ABBYY Solutions for Paper to SharePoint

Turn SharePoint into a true DMS.

Optimize paper-driven business processes
and deliver documents and metadata
for sharing and accessing across the enterprise.

Organizations are turning to advanced business platforms such as Microsoft® SharePoint® to improve knowledge sharing and collaborative work. Storing digital files in SharePoint is an easy task, but in order to elevate it to a full-fledged Document Management System, printed documents including contracts and business correspondence must also be available for electronic search and retrieval.

ABBYY Solutions enable SharePoint users across an organization to scan and index business documents. Printed documents can be easily scanned, turned into searchable electronic files, enriched by metadata and saved directly in the appropriate SharePoint document libraries.

ABBYY Helps Unlock the Potential of SharePoint for one National Park Authority

The New Forest National Park Authority (NFNPA) was set up to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the Park. For many years, the NFNPA had a document management system (DMS) for its Planning Department, but no proper document archiving mechanism for the rest of the Authority. Recently the decision was made to supply the entire organization with a way to store files digitally for easy search and retrieval.
