Smart Seek example extraction

Umango Extract is a batch scanning application that delivers speed and efficiency in scanning, naming, indexing and storing of documents.

Documents can be scanned from supported multifunction devices or scanners, or imported from network folders. Data can be extracted and profiled at supported multifunction devices or at a desktop PC. Once captured, the data and document can be routed into a range of office products.

Using data extraction tools such as zonal OMR, zonal OCR, barcodes, keywords and lasso OCR, documents are quickly indexed, named and stored ready for future retrieval. Umango can create a directory tree based on document index values and export in numerous formats including TIFF, PDF, PDF/A or text searchable PDF/A.

If you have a database or document management system Umango can export the document indexing data directly or you may wish to export to one of our standard connectors or export methods.

The application has been specifically designed to be easy to deploy and use across virtually any document scanner or multi function device.

Umango boasts an impressive feature list to deliver flexibility and broad functionality for even the most unusual requirements.
