FRISCO, TX – September 24, 2008 – Daybreak Intellectual Capital Solutions, Inc., a provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software and consulting services, today announced eCapture Express, a new addition to Daybreak's eCapture SuiteTM of distributed document capture and delivery solutions. eCapture Express is targeted at workgroup or departmental deployments and establishes a new level of simplicity with its client-only architecture and subscription pricing model.
A key differentiator of eCapture Express is its powerful capability to capture and deliver both scanned and electronic documents direct to a wide range of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems using a client-only architecture. Single step operation allows metadata and captured content to be deposited into the ECM repository with the press of a button or mouse click. Since there is no server component to install and manage, installation and set up is greatly simplified and can be performed directly by the user without professional services involvement. The client-only eCapture Express product is targeted at workgroup and departmental deployments, and complements Daybreak's client-server version of eCapture Suite for enterprise applications.
eCapture Express introduces a subscription pricing model to the document capture industry, reducing initial software license expense and cost of operation. eCapture Express is licensed via a monthly fee per user, billed annually, with no page count charges or limitations. There is no annual maintenance fee and users get access to software upgrades as they are released. Current pricing is set at $35 per user/month and includes plug-ins for Documentum, SharePoint, ApplicationXtender, and eRoom.
"eCapture Express raises the bar in both price-performance, ease of use, cost of acquisition and cost of operation. Our customers have been telling us how much they value the features of eCapture Suite and wanted those same features in a client-only desktop model for ease of deployment. We listened and even went a step further to make the product easier to acquire through a subscription pricing model" said Rusty James, Daybreak's Vice President of Worldwide Sales.
Rusty continued, "eCapture Express also opens the door to a wider range of reseller partners and makes it easier for all partners from VARs to ISVs to Office Equipment Dealers by utilizing a client-only architecture and eliminating the server application. Implementation can be done through a download direct to the desktop. The document capture and delivery application runs completely on the desktop with full functionality."
eCapture Express retains all of the same functionality as the client-server version of the product. The heart of the solution is the eCapture LaunchPad tabbed interface that integrates directly into target ECM repositories out of the box without the need for any special export modules or custom release scripts. Users simply set up their document profiles, which define the destination repository and document metadata, and can start capturing and sending content immediately into their repositories without toggling back and forth between multiple applications. The solution supports both paper and electronic content for metadata tagging and repository delivery, enabling users to remain in one interface regardless of the destination repository.
Key solution features include
- Easy deployment and operation
- Automatic metadata capture
- Zonal and full text OCR
- TIFF, PDF, sPDF, and Native file format support
- Bar code recognition
- Configurable capture profiles for different document types
- Batch scheduling to optimize network bandwidth
- Secure communications environment
eCapture Express is available now and ready for deployment.
