contentCrawler is an integrated analysis, processing and reporting framework that intelligently assesses documents in iManage for bulk processing. Users can bulk process documents in the content repository using either the OCR or Compression modules. Or, they can do both. For example, contentCrawler will convert all image-based documents in iManage to text-searchable PDFs. The Compression module will then apply compression and downsampling to all PDFs, reducing them in file size.

Unique differentiators/features

  • Time savings
    contentCrawler finds the hidden files that can be as much as 30% of all files in a repository. Save up to 240 hours a year per person in lost productivity looking for missing or invisible documents. Save up to 120 hours per year per person OCR’ing documents.
  • Automated OCR processing
    contentCrawler delivers an automated end-to-end process that can run 24/7 without any staff intervention, emailing periodic notifications of processing statistics and error reporting to the IT Administrator. Staff no longer have to worry about OCR or Compression as a process or workflow.
  • Multi-process service
    IT Administrators are able to combine the OCR and Compression modules into a single service.
  • Available as a cloud or on-premises solution
    contentCrawler cloud powered by Microsoft Azure integrates with iManage Cloud.
