SimpleECM Adds Full Capture Automation to Industry's First Widget-Based Mobile Document Capture SDK

Advanced Capabilities Also Available to Consumers With Updated SimpleScan DC 2.1.0 Mobile App

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - September 15, 2014) - Document Capture Technologies (DCT), a leader in mobile capture devices and innovative productivity solutions, today announced the addition of full capture automation functionality for its SimpleECM Mobile Document Capture Software Development Kit (SDK). This update provides the capability to automatically detect the edges of a document, crop out content only, and photo capture -- without any user intervention. The SDK offers developers a radically simplified tool to incorporate document capture functionality into their iOS, Android, and Kindle apps.

Optimized for document capture, the SimpleECM Mobile SDK also provides multi-page capture and advanced image enhancement features, such as 3D de-skew, crop, rotate, brightness, and grayscale conversion. This SDK enables developers to quickly and easily integrate advanced scanning features into their apps via a widget that can be incorporated into cloud-based apps like ERP, and other productivity applications with only a few lines of code. Additionally, each feature can be enabled or disabled individually by simply turning them on or off.

"For today's SaaS applications, mobile functionality is no longer an option, and customers are demanding that applications are extended to mobile workers," said Karl Etzel, President and CEO, DCT. "Our mobile SDK is unique because it can be used to add a mobile component to branded document management workflows or to create something entirely new."

The SimpleECM mobile scanning SDK is part of the SimpleECM API platform for document management, which makes it easy to integrate document capture and content management capabilities into web-based business applications. The SimpleECM API platform transforms business documents into actionable data with APIs such as Invoice Processing and OCR, making it both easy to build productivity-enhancing workflows such as accounts payable (AP) automation or inventory management and making SMBs more productive with a smarter use of data.

SimpleECM's SDK can be seen in action with the recently updated SimpleScan DC Apps for Android and iOS, which are both free to download. More information can be found here:
