Imagine how much more efficient you would be you had a search engine that could immediately provide you with access to business documents stored in your file cabinets or throughout your various business applications.  If you could attach AP Vouchers to the vendor invoices you receive or what if you had a system that automatically routed month-end financial or sales reports to management?  How much would you save on postage if you could automatically send invoices to customers via fax or email with the simple push of a button or capture in-bound faxes and automatically forward them to employees via email?

This can be your reality if you deploy ASG-Cypress, an enterprise-class document management solution.  ASG-Cypress is an affordable solution to help customers manage data while eliminating file cabinets and manual paper-based processes throughout their businesses.

The ASG-Cypress™ Suite is a modular, integrated document assembly and delivery system that significantly enhances the management, accessibility, analysis, and distribution of content throughout an enterprise. This system can be rapidly deployed and requires little or no user training. The ASG-Cypress™ Suite can capture and store any document, regardless of format, application, or environment in which it was created. Optionally, any metadata, rights, permissions, and privileges available from the application can be included with the document. Once captured, documents or individual pages can be easily searched, retrieved, assembled, and delivered by the ASG-Cypress™ Suite.

With powerful, secure DocuVault® repository technology as its foundation, the ASG-Cypress™ Suite specifically addresses the following enterprise requirements:

Report Distribution – identifies, splits, bundles, and delivers information captured from enterprise reports, documents, or scanned images. Reports are distributed to the appropriate individuals, groups, or devices, including electronic mailboxes, portals, printers, systems, or storage devices.

Output Management – provides centralized management of document delivery to all output devices in the organization. Processes and requests related to document delivery and all output devices are monitored and controlled from a single user interface. This includes job queues, stock assignments, historical logs, requests to suspend/resume printing or reroute output, and more.

Web and Enterprise Document Delivery – makes documents and reports immediately, yet securely, accessible from any Web browser and uniquely preserves document integrity by not converting them to traditional Web formats. The solution does not require the installation of special viewing devices, and organizations do not have to maintain a dedicated Web server or utilize specific portal technology.

Forms Management and Document Enhancement – creates electronic forms overlays using any Windows-based application and automatically applies them to the output. The solution also provides the necessary flexibility to place and format report data within a page.

Archive, Search, and Retrieval – supports three different indexing schemas: system indices, such as document title and creator, etc.; customized indices, of which the organization can create an unlimited number based on its unique business practices; and full-text indexing, a methodology that ensures all relevant pages are returned, according to a user’s needs.

Imaging – enables addition of non-digital documents to the enterprise knowledge base. The ability to capture optical character recognition (OCR) zonal, intelligent character recognition (ICR) zonal, and full text data, as well as metadata, ensures maximum flexibility. After the data is captured, pages can be automatically routed based on their content.

Content Processing – the ASG-Cypress Content Processing Facility brings all enterprise content together by automatically delivering information needed to streamline business processes and increase employee effectiveness. Any output, regardless of its application or platform of origin, can be automatically assembled, enhanced, collated, sequenced, and delivered to any destination, enabling new, faster, and cost-effective business processes.
