ASHBURN, Virginia, February 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Brainware, Inc., an innovative provider of intelligent data capture and enterprise search solutions, has announced the expansion of its Brainware Distiller(TM) platform to the corporate mailroom. This solution automates the mailroom process and allows business intelligence to be drawn from documents faster.

The mailroom can be a bottleneck for cash when orders, checks, contracts, and important correspondences sit waiting to be routed to the right departments. Until it has been processed, a million dollar payment or order looks the same as one for a single dollar, said Carl Mergele, Chief Executive Officer at Brainware. Brainware Distiller takes control of this process, providing unmatched levels of sorting and classification accuracy, removing the mailroom as a chokepoint for cash flow and allowing it to add value to an organization's operations.

Brainware Distiller's content-based classification technology allows the system to accurately sort documents without templates, keywords, zones, barcodes or other forms-based techniques. Additionally, the system is able to process documents in any format, including scanned images (TIFs), PDFs, faxes, emails, word processing and spreadsheet formats, and many more.

Once classified, Brainware Distiller extracts relevant indexing information as well as any specific fields of data and line-item detail that are required to process the document. As a single platform for any document type, Distiller is uniquely capable of picking up all documents from the mailroom, processing them based on the type of document they represent, and passing the relevant information directly into the transactional or content management systems.

There is one department that touches virtually every piece of information that is vital to an organization -- the mailroom, said Melissa Webster, Program Vice President with IDC. Our research has found that less than 10 percent of companies have automated this step, so there is tremendous room for process improvement. With the digital mailroom in place, there can be true end-to-end document processing automation.

Additional benefits of the Brainware Distiller solution include: -- Speed -- Automating the mailroom process allows organizations to significantly reduce the time, and the number of touches and decision points for each piece of mail, providing express delivery for documents that are tied to cash flow. -- Unmatched Classification -- The solution understands the content of the document, regardless of layout and without the need for keywords or pre-defined phrases. By using a small sample set of documents to train each class, the system can recognize a wide variety of documents quickly and accurately. -- Elimination of Lost Documents -- By processing documents at the point of entry to the mailroom, Brainware Distiller provides immediate visibility and status tracking. There is no longer any need to worry that documents in the mailroom will get lost, misplaced, or misrouted. Distiller provides detailed reporting of all documents processed.
