Working with key technology partners like Concept Searching allows Kodak to deliver market leading solutions that empower end users to drive business efficiency.

McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB) September 21, 2012

Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, has entered into a partnership agreement with Kodak’s Document Imaging Business, the world’s foremost imaging innovator. The arrangement brings together Concept Searching’s expertise in metadata generation, search, classification and taxonomy management with the precision, power and performance delivered by Kodak’s capture platform of software, hardware and services.

Technology from Concept Searching will complement Kodak’s solutions, by using higher order conceptual metadata at capture stage direct from the scanner, which intelligently routes documents, identifies sensitive information, and automatically declares documents of record. This enables enterprises to mitigate risk and ensure compliance. The implementation of the technology platform truly integrates the paper with the digital, not merely digitizing paper, but adding real intelligence with which to apply and enforce policy and process.

Rod Hughes, Director of Global Alliances for Kodak’s Document Imaging business, said “Kodak’s Document Imaging business continues to invest in products and partnerships that enhance productivity at the point of capture. This enables our customers to meet the demands of a fast-paced business process workflow. Working with key technology partners like Concept Searching allows Kodak to deliver market leading solutions that empower end users to drive business efficiency.”
Concept Searching delivers its Smart Content Framework™ to the partnership, which is a toolset based on its flagship product conceptClassifier for SharePoint, that provides the enterprise infrastructure framework to mitigate risk, automate processes, manage information, protect privacy, and address compliance issues. The result is one set of technologies, running natively in SharePoint, which improves search, provides an enterprise metadata repository, automates records management, ensures compliance, protects and secures data, and facilitates migration.

Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching, commented, “We are excited to partner with Kodak, combining our market-leading software technology with its expertise in delivering document imaging solutions. Concept Searching is Microsoft's only managed partner in the SharePoint ecosystem delivering taxonomy management and auto-classification, and our Microsoft suite of products is unique in its native integration with the SharePoint 2010 Term Store and managed metadata properties. This makes Concept Searching the ideal partner for Kodak customers looking to manage intelligent capture, combining paper records with digital information, while at the same time applying and enforcing policies, mitigating risk and ensuring compliance.”
