BCT Germany, a leading provider of document processing software, and amberSearch, developer of an AI-powered enterprise search engine, announce their strategic partnership. This collaboration aims to enable more efficient knowledge management for companies in the DACH region. By integrating amberSearch technology into BCT’s distribution network, customers can now benefit from a powerful, AI-driven solution that revolutionises enterprise-wide information search and analysis.

Challenges in corporate information management

Which service provider actually supplies me with a particular product? Who has the shortest delivery time and the most favourable price? Answering such efficiency questions is often very time-consuming for companies. Documents have to be manually searched for, sifted through and compared. Many partners and customers of the Aachen-based digital office expert BCT Germany would also like a search solution that automatically checks all internal company documents and provides clarity in a matter of seconds.

The German-language corporate search engine amberSearch does just that: whether in the email inbox, intranet, DMS or on the company server – the software’s artificial intelligence (AI) searches through all data and presents the requested information quickly, easily and clearly, including the source.

Efficient knowledge management for everyone

Convinced of the great benefits of this sensible process optimisation, BCT Germany, provider of intelligent document processing software, is now supporting its site colleagues in the distribution of its solution. “In the DACH region alone, we have over seventy partners from the ECM, ERP and hardware sectors as well as from the consulting and system house sector. They can now offer their customers even more efficient information management,” says Khaled Daftari, Partner Manager at BCT Germany, describing the user-centred value of collaboration.

AI-supported search function for intuitive use

“Searchers don’t need to know where information is stored, nor do they need to familiarise themselves with the search logic of different systems,” emphasises Bastian Maiworm, one of the Managing Directors at amberSearch. Similar to AI chatbots – such as ChatGPT – they can simply type their questions into the search engine and further specify the results using follow-up questions if required. This means that employees always receive the right information from all available sources and can make quick, well-founded decisions. “This leads to significantly more efficient business processes and transparent collaboration between the various business units,” concludes Maiworm.

Synergy of technologies enables knowledge management 2.0

“Our software solutions complement each other seamlessly and take knowledge management to a new level within any organisation, regardless of its industry and size,” continues Daftari. “BCT’s Essentials platform handles the automated and intelligent processing of all business documents and also makes analogue data machine-readable. amberSearch searches and compares this and other stored information and delivers clear search results at lightning speed.”

Focus on data protection & security

The providers know that legal and data security play an overriding role in internal company searches. It goes without saying that amberSearch is GDPR-compliant and the solution’s cloud is located on secure servers in Germany.
