MetaCommunications (http://www.meta-comm.com) has announced the immediate release and availability of the Workgroups 2010 Package 162.4 upgrade. Workgroups 2010 is a collaborative workflow and project management suite that now features built-in support for third party document scanning and OCR solution.
The latest version includes usability enhancements to the Spark! browser-based document reviewer plus bug fixes and performance improvements for the Workgroups 2010 project management suite. The software includes support for most scanning and OCR solutions, including Nuance Paperport & OmniPage, SimpleSoftware’s Simple OCR, Epson Scan, eCopy PaperWorks, and Microsoft Office Document Imaging.
Once a document has been scanned, it can be picked up by Workgroups 2010, automatically indexed, and moved to the correct location on the file server. This makes all scanned documents immediately available to all Workgroups 2010 users. If scanned documents include OCR information, the text is indexed and can be used to perform ad hoc searches.
The new document scanning and OCR workflow support complements Workgroups 2010’s existing project management, project workflow automation, document review and approval, document storage management, and financial productivity management capabilities. The new document scanning and OCR workflow capabilities are included in Workgroups 2010 Package 162.4, which is available for immediate download on the MetaCommunications web site.
