Just a short time after announcing it had acquired intelligent document recognition vendor Brainware, Lexmark announced two more software acquisitions that are being rolled into its Perceptive ECM business. The acquisitions are of Nolij, a U.S.-based document imaging and workflow specialist in the higher education market, and Australia-based ISYS, which specializes in enterprise search.
According to the press release, Nolij Transfer is “a Web-based data integration product that enables automated data matching and upload to student information systems…in enrollment services, university development and the business office.” Perceptive, of course, is already one of the leaders in marketing ECM to the higher education market. According to Scott Coons, president and CEO of Perceptive and Lexmark VP, “Nolij brings advanced system integration, unique browser based scanning and forms processing capabilities to our education customers so they can better serve their students.”
Regarding ISYS, the press release states, “ISYS enterprise search solutions deliver powerful federated search, text mining, and mobile and embedded search capabilities across a wide range of formats, languages and platforms…Its class-leading Document Filters technology is the core analytics engine at the heart of its suite. Document Filters enables users to parse, extract, analyze, load and display (in high definition) content contained in hundreds of different file types. Today, more than 16,000 enterprise organizations and many of the world’s leading IT vendors use ISYS software.
We hope to provide more details of how these products will be integrated into Perceptive’s ECM suite and Lexmark’s business in an upcoming premium issue.
