First Business Productivity App to Combine Mobile Document Capture, Secure Electronic Forms Processing and Print-On-Demand Capabilities
Notable Solutions, Inc. (NSi), a leading developer of transactional capture and workflow solutions, recently announced the launch of NSi Mobile, a productivity app for organizations in need of extending business processes to their mobile workforces. NSi Mobile extends the power of NSi AutoStore to Android and iOS devices and is the only solution to provide mobile document and photo capture; secure electronic forms processing; secure access to files within a user’s home directory; and secure print-on-demand capabilities, all in one combined solution.
“As smartphones and tablets become more ubiquitous, mobile workers are increasingly looking for ways to keep business processes moving forward while not in the office. The ability to capture information remotely and tie it back to an organization’s business applications is vitally important to improving customer satisfaction, meeting regulatory compliance, and increasing business productivity,” said Mehdi Tehranchi, CEO of Notable Solutions. “With NSi Mobile, NSi further demonstrates our ability to bring innovative new solutions to market which enable customers to meet their evolving business needs.”
“Mobility is a part of a nexus of innovative and disruptive forces currently driving new business scenarios,” said Gartner analyst Pete Basiliere. According to a recent Gartner report, “Increasingly, mobile devices are becoming not only consumers of content but also producers (cameras used to capture and onboard images, videos for corporate needs as well as document scanning, and QR/bar code capture). They are becoming tools used in processes – for example, workflow approvals and changes to documents. It, therefore, makes good business sense to plan for a strong mobile ECM user experience.”*
With NSi Mobile, data from accounting, healthcare, ERP or any number of other business applications is extended out to mobile workforces, enabling them to securely deliver documents, photographs and other electronic information back into the business process. Use cases for NSi Mobile include the healthcare worker who needs to quickly capture point-of-care information with a tablet and deliver it into an EHR system; the field service professional who can now provide real-time work order updates directly into their ERP system; and a university administrator who wants to extend print output and document delivery capabilities to students while they are on campus.
NSi Mobile is an extension of Notable Solutions' award winning AutoStore software platform. Used by more than 13,000 organizations worldwide, AutoStore orchestrates the capture and secure delivery of paper and electronic documents into business applications.
Key capabilities of NSi Mobile include:
• Mobile document and photo capture: Information available on a mobile device including email attachments, files from other applications including cloud based services as well as photos taken with the device can now be delivered directly into other business applications, providing real-time situational awareness of the activity. As a result, increased time to resolution and customer satisfaction is achieved.
• Secure electronic forms: Remote workforces can complete electronic forms instantly on their mobile devices with robust, two-way data validation ensuring accurate information is delivered into the business process. By using electronic forms, paper is eliminated, error rates are minimized, costs and delays associated with processing paper-based forms are reduced.
• Secure file access (MyFiles): The MyFiles capability integrates directly with an organization’s existing infrastructure and gives users access to files from their home directory or corporate network, to view or deliver into a business process. With secure file access, organizations can extend access to enterprise content and information to mobile users with no changes to the existing IT policies.
• Secure pull print: NSi’s secure pull print capabilities enable employees to print “on-demand” documents at any MFP or networked printer in their organization by simply selecting from their mobile device the closest networked MFP/printer or scanning the QR code attached to the output device. The user’s print jobs are then presented on the mobile device where they can be selected for immediate output.
The NSi Mobile client will be available in October from the Apple App Store as well as Google Play. The NSi Mobile server will be available for download through the AutoStore Software Update service for customers using AutoStore 6 Service Pack 1 or greater. Additional client licenses for use with NSi Mobile are required.
