use NetDocuments OCR to convert image files to searchable PDFs
When switched on, NetDocuments OCR monitors all incoming images and image-based PDFs and automatically converts them to searchable PDFs. Afterward, lawyers and legal professionals will be able to search cabinets and folders to find previously non-searchable files.
NetDocuments OCR, like contentCrawler cloud services, processes both new files added to NetDocuments (Active Monitoring Report) as well as legacy files already profiled (Backlog Report). IT Administrators can see progress at a glance using the Dashboard view.
Why OCR is so vital to NetDocuments customers
Firms are investing in NetDocuments to ensure staff has access to all the information they need at their fingertips. After all, better information means better-informed decisions. Yet, research shows that up to 30% of documents stored in a repository like NetDocuments can be image-based files invisible to search. Invisible files mean hours lost searching for documents that cannot be found, and large amounts of money spent on storing documents that cannot be accessed. NetDocuments customers now have advanced OCR processing built-in to make managing these risks as easy as possible.
