Ephesoft Smart Capture goes with the Flow

Ephesoft has announced the release of its new Swagger/OpenAPI-web services for Ephesoft Transact, a simplified application programming interface (API) enabling the integration of Ephesoft’s document capture solutions into any OpenAPI-compliant application such as Microsoft Flow. Formerly known as the Swagger Specification, OpenAPI is the world’s standard for defining RESTful interfaces.

This release is claimed to mark the first Swagger/OpenAPI-compliant document capture integration, making it possible for developers and non-developers alike to leverage Ephesoft Transact to classify documents and extract information via a simple web services interface. Users can now quickly add document capture functions to applications, removing the need for manual data entry or human intervention.

Ephesoft Transact is a smart document capture and extraction solution that utilizes supervised machine learning to capture, classify, extract, validate and deliver intelligence that transforms unstructured documents into actionable data.

“Our collaboration with Microsoft provided some key market insight for development of enhanced APIs.  This new Ephesoft offering enables simplified integration and capture enablement of just about any OpenAPI-compliant application, including Microsoft Flow, and you don’t have to be a developer to use this technology,” said Stephen Boals, vice president of business development, Ephesoft.

“Customers can leverage Smart Capture services in the Cloud with Azure to enhance their key document-centric workflows while improving efficiency through intelligent automation.”

The enhanced services are available to any current or prospective customer with access to Ephesoft Transact in the cloud or on-premises, and who use OpenAPI-compatible platforms, including Flow, K2 and Nintex.
