RESTON, Va. and TAMPA, Fl.—June 21, 2010—AnyDoc Software, a leading provider of automated document, data capture, and classification solutions, and Appian, the global innovator in enterprise and on-demand business process management (BPM) technology, today announced that AnyDoc will develop and deliver the next generation of document processing solutions by combining AnyDoc’s industry-leading document processing technologies with the Appian BPM platform. Through the partnership, AnyDoc will leverage Appian’s 100 percent web architecture and powerful process, task, and data orchestration to help customers automate and manage the end-to-end workflow for both structured and unstructured documents and data.
“Utilizing Appian’s powerful yet easy-to-use BPM platform within our already robust product line will help our customers achieve optimal efficiency in daily tasks, and provide management teams with the tools to view the health of their organization at the department or corporate level,” said Samuel Schrage, President of AnyDoc Software. “Capturing your business processes and decision data from the time it enters your organization, monitoring its progression, and having it available immediately at a lower cost provides companies with great advantages. Real-time status of overall business processes with a highlight on exceptions, approvals, and related activities keeps executive management responsive to the pulse of the company.”
The Appian BPM Suite allows companies to be more efficient, adaptable, and effective in accomplishing business tasks through constant management and real-time monitoring. People, applications, required tasks, compliance guidelines, approvals, and more are all wrapped into a managed process that can be monitored for continuous effectiveness with real-time data, robust analytics, and reporting.
AnyDoc Software’s solutions provide companies with quick, cost-effective, and accurate tools to assimilate business data into the organization. As a data capture leader, AnyDoc utilizes their full range of products, including AnyDoc®CAPTUREit™, Infiniworx®, and the flagship OCR for AnyDoc®, to classify documents and extract data from scanned paper or imported images and data files—including e-mails and attachments. “The details are in the data,” said Schrage, “and AnyDoc is one of the best at getting to the data.” Together with Appian, AnyDoc will deliver world-class end-to-end solutions like AnyDoc®INVOICE™ BPM Suite and vertical solutions for Insurance, Healthcare, Banking and Finance and other markets.
With Appian-enabled AnyDoc solutions, incoming documents including paper, scanned images, faxes, and e-mails are automatically categorized and routed to the appropriate business unit without any presorting required. Data is captured and validated from nearly any business document, with minimal manual data entry required. The accurate data and the document images are then automatically routed to the appropriate workflow, back office information systems, and/or document management repository. For example, document exceptions can be routed according to a company’s existing business practices, and e-mail automatically triggered when follow-up or escalation is required. Auditing productivity or outstanding tasks, determining processing bottlenecks, and identifying project status is easy with a dashboard of real-time data, offering customized views depending on a user’s status or responsibilities. The result is cost savings combined with increases in productivity and data accuracy as companies efficiently and accurately distribute work-in-progress while exceptions are fast-tracked with up-to-the-minute data available at a glance.
“We are proud to partner with a well respected industry leader like AnyDoc. The combination of process and automated data capture and classification will result in significant value to the customers of these solutions,” said Marc Wilson, Vice President of Global Partnerships at Appian. “Forward-looking software vendors like AnyDoc understand the tremendous internal and customer value that can be derived from leveraging a BPM platform to enhance existing offerings and speed development of new products and services. OEM relationships such as this one are central to our growth strategy, and will bring Appian’s state-of-the-art BPM technology to a wide range of new user communities.”
