bEST Technology Suite

GlobalCapture from Square 9 Softworks

Square 9 Softworks GlobalCapture is a bEST certified simple yet powerful solution for streamlining document capture and data extraction, operating as a standalone capture automation engine or feeding Square 9’s GlobalSearch Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution. Accessible from the touch panel of your Konica Minolta multifunctional printer, GlobalCapture enables anyone with access to the MFP to initiate a workflow that scans documents, intelligently separates them and extracts high value data.


Advanced capture features such as image enhancement, document separation, positional OCR/BCR, pattern matched extraction and line item extraction can all be configured to take place server side or post scan saving time and resources. As a standalone engine, the resulting documents and extracted data can be routed to a dynamic Windows folder location or saved to a CSV or SQL data source for upload into the ECM or ERP solution of your choice. Tethered with Square 9’s GlobalSearch ECM, documents are indexed by their captured data and can be retrieved via simple to use searches. With the GlobalAction business process management (BPM) engine, documents can be evaluated and routed automatically to users where action is required such as in authoring or approval processes.


Not only can you initiate the capture of documents at your Konica Minolta device, but when tethered to GlobalSearch, QuickSearch provides users the ability to search against the document repository, preview the resulting document(s) and print without ever having to go back to a PC.


Square 9’s GlobalCapture bEST certified connector requires the iOption browser (LK-101) and UK-20X memory upgrade where applicable.
