BCS’s Advanced Capture integrates Interwoven’s WorkSite MP Server software and Kofax’s Ascent Capture platform with customer application data and transactions to enable enterprises to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of capturing and organizing mission critical business information.

Industry analyst firm Forrester reported that «…the core functionality required of an ECM system is Web content management, document management, document imaging and records management.» (Market Leaders Emerging in Enterprise Content Management, Connie Moore and Robert Markham, August 15, 2003). In recent years, enterprises have faced an explosive growth in the amount of content (both electronic and non-electronic) circulating within their organizations. To ensure success in the digital world, it is imperative that businesses have the ability to leverage unstructured content from diverse sources including paper, faxes, forms and XML streams and to implement a scalable enterprise content management platform supporting business operations.

It also provides effective visibility of information subject to regulatory compliance initiatives. With BCS Advanced Capture, Interwoven users are provided with the ability to quickly and painlessly capture documents and contextual metadata, apply web navigation elements and accurately place the documents in the ECM repository. Kofax Ascent Capture can be implemented quickly, easily and flexibly, providing support for high, medium and low volume document scanning in centralized or distributed environments. Advanced Capture also works with many multi function centers to provide distributed transaction capture across the enterprise.

Upon arrival to the Interwoven repository, documents can be assigned to pre-defined workflows and routed to appropriate business processes, thereby enabling appropriate visibility of content across the enterprise. The bottom line is that users can lower the cost of document capture, and increase the efficiency and accuracy of their content and associated approval processes.
