PRobot – Data Capture Workflow Automation Engine

PRobot - Data Capture
Workflow Automation Engine


Paragon Systems’ PRobot technology is the next generation in document capture. The application is an open framework for developing document capture solutions not just a set of capture products. Paragon’s unique approach to information capture provides businesses with the ability to capture and process different types of information they receive through one single intuitive, easy to use interface, the “PRobot Control Console”. Whether it’s fax capture, email capture, paper capture and scanning, or any type of electronic document capture it can all be processed and monitored through the PRobot Control Console. Paragon has developed standard PRobot modules for the import and export of various information types, such as; fax, email, electronic data streams (EDI), print streams, and general data records. The modules are developed as a dll plugin. A customer can purchase a standard module from Paragon, have Paragon develop a custom module for them, or develop the module themselves.

PRobot is a multi-threaded, web service based, thin client application with true automated workflow capabilities. What this means is that the PRobot server can support multiple PRobot modules simultaneously. A business can capture and process all their scanned documents, faxes, emails, EDI streams and other information imports and exports all on one licensed server and perform various workflow processes that are created within the various capture processes. The PRobot Control Console allows an administrator to pre-program the rules and process for a work-item once it enters the capture process. These automated processes can contain database lookups, data mapping instructions, document format transitions, OCR text extraction, document normalization, and many other automated processes

A business is no longer faced with the complicated task of maintaining individual disjointed applications in order to complete their capture import/export processes with the PRobot application.
