Ephesoft’s Platform in a SaaS Environment

Ephesoft is leading the content capture and data discovery market by breaking traditional boundaries with the ability to offer customers Smart Capture®️ in the cloud. Ephesoft can host your smart document capture solution to provide modern, cutting-edge technology using supervised machine learning technology. This next generation software in the cloud is called Capture-as-a-Service (CaaS).

Ephesoft Transact Cloud Offerings


The Ephesoft transact in the cloud Standard level provides a dedicated cloud instance for customers, and can provide document capture at volumes from 60,000 to 500,000 images per year. It includes our powerful web services layer, allowing the use of our mobile capture application, SnapDoc, and integrations with your line of business systems, workflow/BPM tools and developer projects.


The Ephesoft Transact in the cloud Professional level is our fully capable dedicated instance, with access to all the optional components we provide: Web Services, Mobile, Advanced Reporting, Disaster Recovery and more. It provides licensing at the CPU core level, removing volume restrictions, and providing maximum throughput for time-sensitive document processing. The instance runs on high-level cloud infrastructure, providing maximum service levels and guaranteed uptime.


The Ephesoft in the cloud Premium level is our top tier offering that takes advantage of Ephesoft’s clustering technology for high-level throughput, high availability and maximum efficiency. Each offering at this level includes two instances, and additional cores can be added for more throughput and processing power to meet the needs of the most demanding organizations.

Ephesoft Cloud HyperExtender

The Ephesoft Cloud HyperExtender is an optional add-on to both on-premise and cloud deployments of Ephesoft Transact. By seamlessly delegating the most CPU-intensive smart capture activity to a highly optimized and scalable cloud infrastructure, the Cloud HyperExtender dramatically improves the overall performance of Ephesoft Transact systems by up to 46X. This makes it an ideal addition to environments experiencing sustained high demand and particularly those where there are sudden peaks in demand that might degrade overall system performance.

Core benefits for a Capture-as-a-Service platform

Time to Value

On-premises software implementations can be a long-term journey and require an additional budget for hardware, IT resource time and long budget cycles for capital expenditure approvals. With Ephesoft Transact in the cloud, the time to value is minimized and the smart capture platform can be up and running in a fraction of the time.

Cost of Ownership

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) reduces the overall solution cost of ownership by including support, and eliminating the need for hardware, backups, monitoring, dedicated administration and overall management. By including these costs in one recurring fee, complexity and overhead are reduced and IT spend becomes more predictable.


No longer is smart document capture only for large organizations with an entire IT department onboard. Now, smaller organizations can have access to enterprise-class technology and glean all the advantages and efficiency to stay competitive, finding the ability to challenge their larger rivals.

Access to Innovation

With SaaS + CaaS models, access to the leading-edge software is included. As vendors improve their processing engine, customers can immediately take advantage of the added efficiency. Subscriptions provide continuous value, and appreciates over time as more features and functionality are added.

Scalability and Agility

Cloud platforms are built for maximum scalability and flexibility. The system is built to easily add more cores, features and processing power, depending on their requirements and needs. Clients can start small and grow with a flexible subscription model.

Capture Anywhere

Ephesoft CaaS provides smart capture anywhere, on any device. Users can automate document processes with a browser, smartphone or tablet. This allows today’s distributed workforce to maximize and access the many benefits available in the cloud.

With each incremental application moved from on-premises to the cloud, the advantages are multiplied, and become a catalyst for cost savings, efficiency and accuracy. As a true driver for business process improvement, CaaS is a perfect opportunity for organizations still tied to legacy, dated or on-premises capture solutions to capitalize on this technology.
