Captaris Alchemy

The Alchemy document management software suite has several features and options available to build the solution that fits you best. Start by selecting a Document Management Server, then pick the Clients, Input Modules and Server options. Special configurations are also available for small offices and workflow applications.

Alchemy helps your operation to grow without constantly adding more clerical staff, and it produces tangible hard dollar cost savings from reduced expenses on supplies, floor space and labour costs. Alchemy saves you time, money, provides better document security and helps you better maintain documents as records to meet compliance objectives. You have several easy ways to capture documents into the Alchemy archive: Scan paper in from just about any document scanner; drag-and-drop files from Windows Explorer; check documents in from within Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint; or add the entire contents of a network folder. Alchemy is very good at capturing, indexing and managing scanned paper documents, faxes, emails, PDFs, computer reports and anything else in its final form. Once in the archive, anyone in your organization can find a file in seconds without leaving their PCs and there are no more lost documents to kill your productivity.

Alchemy will grow with your business while minimizing the need to invest in additional IT resources. Imaging, capture, indexing, archival and retrieval, document management, records management, integration and distribution functions are available when and where you need it. To provide additional flexibility for your business, the document management software runs either on a server or as a stand-alone desktop configuration, and can be deployed over the Web for remote user or self-service scenarios as well. By providing access to Alchemy through a drive letter in Windows, Alchemy enables users to interact with their documents through familiar interfaces such as Windows Explorer, My Computer and Microsoft Office along with almost any other business application.

Regardless of the document type, Alchemy provides a centralized digital archive and a familiar folder-based user experience. Use Alchemy to consolidate documents from multiple systems and then deliver them to anyone who needs them via multiple delivery channels, including Web, CD, or DVD. As the choice of more than 11,000 organisations worldwide since 1993, Alchemy is a name you can trust in document management software.
