Harvey Spencer presented Automate, Automate, Automate: Bridging the Gap Between Capture and Process.

Traditionally capture has been centered around automating paper based processes at the front-end of business systems and eliminating key entry. As with many of the back-end systems, it has been batch-oriented and thought of as a ‘front-end’ or ‘first-step’ separated from the processes that it feeds. But that is in a state of change and sources have been expanded substantially through the ready availability of multi-function intelligent mobile devices. Although the need for batch capture will continue, we live in a real time world with shrinking amounts of paper used to feed business processes, increasing business velocity and ever increasing demand for better, faster services. This session will explore how capture solutions are handling this, how cloud based services with scalable capture processes can leverage more element understanding and be expanded into providing effective automation for all capture processes concurrently with smoothing the transition from paper.
