Searchlight OCR

Automated OCR SharePoint Solution for:

Office 365 SharePoint Windows file system

Are your documents fully searchable? Ensure they are with Aquaforest Searchlight's automated OCR for SharePoint, office365 and windows.

Aquaforest Searchlight automatically takes non-searchable Documents such as Images PDF’s, Scanned Image Files and Faxes and convert the files to fully searchable PDF format.

These types of files need to be processed with optical character recognition (OCR) technology to create a text version of the file contents which allows a searchable PDF to be created by merging the original page images with the text. This enables the file to be searched.

I believe the Searchlight product is unique and definitely a "leader" in this kind of document management workflow. The product is easy to configure and does exactly what it states it does: Automatically OCR SharePoint document libraries or Local Locations. Highly efficient, fully auditable, complete with check out & check in comments.
