What’s New?

We are excited to introduce the following enhancements in Transact 2022.1.00:

Semantik AI Engine

Semantik AI Engine in Transact enables document processing for unknown document types. This feature allows for document automation without the need to create a template, train the system or configure the solution. The Semantik Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine is a microservice that extracts key-value pairs from any document. This service is installed separately from Transact and is the AI engine that powers the two new features Universal Document Automation and Document Design Accelerator. To install the service, refer to Semantik AI Engine.

Universal Document Automation

Universal Document Automation introduces a new, lightweight way to use Transact. Instead of starting your project by designing document types, Universal Document Automation is instantly ready to process form-based documents of all types with no up-front configuration required. This feature uses the Semantik AI Engine. For more information, refer to Universal Document Automation.

Document Design Accelerator

The Document Design Accelerator harnesses the power of AI to process new document types quickly and accurately. It applies AI to create a document type that is pre-populated with index fields and extraction rules, significantly reducing the time it takes to manually configure a document type. This feature uses the Semantik AI Engine. For more information, refer to Document Design Accelerator.

Cloud OCR Plugin

The Cloud OCR Plugin allows you to call advanced cloud OCR engines directly from your Transact deployment. For the 2022.1.00 release, you can use Google Cloud Vision for handprint, cursive, and machine print extraction through a direct connection to their existing Google Enterprise infrastructure. For more information, refer to Cloud OCR Plugin.

KV Extraction Rule Identification

We’ve included a new column called Rule ID within the KV Extraction Rule configuration. Users can now easily identify which rule has been applied for the extraction of each index field. The extraction rule identification will be available as part of the document processing information, allowing easier fine-tuning and maintenance for rule sets. For more information, refer to the Rule ID section of Key-Value Extraction Plugin.


Transact can now flatten static PDF XFA documents at Folder Import, which simplifies and expedites extracting data. For more information on how to enable this function, refer to Transact Property Files Reference Guide and Importing Additional File Types.
