Ephesoft Announces Intelligent Capture Web Service APIs
New capability allows software providers to integrate advanced capture directly into their applications
Laguna Hills, CA – March 29, 2013 – Ephesoft Inc., the leader in providing advanced cloud-ready capture solutions, announced today that the availability of Web Service APIs to allow organizations to implement Intelligent Document Capture features within the software products that they already own. Ephesoft Web Service APIs can make repositories and business process applications Intelligent Document Recognition (IDR) enabled or help build custom Document Classification and Extraction solutions.
Key features include access to the most comprehensive IDR APIs in the industry. Ephesoft APIs can be used for Classification (Content Analysis, Barcode or layout), Extraction (Fixed Form such as OCR, ICR Extraction, Free Form Extraction or even Fuzzy Database Matching), and also provides for Batch Class management such as Exporting and importing batch classes. The Ephesoft Web Service API's use the REST Design, the most efficient way to process documents for On-premise or Cloud solutions. REST facilitates the transaction between web servers by allowing loose coupling between different services. REST also provides less bandwidth requirements compared to older technologies such as SOAP.
The Ephesoft Open Platform and support for Open Standards makes it easy for everyone to integrate and support Web Service calls and maintain them for longer product cycles. This means less ongoing maintenance costs for customers. They also allow developers to save money on deployment costs as well. Traditional APIs and toolkits require every computer to be installed with some software such as DLLs. Web Service APIs do not require any footprint on the clients or servers that are being used to place the calls to Ephesoft servers.
Ike Kavas, Ephesoft founder and CTO, commented “Ephesoft is the only company that can offer APIs for both small and very large accounts. APIs can scale horizontally, using multiple clustered Ephesoft servers, or vertically, by using hi-performance Engines, that are available out of the box. Ephesoft also offers Web Service APIs on the cloud for those customers who want to start using the APIs from day one with no hardware.”
