NetDocuments launches cloud OCR service backed by DocsCorp contentCrawler integration

NetDocuments today (16 May) announced an exclusive integration with DocsCorp on the launch of NetDocuments Optical Character Recognition (OCR) – an OCR and image compression technology delivered as a secured cloud-to-cloud service without requiring on-premises software to be installed.  NetDocuments OCR is powered by DocsCorp contentCrawler, its cloud-based content analysis technology.
NetDocuments OCR will monitor all incoming images and image-based PDFs and automatically convert to searchable PDF and full-text index all the content.  NetDocuments OCR will be widely available to customers starting in July, 2018.  
“The addition of OCR and image compression to the NetDocuments platform will empower our lawyers and legal professionals to search and find all documents and images that meet the search criteria,” said Phil Casale (pictured), CIO of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney. “This functionality is not only a welcome addition, but really demonstrates the value that a technology partnership, in this case between NetDocuments and DocsCorp, provides us as a mutual customer.”
Rick Shutts, CIO at Harris Beach said: “The fact that both NetDocuments and DocsCorp are building this cloud-to-cloud integration as part of the overall DMS platform greatly enhances our technology investment. We will now have access to this new functionality with direct, single-source support. It’s all running smoothly under the surface. This new product highlights the power of cloud-to-cloud integrations and is validation of NetDocuments’ commitment to delivering on product innovation that adds value to their customer base.” 
Dean Sappey, President, DocsCorp, said: “We have had a proud 12-year partnership integrating our suite of applications into the NetDocuments platform. We are very grateful for the confidence NetDocuments has shown in our technologies and that it will use our Microsoft Azure-hosted cloud application as the core technology for providing OCR and image compression capabilities to its customers. This agreement underscores our global reputation for quality, innovation, and service.”
