Microsoft SharePoint is a hot topic that is finding its way into many companies – as a departmental tool and increasingly as an enterprise-wide deployment.  Adlib’s solutions fill a gap in SharePoint’s capabilities, making automatable document transformation services available within SharePoint. Content transformation is an important part of a document management or ECM solution, getting content into the right format at the right time, and now it’s easy to do with Express.

Some examples of where businesses have benefited from automated document conversion within SharePoint are:

  • Automatically converting CAD drawings to PDF and storing them in a library where they can be accessed by partners and employees.  PDF versions can be viewed without CAD software and their small size makes them more easily accessed by staff in remote locations
  • Automating the publishing of Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) manuals for regulated industries. PDF renditions of approved manuals are created for reference by manufacturing staff, with appropriate controls printed on them such as “printed by”, “printed-on date” and “expiry date”
  • As part of an invoice approval and payment process, scanned invoices are automatically converted to searchable PDF using Optical Character recognition (OCR). As more companies deploy SharePoint to automate their business processes, there are increasingly varied examples of the ways that automated document conversion can be used to reduce costs and streamline business processes.
