What Is AppEnhancer?

OpenText AppEnhancer is the leading enterprise content management (ECM) software for small and medium-sized businesses. It further enhances business processes by taking your content and transforming it into actionable information.

Two common deployments of AppEnhancer are to streamline accounts payable (AP) and new employee onboarding along with other HR functions. Once established in one department, many organizations then deploy the software in others to leverage the initial investment, share the costs, and optimize processes on a greater scale.

How Does AppEnhancer Work?

AppEnhancer “enhances your app” by adding document management as well as workflow automation to your back-end core system. It allows you to scan documents, capture email and attachments, store them in a database, establish the right access per user and document, quickly search and retrieve them, and apply retention scheduling over the life of each document.

With AppEnhancer, your team can seamlessly manage documents within your main “app” – whether you use accounting software, enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, a loan origination system (LOS), electronic medical/health record (EMR/EHR) system, or other back-end software.

What Features Does AppEnhancer Offer?

  • Information Security: Leverage robust information controls, such as watermarking, rights expiration, and guest access.
  • Information Rights Management: Secure sensitive information even after it exits the repository or passes beyond the organizational firewall with information rights management.
  • Access Control: Specify which users or groups of users can access information with document field-level precision.
  • User-Driven Controls: Empower end users to revoke or alter access permissions to sensitive information with dynamic information controls.
  • Version Control: Ensure only the current version of a document is accessible to users.

What Is the Role of MetaSource with AppEnhancer?

MetaSource is the largest distributor of OpenText AppEnhancer in North America, enabling and supporting AppEnhancer value-added resellers (VARs).

Our team has worked with AppEnhancer since its inception with OTG in the early 1990s. We now work with OpenText, which acquired AppEnhancer from Dell EMC, and provide input on the document management software’s ongoing development roadmap.

Not to mention, we’re one of the largest users of AppEnhancer in our business process outsourcing (BPO) operation. And we’ve also developed “Cloud AppEnhancer” called MetaStor, which offers the same features as AppEnhancer.
