    Ephesoft captures documents and then, by using OCR and its rule-based extraction technology, subsequently enriches these with important meta-information.

Seamless input management with the Ephesoft SAP integration suite

Capturing incoming documents, enriching them with metadata from SAP and transforming them into easily processable information – it's all just another day at the office for Ephesoft SAP integration suite. With the new Ephesoft suite, it is possible to process documents so that the data capture quality is improved and processing costs are reduced.

Today's requirements for automation and accuracy in detecting incoming documents make it necessary to integrate data silos, business applications and, above all, ERP systems during the acquisition process. The collation of invoices or orders usually is only based on data extracted directly from the incoming document. Often this data is not sufficient and needs to be supplemented with more information before it can be passed to downstream business processes. With the release of the Ephesoft SAP integration suite, it-novum can now automate this process for you.
