Alberici Corporation Embraces Enterprise Capture and Big Data Technology from Computer Guidance, IBM

Computer Guidance Corporation, the leading developer of financial and project management software solutions for architecture, engineering and construction companies, today announced that Alberici Corporation has implemented an enterprise capture strategy using eCMS construction enterprise resource planning and IBM’s Datacap to better handle enterprise capture of big data, the massive volume of invoices and other documents the organization receives daily.

“IBM Datacap is the perfect complement to Computer Guidance’s Enterprise Content Management applications for the capture of large volume documents,” stated Greg Hesser, President and Chief Financial Officer, Alberici Group. “With the ability to capture data from both hand-written and printed sources, we are better able to handle the invoices and other documents we receive on a daily basis, and automate the entry of this information into eCMS without the need to manually key data.”

IBM Datacap enables the extraction of unstructured and physical data from captured documents enabling automated categorization, indexing and data entry. With the integration to Computer Guidance’s eCMS Enterprise Content Management applications, the solution automatically assigns category and sub-category based on document contents, updates user indexes and coding tables with recognized values, and automates data entry from invoices and other business documents helping to reduce cost and accelerate accounts payable processes.

“The integration with IBM Datacap creates new opportunities for our customers to eliminate manual processes and increase efficiency in their back office procedures,” stated Steven Gross, Director of Client Solutions, Computer Guidance Corporation. “This integration expands on our enterprise content management strategy providing contractors with the tools needed to create a competitive advantage in digital age and drive their profitability through the implementation of integrated technology solutions.”
