KnowledgeLake Imaging for SharePoint

KnowledgeLake Imaging for SharePoint is an enterprise scalable and comprehensive SharePoint ECM solution for searching, viewing, securing, routing and annotating your company’s mission critical electronic content. The KnowledgeLake Document Imaging solution is built entirely within Microsoft SharePoint, it is easy to implement, easy to administer, and is low risk and low cost.

With KnowledgeLake Imaging Server, you can: 

  • Provide easy access to your information workers with pre-configured or flexible search scenarios
  • View, annotate and index images from a web browser using a SilverLight based document viewer
  • Easily scan batches of documents
  • Centralize the configuration of indexing, database validation and lookups for use across the entire KnowledgeLake product family 
  • Scan and index documents without ever leaving the SharePoint interface

Key components

  • Search
    Allows users to perform exact relevance searches using any combination of index values. Searches can be pre-configured and saved so that users can simply enter the appropriate index values and search across multiple SharePoint sites and document libraries. The KnowledgeLake Imaging search interface is a completely customizable web part that can  personalize the look and feel of search results, which can be grouped, filtered and sorted.  Imaging 2010 searching now supports combined property and keyword searching for all SharePoint content through a web part or the KnowledgeLake Imaging Search Center.
  • KnowledgeLake View
    The 2010 Silverlight based viewer has the look and feel of Microsoft Office products.  Users can view common document types from SharePoint such as PDF, TIFF, Office documents and most image formats immediately, without waiting for the entire document to download. This zero-footprint viewer makes it possible to view thumbnails and rotate, zoom, print and email images directly from a web browser. Users can view and/or edit the SharePoint properties while viewing the document, annotate documents from the browser and encrypt selective pages and portions of PDF and TIFF files. Specific pages from large documents can be booked marked for quick access, plus easily send URL Links to these bookmarks to any SharePoint user.
  • KnowledgeLake Index
    Provides an enterprise-wide indexing schema that allows administrators to configure document repositories, content types, index values, database validations and database lookups—all from a central location inside of SharePoint. This indexing schema integrates with all KnowledgeLake components for a consistent indexing interface. It allows all KnowledgeLake products to be configured centrally in SharePoint, but store the configurations locally for enhanced performance.
  • KnowledgeLake Scan
    Allows users to scan directly from within a SharePoint Document Library. Knowledgelake Scan is compliant with TWAIN scanners and will display the scanned images in SharePoint. Users can then view the images directly in the KnowledgeLake Scan window and index with KnowledgeLake Imaging Index prior to the final save.
  • Complete Software Development Kit
    Enables easy integration and customization within your organization.

Great Product

Would recommend this product to anyone wanting a solid ECM solution to integrate with SharePoint.

Product Reviews

Pros
Product offers a lot of functionality to enhance SharePoint's ECM capabilities. Support and professional services have both been great to work with over the last couple of years. Overall, our client has been happy with the product and upgrades are not overly complex to install. I would recommend taking advantage of their online training and Quick Start offers as the knowledge gained makes setup and deployment much easier. Our company uses the Capture, Connect and Imaging solutions.
Cons
SharePoint is a complex product. Since the solution integrates very tightly with SharePoint, it can be difficult at times to figure out if the issue is a SharePoint problem or a KnowledgeLake problem.

Excellent product but...

In general I am happy with KnowledgeLake. The upgrade path for SharePoint is complicated by it and other products installed on the SharePoint system. The end users are, for the most part, happy with it. The software just runs out there and is very rarely the problem when a user calls.

Product Reviews

Pros
We use it for scanning large volumes of documents into SharePoint. It is fast and usually accurate. The OCR software they use (ABBYY) is fast and can recognize some text I had trouble reading. Their support staff was very helpful when I had SharePoint dumped in my lap when the previous guy left. Our internal customers are happy with it for the most part.
Cons
Upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to 2010 was a bear. This is not specifically a problem with KnowledgeLake but since it is built in to SharePoint it had to be fully removed and all users migrated at once then re-installed. Also we had some users that were using an older version of their client software. They could not use it at all (lesson learned). :)

Great product. I've been using KnowledgeLake Imaging since Sharepoint 2003 and KnowledgeLake's ability to match and enhance the features of the current version of SharePoint is amazing. Their support team rocks too!

Shotty Programming Makes for nightmarish Administr

Support tries their hardest but it is evident their programmers don't effectively pass on any knowledge. Waiting for answers takes a very long time, if you get one at all.

Product Reviews

Pros
Great concept.
Cons
Horrible programming. Very Buggy.

Product Reviews

Pros
Excellent Support, Support Manual, Easy to Install/Configuration
Cons
We had some challenges to integrate AS400 to Imaging Server. They don't have any tools to connect directly to AS400 and end of using BizTalk server 2006 to resolve these issues.

Great tool

A very reliable tool used in conjunction with Capture Server. Provides many of the classic document management features as well as some nice productivity features like Saved Searches for the knowledge workers.

Product Reviews

Pros
Provides functionality for annotations, saved searches, and a powerful viewer.
Cons
Implementations with multiple MOSS web front ends can be a challenge since all configuration is set to use one single address. Multiple addresses supported through Alternate Access Mappings are/were not supported.
