GlobalCapture® for Sharp OSA®-enabled MFPs


Turn your Sharp OSA-enabled multifunction printer into an easy to use capture portal, automating the flow of your business information. With the Sharp OSA-developed GlobalCapture integration, users can access GlobalSearch® Enterprise Content Management capture workflow activities directly from the touch panel of a Sharp OSA-enabled MFP.

How it Works


Quickly use a variety of tools for automating image capture and distribution by extracting high value data from documents to automatically file to a GlobalSearch Archive.


Leverage the power of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) by converting scanned image files into Text Searchable PDFs, enabling users to search for records by content based on a keyword or phrase.


From the MFP, users can easily dictate where documents should be routed. Incorporate document routing, notifications and batch processing into scanning processes.


Either scan to an Inbox within GlobalSearch where documents are temporarily held or to a GlobalSearch Archive where they are directly stored to a Microsoft SQL database and permanently filed away.
