What makes it Innovative? With its thin-client architecture, ILINX Capture can be utilized anywhere, as long as the user has Internet access. The time required for deployment and basic operation training is a fraction of traditional scanning software. With no page count licensing, and fewer required IT resources, ILINX quickly provides ROI for users.

ILINX Capture’s easy-to-use interface and workflows, allow users to leverage this technology for an endless number of business processes, both small and complex. Because it can be deployed to literally everyone within an organization, whether in one or one hundred disparate locations, ILINX provides a channel for Information to flow efficiently through the enterprise. Traditional capture solutions tend to create a limited, controlled point of entry, to which documents are transported, using considerable resources including shipping costs and time. ILINX Capture allows organizations to distribute capture points of entry throughout the enterprise, creating multiple onramps that speed transactions. Organizations benefit through reduced or eliminate costs associated with transportation, duplication, distribution, retrieval and labor. Additionally, distributed capture can enhance customer service, reduce the number of lost or misdirected documents and enable responsible environmental practices in regards to paper and energy usage.

Because deployment and user competency is so efficient with ILINX Capture, multiple user communities can leverage the infrastructure quickly. Please see the below table of a time and price comparison.

Many Enterprise Class features are included for managing large sophisticated capture processes, such as process templates. It has the ability to import and export processes between testing, development and production capture systems.

ILINX Capture is completely extensible through its Server eXtension architecture, allowing third-party developers and integrators to create fully plug-able processing modules. The ILINX Development Team uses this architecture in-house to develop modules including Barcode Recognition, OCR/ICR, PDF Conversion and many others.
