SimpleScan Connect Leverages SimpleECM and CloudFS APIs to Expand the Market for Advanced Workflow Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - September 17, 2014) - API WORLD -- Document Capture Technologies (DCT), a leader in mobile capture devices and innovative productivity solutions, and Bitcasa, a leading provider of simple, secure cloud storage, announced today a partnership to provide SaaS developers with the tools to build powerful, affordable document workflow solutions. At API World this week, the companies are demoing the beta version of an inventory automation workflow built into DCT's SimpleScan Connect web service. This workflow allows users to scan invoices and have inventory data automatically extracted from the forms, saving business owners valuable time and money. 

DCT's SimpleECM platform includes services that address every step of common document workflows, starting with capture, then processing documents in the cloud and ultimately moving the extracted data into business applications. Developers of SaaS applications can access all of these services via familiar APIs, delivered on a pay-per-use basis. For workflows requiring storage, Bitcasa's CloudFS offers a plug-and-play file system that includes powerful security features and eliminates the need to surrender user data to third-party storage providers. 

"SimpleECM was built to bring cost-efficient, highly customized workflow services to a wide range of SaaS vendors," said Karl Etzel, President and CEO of DCT. "Ultimately this will expand the addressable market for advanced document management solutions. Bitcasa's CloudFS complements SimpleECM perfectly, with file storage features that save time and reduce complexity for end users."

"Bitcasa's mission has always been to provide powerful file storage services for streamlining the development process," said Brian Taptich, Bitcasa's CEO. "We are pleased to play an important part of the inventory management solution built into SimpleScan Connect, as it demonstrates the value of having integrated, white label file storage available to the developer community."
