Alfresco, Ephesoft Technology Partnership
With the holiday weekend and all the fuss around the release of Office 365, a few items slipped through the cracks. One of them was from Alfresco, which has announced a technology partnership with Ephesoft, a cloud-ready capture company, so that both their products can be offered as an integrated package.
Alfresco’s (news, site) enterprise content management software brings an automated workflow element to capture processes, while at the same time improves further intelligence to documents that have been captured electronically via the use of imaging.
For its part, Ephesoft manages the document capture via scanners, email and fax to create searchable PDFs with metadata tags. As part of Ephesoft’s processing, documents are “learned’ so they can be classified and separated from other documents.
The integration between the two is based on Alfresco Enterprise 3.4 and Ephesoft Enterprise 2.2 using the industry CMIS open standard.
Both Alfresco and Ephesoft (news, site) have similar business models and neither charges initial license fees or user charges, only annual software support fees.
