(Konica Minolta), a leader in smart office solutions, enterprise content management (ECM) and cloud services, is expanding its award-winning solutions portfolio with the launch of a new version of its automated document workflow application, Dispatcher Phoenix® ECM.

New offerings include:
- Dispatcher Phoenix ECM – This new edition includes all features of the award-winning Dispatcher Phoenix Foundations application, along with batch scanning/indexing tools (Dispatcher Phoenix Workstation, batch indexing, verification, ECM Reports, batch manager) and extensive Dispatcher Phoenix add-in options, such as ODBC processing, advanced OCR, barcode processing, forms processing, Release2Me for follow-you printing, convert to Microsoft Office and PDF, OnBase and SharePoint connectors, mobile user licenses, and much more.
- Dispatcher Phoenix Basic – This entry-level ECM edition includes all features of Dispatcher Phoenix Foundations along with batch scanning and indexing tools (Dispatcher Phoenix Workstation, batch indexing, batch verification, ECM reports and batch manager). ODBC processing and metadata bundle options are included as well.
- Dispatcher Phoenix Workstation for batch scanning ─ The Dispatcher Phoenix Workstation is an easy-to-use, desktop application for batch scanning that works with any manufacturer’s high-speed scanner. A variety of pre-scan options are available, including the ability to automatically separate documents based on bar code, patch code, blank pages detected, specified page count, etc. Once documents are scanned into the Workstation, scan operators can easily reorder, rotate, and flip pages, split/merge documents, rescan or insert missing pages and more, using a real-time thumbnail image view.
- Batch Indexing ─ Another powerful feature of Dispatcher Phoenix ECM, batch indexing allows operators to index documents before they are exported to other systems. To increase accuracy and speed indexing time, fields can be automatically populated with data from any ODBC-compliant database or information captured from forms processing, zonal OCR, etc. The Batch Indexing tool is available from Dispatcher Phoenix’s web user interface, allowing operators to index documents from their own workstation using a web browser with zero deployment efforts.
- Document Verification ─ This web-based verification tool allows operators to check the quality of the scanned images in the batch, easily approve or reject documents, zoom in and out, page through documents using a variety of keyboard shortcuts, and more.
- ECM Reports ─ Track activity for productivity and billing with the online report generator tool. ECM reports can be easily generated and downloaded into PDF or CSV file format.
- Batch Manager ─ A one-stop view of all active batches is available from Dispatcher Phoenix Web. From this centralized location, administrators and indexing operators can unlock, monitor and access batches.
