We shifted from traditional document capture methods to IBM Datacap since it offers intelligent cognitive capture capabilities, which are robust and accurate. I don’t know if IBM Datacap is being utilized across the enterprise, but in Engineering department, we highly rely on it to automate processing of complex and unknown documents.
  • It eases data capturing from multiple devices such as scanners, faxes and emails in all formats.
  • AI-infused intelligent processing gives business users opportunities to capture complex and unknown documents from cloud and on-premise repositories.
  • Exporting documents to other applications is just by a one-click.
  • Even though IBM Datacap has enriched mobility and allows users to capture data with tablets and Smartphones, it tends to be slow and makes the devices to hang, mainly when using smartphones with outdated versions.
Once highly customized, IBM Datacap can suit any business unit and scenario. To realize accurate knowledge and insight base on business documents, I would emphasize use of IBM Datacap since it has robust OCR tool that ease document capturing.

Traditional methods of capturing documents tend to be hectic to use when processing complex and unknown document formats from external sources like emails and scanners. IBM Datacap is being used across all company departments to capture documents from faxes and emails as digital files and process them to modern formats.
  • Machine learning automates document processing from external applications and sources like scanners.
  • Exporting data with just a click to other content repositories.
  • Redaction of data based on requester role. Therefore, we are able to block irrelevant or sensitive information based on the specification of users.
  • Availability of a success team that offers free support during and post-implementation ensures that I am free from issues always. Therefore, whenever I need something I just call or email the customer support team.
I would recommend IBM Datacap to all businesses and users that want to protect sensitive data from delivering to the wrong business users by redacting data based on the role of the requester.

Classification and management of business documents are vital in every organization to enhance smooth workflow. IBM Datacap is the main tool being utilized at COTA to capture, automate data processing, and export to other repositories.
  • Capturing data and storing it in one integrated solution from other applications. It is easy to input documents from scanners, emails, and other digital files like PDF.
  • Once data is processed at stored in IBM Datacap it is easy to export to other repositories
  • Artificial Intelligence available on IBM Datacap automates data processing that is hectic to capture so ad they can be better understood by business users and machines/systems.
  • Image capture through IBM Datacap mobile application hangs when machine learning is processing metadata.
I would recommend it for data capturing, but it has other more vital capabilities that every agency requires on a daily basis. I would emphasize prospects to use it as pak for Business Automation to easily automate tasks and orchestrate workflow in the cloud.

We currently use IBM Datacap across the whole organization to ingest documents that are formatted and also with relevant data.
  • Ingest documents
  • Text analysis
  • Sometimes its documentation is poor
  • Creating customized flow [is] not always straight forward
  • Support from IBM could be better and faster
Scanning mechanism and ease of use provided out of [the] box. [However, the] speed of the application is slow and could be better.

We currently use Datacap to ingest standard formatted documents and free text documents, identify these and label them and extract relevant data. Development is limited to one team, but all incoming mail, email and snail is routed through it.
  • Ingest documents
  • Analyse text
  • Supporting documentation is poor
  • UI is old fashioned
It's well suited to extracting data from structured documentation and can do this with relative ease. It's less suited to images or Excel and has difficulty reading these.
Generally they are very good and reactive to our requests. if we find an issue our error they are quick to add a fix to the next release if needs be.
