OpenText Captiva gets enhanced automation and scalability

Captiva 7.7 has been released

For many enterprise customers, successful digital transformation means moving capture into a robust platform that can meet existing, and future, capture needs—while providing an efficient and largely automated experience for end users.

For the new release of OpenText Captiva 7.7, the focus has been on expanding the ease of use across the enterprise and enhancing the ability of our capture platform to be fully integrated into an enterprise information management strategy. For those new to Captiva, it excels at capturing and processing documents from a variety of sources, including scanners, fax servers, email servers, file systems, web services, and via RESTful web services. With Captiva 7.7, OpenText continues to focus on building intelligent products that meet enterprise capture needs.

Captiva is a scalable solution that has the ability to use multiple servers to manage resources, meaning it can process large amounts of data from across your enterprise. It also handles multiple languages and system locale settings.

As Captiva continues to advance to meet customer needs, there are four elements of particular importance in this new release:

Capture via web: The new Web Client can now be used to execute tasks assigned from a central Captiva Server. We developed this remote or distributed client based on feedback from many customers who require an easy-to-use, intuitive, and ergonomic UI in a web client.

Upgraded automation: In this release, both OpenText Character Recognition and OpenText Document Recognition have been integrated into Captiva. This expands the tools available to identify and sort batches of documents. Improved handwriting recognition reduces manual input.

Integrated and scalable: Captiva 7.7 features an improved REST-based integration to OpenText Content Server platform, as well as an enhanced API available to third-party ISVs for integration. Captiva 7.7 also includes CMIS output for out-of-the-box integration with content management platforms that support the industry standard.

Centralized Administration: Integral in order to support the various processes, locations, and documents in a way consistent with enterprise governance policies. Permissions and batch selections for the Web Client users can be managed through the central server application and pushed out to the web client. Along with central permissions, enhanced web security allows for distributed capture to speed deployment and expansion across multiple geographic sites from a central management location.

OpenText Captiva 7.7 provides a fully featured capture platform that simplifies capture through best-of-breed automation and scalability that can be deployed in multiple ways—including Azure and the OpenText Cloud—to ensure you have the platform that meets your needs.
