BancTec, the Dallas-based high-volume document capture specialist, has introduced some upgrades to its CenterVision Enterprise Capture platform. I did a fairly comprehensive white paper on this product that you can find on the CenterVision Website site under “Related Documents.” BancTec recently announced an implementation of CenterVision with the Public Works and Government Services Canada for processing “approximately 6 million paper, fax and electronic documents per year for the country’s federal employee pension plan, Superannuation Pension Transition and Client Services.” (see press release).
CenterVision can act a dashboard for managing high-volume and distributed document and data capture operations. I’m assuming the product maintains its open architecture for working with other vendors’ data capture products, but BancTec has also introduced some more of its own data capture capabilities into the platform- specifically for invoice processing and better key entry. It has also introduced some better controls for tracking incoming mail.
