Introducing KYOCERA Capture Manager – The New Scanning and Capture Software Solution for Businesses

  • Printers / Multifunctionals

Hoofddorp, The Netherlands – 1 October, 2018: KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe, one of the world’s leading document solutions organisations, has announced the launch of KYOCERA Capture Manager (KCM), a new tool to help optimise businesses workflows through data capturing.


KCM assists organisations in the automation of workflows through the capture, process, classification and routing of important data from documents of all types, whether they are scanned from paper or received digitally via email, web or mobile. Through the elimination of manual processes – such as reading and typing information and sending to the correct person or business system – more time can be allocated to important tasks, allowing business processes to be optimised.

Once captured, KCM intelligently identifies and classifies the type of document, extracting the required information and making the data ready for other systems to process. Routing of the data is automated on a system such as financial or accounting software, network storage or cloud services such as OneDrive or Dropbox.

KCM uses the Tesseract and ABBYY OCR systems to ensure the highest quality scanning and data extraction. The software is now available in two versions: Lite and Pro, whilst both versions can run independently of KYOCERA or other brands of multifunctional printers.

Michael Powell, Expert Software Product Management, KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe said: “Organisations are increasingly looking to intelligent systems to improve operational efficiency. KCM does exactly this, helping businesses of all sizes to automate the extraction of data from every type of document, improving the speed and accuracy of critical business processes.”

KCM provides a comprehensive suite of products that allows business decision-makers to choose the specific capture solution that best suits their needs. The software’s rich feature set makes it perfect for businesses of all types – from those with the most straightforward of needs to others with the most demanding and complex processes.”

Additional features of KCM include:

  • Image correction and noise reduction.
  • Format conversion and output to MS Office format.
  • Form recognition, structured and unstructured document classification.
  • Automatic rule validation.
  • Workflow editor, FullText and zonal OCR.
  • Barcode, Mark Sheet and handwriting reading.
  • Access Control by User Management.

The technology enables businesses to optimise processes, providing connectors and outputs to the most commonly used storage sources by business users such as SharePoint, Email Servers, External Databases via open database connectivity (ODBC), FTP servers and commonly used public clouds. By offering connectors and outputs to store in databases, other solutions can also be supported such as Document Management Solutions (DMS), Enterprise Content Management Solutions (ECM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Information Exchange Platforms (IEP).
