Facts to Consider when Choosing an Enterprise Content Management Solution: The Hyland Software and OnBase Difference
Throughout Hyland.com, we do our best to educate you about enterprise content management (ECM) with our ECM Solution Guide, inform you about trends in our industry, like the emergence of mobile solutions, as well as trends within your industry, such as the focus on Accountable Care Organizations in healthcare. We work hard to provide you with all the tools you need to make an educated and informed buying decision.
But we also know that – above all else – the two most important matters to consider when investing in an ECM solution are the simplicity and flexibility of the software and the stability and innovation of the company and people providing you with the solution.
That's why we'd like to take a moment of your time to share with you a few of the things that set apart Hyland Software and OnBase.
Ever thought about how much time and money you spend waiting for information? Manually routing data and documents in and out of your organization is not just expensive – it’s risky. The workflow management tool in OnBase can help. Tasks that require an army in a paper-based world can be completed quickly and easily by a small team with Workflow.
More than just routing documents, Workflow automatically processes work so you can focus on the job you were hired for – not chasing paper. The OnBase Workflow software solution is quickly and easily configured to meet rapidly changing business conditions so you get a competitive advantage and better meet the needs of those who rely on you. Just as importantly, the documents Workflow processes are safe. No more folders on desks, left in cars or mysteriously lost. Only the right people at the right time can access it. More >>
OnBase Mobile Solutions
Want to approve transaction like an invoice, requisition, expense report or vacation request from your smartphone or iPad from the back of a Yellow Cab? How about give access to new documents and eForms in the field with a simple search? OnBase Mobile can do it all from more devices than ever.
With OnBase Mobile, users have access to proven capabilities in their OnBase workflow and enterprise content management solution when they need it, how they need.

OnBase Document Capture and Imaging
Solve your document capture, imaging and import problems with one solution. Our document imaging and management solutions reduce storage costs, help you meet compliance standards and increase productivity. Beyond just document imaging solutions, OnBase has many tools to meet your needs.
Business applications might be the backbone of your organization, but getting usable information out of them in a timely and cost-effective manner can be a challenge. Many organizations print large reports and distribute them as needed, but this is time-consuming and costly. Additionally, manually searching for a specific piece of information within that report can be frustrating. To top it all off, related documents stored across systems are hard to connect.
Centralized scanning often isn’t as painless and simple as it sounds. Getting documents to the central location often comes with high shipping costs and decreased cycle times. Centralized scanning also takes documents out of the hands of those who know the most about them and can lead to indexing errors. All of this slows customer service and even puts new business and revenues at risk. Securely capturing the documents where they were created reduces shipping costs and enhances service.
Don’t copy, store and hunt for paper documents anymore. Instead, scan documents in with OnBase Document Imaging. They’ll be more secure, easier to access and quickly passed through processes. With document imaging management, employees don’t have to waste time on tedious paper filing or searching through folders and file cabinets. That means they’ll have more time to spend on core job functions and they’ll get more done. More >>
OnBase Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
Finding what you need in a document with thousands of pages is like looking for a needle in a haystack. OnBase optical character recognition (OCR) software finds the needle for you. The OCR application lets you search for any word or phrase in a scanned or imported image.
Optical character recognition software eliminates hunting through a lot of pages or a group of documents. For example, OnBase OCR lets healthcare organizations find a single patient’s data in a long explanation of benefits (EOB). Accounts payable departments find specific items in invoices that could have hundreds of lines. When you have specific information that is hard to index or locate, OCR makes it easy to find. That way you speed up business decisions.
- Finds information quicker to speed up business decisions
- Eliminates wasted time scrolling through pages to find one detail
- Lets users search across multiple documents without hunting through each one
OnBase Automated Indexing and Data Extraction
Turning paper documents into powerful, reusable business content doesn’t stop at scanning. But manually entering information from the scanned image into line-of-business systems is time consuming and expensive. The process often creates indexing bottlenecks and increases cycle times. Automated forms processing applications are often difficult to install and require additional application management.
Automated Indexing brings optical character recognition (OCR) technology to OnBase.
Pre-defined template forms, combined with an accurate OCR engine, lets you automatically classify and index scanned images. OCR-based classification and indexing can be more reliable and much faster than manual entry. The OCR engine performs the mundane task of document indexing while staff validate or correct questionable values only when needed.
- Reduces overall resource requirements needed for document indexing and classification
- Improves document indexing accuracy and speed
- Speeds time-sensitive data and documents into your business processes to reduce cycle times
