What is DocuNECT?

Portford's DocuNECT is a solution designed to connect business users with information locked in documents. To achieve this, DocuNECT maps the document lifecycle to capture the document, extract the appropriate data, and distribute the data/document to third party business applications, and/or workflow and data specifications.

Organizations have invested in document and data platforms to help executives, managers and employees make informed decisions to help keep the business operating. As the speed of business increases this data needs to be as accurate and accessible as possible. Data can often be inaccessible to these decision making platforms as they are locked inside electronic documents that are spread across the organization on network based file-shares, local hard drives, cloud-based solutions, email, secure FTP sites, legacy systems and other sources.

Managing the Document Lifecycle

Document management has been around for a long time and typically an organization has some form of document management in place. DocuNECT is designed to enhance and utilize existing document management products not necessarily replace them. DocuNECT can be used to manage all or part of a document lifecycle.


Using DocuNECT to Unlock Data

DocuNECT captures electronic documents from their source, extracts and organizes the necessary business data, and then distributes it to where the users need it. This can be third party document management systems, business applications, or DocuNECT's own document management solution. The process of capture, extraction (indexing) and distribution is defined by a DocuNECT Lifecycle Application. Different Document Lifecycle Applications can be setup to meet the different requirements.
