SimpleIndex gives you an affordable, automated way to populate custom metadata tags when migrating documents to SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013. SimpleIndex uses a variety of methods to extract data, including zone OCR, barcode recognition, mark recognition (OMR) and text pattern matching. The data is assigned to index fields that correspond to the custom columns in your SharePoint document library. The extracted values can be reviewed and corrected if necessary before uploading.
Uploading individual documents to SharePoint is easy. The hard part is migrating thousands of files and tagging them with custom metadata that can be used for fast, precise searching and sorting.
Without metadata, only the filename is used for searching scanned documents. OCR can be used to enable text searching of images, but there are several limitations to text searches:
Advantages of the SimpleIndex SharePoint migration solution include:
SimpleIndex uses the SharePoint 2010 Client interface to communicate with SharePoint 2010. To use it, you must have Microsoft .NET 3.5 and the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model installed.
