With eBridge, it's not all about the paper.
eBridge makes it easy for you to scan and store your paper documents, but some of
your most critical information may already be digital. For that data, we provide
a set of utilities to seamlessly integrate 3rd-party PC applications and files with
your eBridge hosted services.
The Print Driver allows
users to "print" electronic documents — such as forms, e-mails, web pages
or other common desktop applications - directly into eBridge's hosted document management
system. Instead of printing and scanning your files, any document you can print
to paper can be "virtually printed" directly into your eBridge filing cabinet and
indexed for the same level of precision search and retrieval as all of your scanned
The eLink Utility
allows you to use specific information from 3rd-party software to conduct searches
within your web-based document management service. Simply select data - such as
customer numbers, addresses, and phone numbers - from within a non-eBridge document,
and with one keystroke, you'll be able to retrieve all eBridge files containing
that information in any of your indices. It's great for quickly and easily retrieving
information from your primary business applications, such as billing or customer
management software. You don't need to toggle back and forth or cut and paste to
retrieve information - eLink does all the work for you.
Already outsourcing your document scanning?
If your business already relies on an outside scanning bureau or document services
provider to convert and archive your paper files, eBridge can complement their services
and add significant functionality when accessing those archived files. Many digital
document or scanning service providers scan to digital and then return the files
on a hard disk or CD / DVD to their clients. Not only is this a fairly clumsy manner
of handling the files, it also introduces an element of risk since these files are
often unencrypted. Some clients add these disks to their in-house servers,
but often, they just collect dust.
Now, you can simply have your scanning services partner capture those documents
in eBridge. Not only will they be protected from the start, but they will be accessible
24/7. Since eBridge does not charge a per-user fee, you can add your scanning
vendor to the system at no cost to you, and through our user controls, configure
them to only capture files without giving them access to retrieve, delete or
share any of your information.
