Introducing Microsoft Syntex
Here is a video from Microsoft Introducing Microsoft Syntex for IT Pros
If you dont explore the huge potential of Syntex and you use and store a lot of documents, you could be missing out on a great opportunity to reduce spend.
Common Syntex Use Cases:
  1. 1
    Accounts (Invoices, Reciepts, etc) - With the ability to extract customer details, dates and amounts, you can catagorise all your documents, as well as automate the related business processing ensuring all steps are taken at the right time.
  2. 2
    Order Processing - Simply uploading an order document into SharePoint either manually or via OCR (optical character recognition) could be the trigger to automate you order processing.
  3. 3
    Contract Renewals - Automatically remind your teams of dates held within any documents e.g Contract Renewals, Training Renewals and Review Dates.
  4. 4
    Automatically Create Documents - Remove the repetition involved in Creating multiple similar documents by using templates and auto populating with data from other files or data sources. 

"Knowing we can deploy an automated "librarian" & "document analyst" as one, is likely to be a huge game changer!" 

If - like us - you have a huge array of different content (videos and documents), knowing that you can analyse meta data, add tags, potentially re-route and update only certain parts of your library without having to manually check or build complex solutions, could be a game changer.  

  • Firstly, Syntex can analyse your content, looking for key pieces of information inside and associated to each item
  • Secondly, you can perform complex interactions, cataloguing and re-routing all within an intuitive interface using MS Syntex. (and a WHOLE LOT more...)

One thing we didn't want to do however is buy into a 'one trick pony' that could only catalogue our document metadata.

We wanted a tool that could pull in data, arrange, add to and complement our SharePoint information with sources outside of SharePoint. For example using OCR to digest our invoices and more. 

Microsoft Syntex allows us to do this and unlock a whole lot MORE besides.

If you are keen to know more about "how to solve a problem like content" in your organisation, this workshop is a must see. 

What You’ll learn from this Workshop:

Documents in SharePoint can contain vast amounts of valuable information. How can you mine this data without a huge manual 'trawl'?   If you haven't got rigid document processes or an army of people, golden insight is  lost.   This workshop will show you how to use Microsoft Syntex to overcome this problem and mine (plus action) your content with ease.

  • Introduction to Microsoft Syntex (as it is today).  
  • Get started with setup - how to setup the trial of Syntex in your environment and configuring the environment.
