Trumpet, the makers of Symphony Suite, an application that automatically OCRs every file within your Worldox repository, recently completed updates to Symphony OCR versions 5.4.0 and earlier which includes several new features we think will help firms.

The new Symphony OCR Version 6.0 includes:

  • New document priortization levels
  • Ability to specify when each profile group should be OCRed
  • Better backlog reporting (explicitly display page usage in past year, recommended license size)
  • Ability to report on backlog progress for each profile group
  • Streamlined installation (Client ID and Partner ID data entry eliminated)
  • Page count will now reset on anniversary date, not January 1
  • User interface overhaul with consistent page layout and links to online knowledge books
  • Consistent heartbeat error/warning reporting

Symphony OCR upgrade instructions:

These steps assume that you have received an email instructing you to update your Symphony installation.  Depending on the update notification, that email may contain your client code and/or license number.

  • Connect to the workstation that Symphony OCR is running on (this is usually the indexer PC)
  • From the upper right-hand corner of the Symphony OCR main page, click the ‘Check for Updates’ link.  Save to your desktop
  • Double-click the Symphony OCR installer
  • Click “Next”, then “I Agree”
  • Leave the installation folder as the default, then click “Next”
  • After the installation completes, leave the ‘”Start Symphony OCR” checkbox checked, then click “Finish”
  • Symphony OCR will launch
