SharePoint IT administrators can now assign multiple metadata values, including terms & keywords from custom taxonomies, to documents as they are scanned or via a web service.

Pingar, a leading provider of unstructured data management solutions, today announced that it had received the accolade of SharePoint Idol at the South East Asia SharePoint Conference held in Singapore 8-9 November. At the conference, located in Booth #1, Pingar is demonstrating its API components to augment SharePoint's capabilities by automatically adding metadata to documents, giving organisations the ability to search, share and summarise previously unstructured data.

Peter Wren-Hilton, Pingar CEO, says “Whilst SharePoint Idol is an innovative event at SharePoint Conferences, this is the second time this year that Pingar has been selected as Best New Product in Show by conference delegates. Given the delegate mix of seasoned business leaders and SharePoint architects and developers, this represents once again a significant endorsement of Pingar’s API technology from the global SharePoint community”.

Pingar’s SharePoint 2010 Metadata Add-on Module uses Pingar’s Entity Extraction technology to enable named entities to be extracted from documents sitting inside SharePoint 2010 document sets. These entities are then automatically assigned as metadata values to the document’s metadata property fields. Pingar’s SharePoint 2010 Metadata Add-on Module can integrate easily into custom taxonomies allowing enterprises to more easily find and categorise information within their SharePoint environment.

Pingar components make it easy for SharePoint developers to add the ability to detect entities in invoices for metadata tagging (Invoice Analyser), and automatically add content-specific metadata to documents as they are loaded into the SharePoint system. Additionally, Pingar provides image capture solutions with the ability to instantly add metadata as documents are being scanned.

Today’s endorsement in Singapore follows the announcements of partnerships between Pingar and Fuji Xerox in June, 2011 and between Pingar and DICOM International AG at the 2011 SharePoint Conference in Anaheim, Calif. last month. These partnerships mean that thousands of enterprises in Australasia, Europe, Middle East & Africa will be able to automatically assign multiple metadata values to documents as they are being scanned into SharePoint 2010.

Wren-Hilton, says “By providing SharePoint IT administrators with the opportunity to assign multiple metadata values, including terms & keywords from custom taxonomies, to documents as they are scanned or via a web service, Pingar has completely revolutionised how metadata can be assigned to documents inside SharePoint 2010. Categorising and finding information is now easier than ever”.
