Brainware Distiller to Facilitate Unified Information Access Across the Enterprise
ASHBURN, Va., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Brainware, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent data capture and enterprise search solutions, announced today that a U.S.-based energy provider has selected Brainware Distiller™ for the efficient sorting and capture of millions of pages of incoming mail annually. The value of this contract is $4.1 million.
By implementing Distiller as a tool for digitizing parcels -- including paper, e-mails, fax transmissions and others -- at the point of receipt, the organization will be empowered to communicate vital business intelligence immediately, creating opportunities to address supplier and customer issues more quickly, reallocate personnel to higher-value activities and priorities, handle increased workloads without increasing overhead costs and more. Furthermore, conversion of paper documents to digital data will boost operational visibility and enable financial management to ensure compliance throughout the organization.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, key dynamics of the oil and natural gas industry -- productivity, consumption, cost -- continue to fluctuate. Additionally, events such as the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill and persistent unrest in the Middle East contribute to market instability and place additional pressures on the industry, disrupting supply and amplifying the call for new, alternative energy solutions. By streamlining operations through intelligent data capture technology, this customer will be positioned for optimal efficiency and operational control, enabling them to meet increased productivity demands and better support research initiatives.
"This customer required an application that could process and recover data from a database exceeding 30 terabytes and Brainware Distiller is the only data capture solution that can scale to those demands," said Carl Mergele, Chief Executive Officer at Brainware. "Requiring minimal effort for implementation, the software will be able to distinguish between more than a thousand different document types, and convert them into useful data with a precision and agility far beyond what the customer could achieve with manual protocols alone."
