See what Athento can do for you

Athento is smart

  • Automatically extracts the content of any document (be it something as complex as a contract, or as simple as an invoice) and deduces labels and keywords to categorize the document (even if the keywords are not included in the text of the document). (See Document Capture)
  • Rapid, efficient and straightforward document capture.
  • Classifies documents in the correct folder without human intervention, as it can assign the document to pre-established categories (such as contracts, invoices, budgets, records, shipments, and payroll) and subtypes (type of contract, type of records etc.).(See Document Capture)
  • It uses semantic technology, natural language processing (NLP) and image processing to carry out reasoning and interpretation of the information contained in documents. The system uses these experience to create a self-learning framework.

Athento is efficient

  • You can process groups of more than 100,000 documents per day using several scanners simultaneously, then process them in the same way as a human would.
  • Reduced data extraction time in a document goes from eight minutes to five seconds.
  • By automating classification and document recognition, data extraction and improving search times, Athento can save your business up to 98% of cost.
  • Need to show your colleagues - in numbers - how efficient information management isn't just economical, it's also necessary? Download a free whitepaper that contains a case study on the CRISA (Aeronatutical Industry) successful project. Download the PDF here.

Athento is safe

  • Athento uses encryption based on SSL / TLS to create an encrypted channel (whose encryption level depends on the server and the browser used by the customer) that is more suitable for sensitive data traffic than the HTTP protocol. This helps prevent hackers from accessing or using documents such as contracts, technical documentation or invoices that could be intercepted through the data transfer connection: all data is an encrypted stream that is impossible to decipher.
  • Allows access through Single Sign On, which enables the user to access multiple systems after identifying himself or herself once, thereby reducing the constant need for always using different passwords in the company.
  • Integrates digital signatures by using the most widely-used certificates and by incorporating signatures into processes/workflows, such as reviewing and signing contracts by various parties.
    This notably reduces costs related to printing, shipping and storing signed documents and the cost of looking after records or signed documents.
  • Cloud Computing. Athento can be deployed in different "clouds" such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, allowing SMEs to have world-class security in pay-per-use mode which; in turn, is increased incrementally and in proportion to the use of the system (number of users, number of documents). Athento, therefore, incorporates the latest technology for document security. It has also been deployed in various maximum security environments such as banks (BBVA, BNP Paribas, Cajasur, Cajasol etc.) as well as in various government agencies (General Traffic Directorate, Army, Directorate General of Police).
