Recently, many companies are heading to move their systems to the cloud and slowly getting rid of on-premises systems with its overhead, in order to bring the focus on their core business. Microsoft office 365 offers several cloud services to assist companies in achieving so. SharePoint Online is Office 365 Document Management and Archiving service; built to help organizations manage their document lifecycle. Unlike other archiving systems, SharePoint is a platform, not a system, making it highly customizable for building archiving solutions that best fit your business's needs.
Although SharePoint provides document management and archiving services, it does not however offer tools to convert Hardcopies to Softcopies with metadata. This is exactly where Malaf Archiving comes in to fill the gap

Separation: This is the most challenging aspect of the capturing process; how do you combine related individual papers together in one file, as they are scanned individually by the scanner?
MALAF supports multiple methods to separate multiple individual papers and combine them into one or more documents. Use of the appropriate method depends on the following factors:
Below are the separation methods supported by Malaf:
Data Extraction: Malaf uses an OCR Engine to extract texts from the scanned images. The engine supports Arabic, English and a mix of the two languages. It also provides simple tools to define OCR templates, in order to recognize texts of created zones inside images.
Validation: There are many factors that affect the quality of extracted data; such as the quality of scanned images, and used scanner capabilities. MALAF contains a validation module to validate the quality of extracted data and manually filled data using two techniques.
Migration: After the documents are scanned and classified, the data extracted and validated, the next step is to push all documents to Office 365 SharePoint Online for archiving, collaboration and retrieval when necessary. Most SharePoint column types are supported, including text fields, text areas, number, date, choice, lookup among others. Malaf's role ends after the documents are synced to SharePoint Online.
Malaf uses Jacked to keep archieved documents aggregated and organized, and to distinguish data on geographical and managerial basis per area/employee/department/branch …etc. Every document will be organized for further approval, auditing, and archiving activities on different time basis (daily, monthly, yearly).
