DocsCorp Releases New Compression Module for Its contentCrawler Automated Framework

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DocsCorp (, a global leader in document productivity software for document management professionals, announced today it has released a new module for contentCrawler, its integrated analysis, processing and reporting framework.

The Compression module gives IT Administrators the ability to significantly reduce large document file sizes in a content repository as an automated backend process. A content repository could be a document management system, SharePoint or a Windows file system. Reducing document file size reduces storage costs and speeds up file transfers when downloading or sending these documents via email.

Super smart technology:

contentCrawler analyzes documents based on a particular search query and compression or OCR thresholds specified by the IT Administrator. It then processes the documents that meet the criteria and saves them back into the content repository, replacing the originals with smaller, fully text-searchable files.

“In the case of the Compression module, contentCrawler will identify documents where a certain level of compression is achievable. It then compresses these documents as a backend process, freeing up space for other documents to be added,” explains DocsCorp President and co-founder, Dean Sappey.

“Providing a backend service like contentCrawler delivers huge benefits in terms of efficiency, productivity as well as cost savings.”

Multi-process service:

contentCrawler is an end-to-end automated solution that runs 24/7 without staff intervention, taking advantage of 4, 8, 16 and 32 CPU cores for concurrent processing. Staff do not have to worry about OCR or Compression processes or workflows. Instead contentCrawler works in Backlog mode for legacy documents and Active monitoring for recently profiled documents. It can also work in both modes simultaneously.

contentCrawler integration:

contentCrawler integrates with leading document management systems including iManage, HP TRIM, OpenText eDOCS, OpenText Content Server, Worldox, ProLaw, SharePoint and Windows file systems.
