Athento has been developed using modules. Its two main modules are the Capture module and the ECM module. These two modules, which are directly connected, were developed independently of each other and cover the phases of Capture, Storage, Management and part of Distribution. To cover other phases or areas, such as Business Process Management or Records Management, Athento gives users a platform that provides modular services which can be used to customize the tool.
Athento integrates cutting-edge technology such as Machine Learning, Semantics and Image Processing to automate related processes such as document capture. The Capture module can be installed in-house (in your business) or in the Cloud (on our servers).
The needs associated with document in the management, storage and distribution phases are covered by Athento ECM, which is a complete document management system. Athento’s ECM module can be implemented in-house (within your business) or in the Cloud (on our servers.)
