Ephesoft Helps Businesses Leverage the Cloud to Meet Demand

When the going gets tough, the tough take to the cloud.

Enterprise content capture and data solution provider Ephesoft unveiled its Ephesoft Cloud HyperExtender today. The new technology enables Ephesoft Transact users to optimize their on-premise solution by more than 10x, bringing processing speeds up to 2,500 pages per minute to satisfy instances of peak demand.

An add-on application, the Cloud Hyperextender combines high-performance cloud image processing with Transact’s supervised machine learning, shifting processing intensive Optical Character Recognition (OCR) operations to the cloud once documents are captured on-premise. After processing, the documents are returned to the on-premise system for classification, extraction, validation, and export.

The solution is designed to help companies meet peak demand which “stress(es) the infrastructure for document intelligence,” the company noted in a statement. Retailers experiencing surges in invoices and credit card applications during shopping holidays and tax preparation companies managing heavy processing during tax season are among the examples of how the technology can be deployed.

“Ephesoft’s Cloud HyperExtender is bridging the gap for our customers who want to continue using their existing systems while reaping the benefits of ultra-fast processing in the cloud,” company founder and CEO Ike Kavas said. “This first-to-market offering provides the best of both worlds. As the world’s first hybrid capture microservice, this product maximizes efficiency and profitability for our customers and epitomizes our vision to lead the market to the cloud.”

The firm has hundreds of customers in more than 50 countries who rely on the company’s technology – including its Ephesoft Insight document analytics and business intelligence solution – to become more productive and efficient, as well as boost ROI.

Earning a finalist spot in the 2019 Cloud Awards Program in the Best Cloud Automation Solution category last month, Ephesoft was named a 2018 Top Workplace by the Orange County Register. Over the summer, Ephesoft was recognized as a Hot Vendor in Document and Contract Analytics, 2018, and launched its Swagger/OpenAPI-web services for Ephesoft Transact. This simplified API makes it easy to integrate Ephesoft’s document capture solutions into openAPI-compliance platforms such as Microsoft Flow.

Ephesoft has raised $15 million in funding, courtesy of a Series A round led by Mercato Partners. Founded in 2010, the company is headquartered in Irvine, California with offices in the U.K., Germany, France, Australia, Singapore, and Italy.
