What is ImageOptimization for OpenText Documentum?

Foxit Software, Inc. has carried out trusted integrations into OpenText environments since 2004 (formerly EMC Documentum). Our ImageOptimization software is designed for automated, high-volume backfile conversion of image documents within the OpenText Documentum repository. ImageOptimization integrates seamlessly into OpenText Documentum for swift deployment and ease of use. With advanced OCR, industry-leading file compression, and robust PDF conversion capabilities, ImageOptimization for Documentum rapidly converts paper and scanned images to highly efficient PDF documents.

ImageOptimization uniquely pulls documents already sitting in the Documentum repository, processes them, and places them back where they were as optimized PDF and PDF/A assets. OpenText Documentum clients in energy and engineering, government, and financial services cut download times in half and facilitate faster communications with clients and remote workers. In addition, with support for ISO-compliant PDF/A-2u conversion, ImageOptimization helps Documentum clients convert scanned documents for stable, secure, long-term digital archiving.

The software is designed with flexibility to conform to your document processes. It can also operate on documents on their way into Documentum, to optimize documents moving through your live and recurring business processes. Further, Foxit ImageOptimization is built with automation and high-volume efficiency features to help streamline costs and minimize recognition errors in your conversion processes.

Backfile Conversion Software for Documentum: Use Cases

ImageOptimization Software Features

Industry-Leading Document Compression for Documentum

Highly compressed documents are more efficient to email, download, access, and store. Global energy and engineering client GE Power & Water uses ImageOptimization to reduce download times of large architectural and design documents from 4-5 minutes to as low as 30 seconds. With industry-leading compression rates, ImageOptimization compresses black and white documents at a ratio of up to 10:1. Using state-of-the-art MRC compression, Foxit compresses color image documents as much as 100:1.

At higher volumes, cloud and server storage costs can also be a pain point for large enterprises using OpenText Documentum. By maximizing compression, organizations can use ImageOptimization to reduce storage costs by 50%. In repositories with higher proportions of image documents (vs. born-digital files), the savings can be even greater.

Digitization of Paper and Scanned Image Documents

ImageOptimization complements Documentum with robust, automated PDF optimization features for paper and scanned documents. Designed for high-volume document processing environments, the solution provides OCR, compression, and conversion to ISO-compliant, high-quality PDF. It also supports conversion to accessible, searchable PDF/A documents and is an excellent solution for document archiving and compliance processing inside Documentum.

ImageOptimization makes PDF processing significantly more efficient with touchless watched folder mode, batch processing, and multi-threading. These features help transform document digitization processes with blazing speed and less error from manual handling.

Seamless Integration into OpenText Documentum

We have integrated our software into OpenText solutions since 2004. Because it integrates seamlessly into Documentum, Foxit’s ImageOptimization facilitates swift user adoption for faster time to value.

Licensing options follow a page volume model on either a recurring or one-time basis. This model works well for organizations who need to optimize documents from day-to-day business processes as well as for batch conversion of legacy documents already inside Documentum.

Flexible Document Processing

Documentum users rely on ImageOptimization to conform to the needs of live, recurring business processes as well as large batch backfile conversion. ImageOptimization is a flexible solution that can pull documents from inside Documentum, process them, and then place them back where they were for better indexing, archiving, and management. It also can be used as a preliminary processing stage for inputs before moving them into the repository. This makes ImageOptimization an effective tool for both one-time conversion projects of existing assets as well as recurring document processing.

GE Power & Water Increases Document Handling Efficiency with ImageOptimization

Global energy and engineering client GE Power & Water faced heavy delays from long file download times as well as high bandwidth and storage costs. They used ImageOptimization for OpenText Documentum to compress large architectural documents and CAD drawings, reducing download time from 4-5 minutes each to as little as 30 seconds per document in many cases.
