KnowledgeLake Capture Server for SharePoint

KnowledgeLake Capture Server adds powerful server-based batch management capabilities to KnowledgeLake Connect and KnowledgeLake Capture. It provides the ability to scan and save documents to Microsoft SharePoint using office copiers, multifunction devices, fax servers and network scanners. Flexible document manipulation such as web-based indexing, OCR and pre-release document conversion, are enabled by server-based process paths.

KnowledgeLake Capture Server allows for administration and monitoring of branch office scanning, using a decentralized scanning function with a zero-touch install.  Client applications are freed for additional capture activities while the server processes released documents. This makes KnowledgeLake Capture Server a powerful, yet cost effective way to add SharePoint scanning capability to any network capture device.

Server Side Processing!

Great product! I love the ease and ability to process our scanned images prior to releasing to SharePoint. And this procesisng can be done server side not on the scan station. We make our TIFFs full-text OCRd images. That's out-of-the-box functionallity. We also wrote a custom step to release to particular libraries based on metadata values. Customization was easy and robust.

Too many bugs, DO NOT BUY

Knowledgelake website makes my google chrome crash, funny. Their software writers obviously do not test their own product.

Product Reviews

Pros
Version 6.0 OCR's pretty fast when it works
Cons
Will freeze with too many pages. Newer versions DO NOT WORK. They take 20 minutes to OCR and send 200 pages. Version 6 takes two minutes.

Very Powerful

I worked on an implementation that helped to migrate from a proprietary Unix based system to KnowledgeLake's Capture Server and Imaging solutions. We initially implemented about 15 content types half of which were scanned images and half which were brought in electronically from an ERP system. Indexing and autoindexing was very powerful.

Once implemented about 2k documents a day were being added to the system, with no signs of strain from the load.

When there were configuration issues, we received very good support.

In addition, our users found it very easy to learn.

Pros
