Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Add-On Now Available for NSi's AutoStore Application

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

The Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 allows for easy business collaboration and helps colleagues, partners, and customers to work together in new and effective ways.

Recently, Notable Solutions, Inc. or "NSi," a developer of distributed content capture and workflow solutions, announced the integration of its NSi AutoStore software with Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010.
The Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 add-on for NSi AutoStore will enable a secure method for office personnel to scan documents with an office copier and immediately deliver them into a SharePoint-based business workflow.
The NSi AutoStore is a server application that organizes the capture and secures delivery of paper and electronic documents into business applications. It has can support a wide range of brands and models of multifunction devices and network attached scanners.
In a press release, Mike Morper, vice president, marketing, NSi, said, "With NSi AutoStore, knowledge workers can leverage their existing MFD's to serve as an information on-ramp to SharePoint Server 2010."
With the integration of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 features into Notable Solutions' transactional document capture capabilities, users of SharePoint Server 2010 will be able to classify, keyword assign as well as deliver documents into their business processes directly from the front panel of an office MFD.
Company officials with NSi say that AutoStore enables efficient, secure workflow and archiving due to its server-based architecture. Many MFDs feature basic scan-to-email or scan-to-folder capabilities. However, these MFDs fall short of what's required to be an efficient, secure component of an enterprise process automation or archiving solution.
The AutoStore platform is also capable of handling anything from ad hoc scanning to complex, high-volume capture workflows, automated data extraction and integration with multiple line-of-business or archival applications. These operation are carried out from the user's MFP control panel.
In addition, the AutoStore's server-based architecture replaces scan-to-email attachments with pointers to the file's location in a repository or folder. This helps in reducing the load on email systems and networks. It also replaces random naming with structured, intuitive file naming conventions, and replaces individual device management with remote, centralized management of every MFD in the enterprise.
Furthermore, the AutoStore adds a full audit trail for security and regulatory compliance.
With AutoStore, users may also personalize their scanning, workflow and output options. They can easily build a capture workflow using the MFD's touch screen and NSi's intuitive on-screen forms. Users can also select secure delivery of scanned documents and data into more than 24 documents and content management systems.
