Data Sheet
Automate your
business processes.
Capture and secure delivery of paper and
electronic documents into business applications
What is Nuance
AutoStore is a server-based application which orchestrates the capture
and secure delivery of paper and
electronic documents into business
applications. It is well suited for
organizations of all sizes who want
to eliminate error-prone manual
document handling. Whether you’re
handling invoices, claims, applications or order forms, AutoStore can
automate your document-driven
business processes to help
lower costs, improve operational
efficiency, communication and
collaboration, and support compliance with laws and regulations.
AutoStore utilizes your existing infrastructure and captures information
from your multifunction peripherals,
smartphone, emails, fax servers,
shared/public folders, FTP sites,
Microsoft® Office® applications,
PC desktops, XML data streams
and other sources. The captured
information is then processed based
on your organization’s predetermined
workflow. Scanned images are
enhanced for improved readability,
text can be converted into editable
electronic information, barcodes can
be read, resulting in rich information
to be used for later retrieval. Once
processing is complete, the documents and the keywords describing
them are distributed to any number
of locations. Destinations can be
faxed, emailed, stored in a document
management system (DMS), on FTP
sites, in secure network folders, or
even multiple destinations simultaneously. All of this is performed
effortlessly with just the push of
a button on the front panel of the
device. That’s it. The workflow
happens immediately, ensuring your
information goes where you want it to
go quickly and accurately every time.
This is all possible due to
AutoStore’s customizable workflows
and personalized MFP menu panels.
With the help of the AutoStore
Process Designer, workflows can
be pre-configured and saved to
reduce the amount of manual steps
required by the end user. This
simple and easy to use capability
eliminates manual processes, which
helps reduce user errors and results
in accurate and efficient document
