BERKELEY, Calif., Oct. 15, 2012 -- Captricity (http://captricity.com), today announced direct integrations with well-known cloud services including Salesforce, Box, DropBox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, Google Spreadsheets and Constant Contact. This increased interoperability situates Captricity as part of an integrated data capture and management solution for small and large businesses and organizations.
Captricity's award-winning web-based data entry service quickly and accurately captures digital, structured data - including handwriting - from paper documents. Their turnkey integrations now allow individuals to seamlessly upload images of paper documents from the cloud and push the resulting digital data directly to their existing Salesforce and ConstantContact accounts. The integrations are all built on Captricity's soon-to-be-released API.
"Captricity's integrations build on an emerging model for the new 'Enterprise' stack," said Ian Smith , PhD, Chief of the Technical Staff at Captricity. "Big 'E' enterprise software has always been dauntingly complex. To address that complexity, software vendors needed to provide tightly integrated packages, often at the cost of good design, ease of use, and of course, with a hefty price tag." The new model, emerging with the success of companies like Expensify, Twilio, and Stripe, cuts through that complexity with a series of modular services that interface through REST-ful APIs. It is this model which Captricity is building upon. As Dr. Smith said, "It's no longer just software-as-a-service. When it's put together it's actually information infrastructure-as-a-service."
"Captricity's integrations break from the tradition of a number of big name software vendors, by providing a simple design and ease of use. Unlike many other vendors, our goal is to provide integrations that can be used immediately by anyone, without costly and time-consuming training programs," said Kuang Chen , Founder and CEO of Captricity. By focusing on a thin slice of the overall solution stack, user-centric design, and flexible, straightforward APIs, the new enterprise software stack provides enhanced functionality with a simple and elegant interface. "Simplicity and modularity allow companies to customize and change software solutions at the speed of business these days. That's the true promise of the cloud."
With this new suite of cloud integrations, Captricity is perfectly-poised to plug into the operations of businesses and organizations of all sizes and budgets, from large companies to civic agencies to international non-governmental organizations (NGOs). With the Box integration, insurance agents can add application forms to a cloud-based folder throughout the day, wherever they are; critical information will be waiting for them once they're back to the office, already entered in their system. Meanwhile, contractors can snap a photo of a paper checklist with the Captricity mobile app and automatically update their back-office almost immediately. "Manual, time-consuming data entry continues to interrupt many business processes; Captricity has already made those choppy processes work much more smoothly," said Chen. "These integrations take that to the next level, providing truly integrated and seamless workflows."
