SaaS Solution for SharePoint Online OCR
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.
Aquaforest Searchlight365 is the SaaS version of our popular Searchlight solution. Searchlight365 is managed on Azure by Aquaforest with a browser interface provided to users and annual fees based on document and page volumes.
SaaS Setup Summary
We host Searchlight on an Azure VM in a Microsoft location corresponding to your SharePoint / O365 location (such as East–US or UK South).
Please note that throttling limitations might apply for large volume data traffic.
The spec of the VM corresponds to the expected size of the repository in terms of documents under management as well as the number of pages to be OCR–ed on an average day.
Searchlight SaaS includes a subscription license for Aquaforest Searchlight OCR with the same number of cores as the selected
The size of both, VM and Searchlight license, can be adapted once per year.
Both parties, Aquaforest and the Client will have RDP access to the VM for the scheduling and monitoring of Searchlight.
Please assist with selecting the best–suited SaaS package by providing the following data:

An Example Scenario of OCR Volumes
Often, Corporations have initially a high volume of documents / pages to pass through the OCR process. After this stage, all sites will be fully searchable.
Once that process is complete, the OCR volume is reduced to newly added or recently edited documents. Searchlight SaaS can be flexibly adapted to this process.
An example is shown here.
