From the 2011 SharePoint Conference in Anaheim, California Pingar, a leading provider of unstructured data management solutions today announced a partnership with DICOM International, the leading value added distributor of hardware and software solutions for document capture in EMEA, to provide data capture solutions that help enterprises gain business value from unstructured documents.

DICOM has strong relationships with the global Capture market and Pingar technology, which fills a niche previously missing in the after-the-event management of unstructured data, will strengthen DICOM’s already successful solution suite.

DICOM will work to identify opportunities where Pingar technology can be leveraged and create reseller awareness. DICOM expects these solutions will offer significant operational efficiencies and cost savings to businesses and will be a great added component to offer to their reseller channel. Examples of potential solutions include solving business challenges such as capturing data from smart phones and mobile scanning solutions.

“The DICOM/Pingar relationship has created an opportunity for the two companies to build and strengthen a portfolio of software that complements DICOM’s already successful solution suite,” said Michael Humblet, Head of Business Development, EMEA, DICOM International AG. “Pingar provides technology that fills a niche previously missing in the after-the-event management of unstructured data.”

Pingar technology moves beyond simple data capture to allow enterprises to effectively query information received, which aids in a variety of business processes and operations including compliance and auditing; business intelligence; workflow, collaboration and sharing; and the development of new lines of revenue.

Peter Wren-Hilton, Pingar CEO says “With approximately 3,000 value added resellers and 40 percent of the European scanning market, DICOM has a clear leadership position that is enhanced by its continuous commitment to developing valuable, innovative business solutions. Pingar adds another facet to DICOM’s solution suite, and strengthens the value provided to SharePoint enterprises.”

Pingar’s API enables DICOM to rapidly create custom applications and solutions to help businesses gain greater business value from unstructured data. Because Pingar’s API is scalable, lightweight and easy to deploy, solutions created with Pingar can integrate with any enterprise deployment, either on premise or in the cloud. DICOM will develop solutions to assist with workgroup and departmental scanning, mobile scanning and image capture and high volume capture.

Pingar is exhibiting at the SharePoint Conference 2011 October 3-6 in Anaheim, CA, and demonstrating its automatic assignment of metadata scanning technology at Booth #244.
