Merops workflows

The best way to use Merops… is your way.

How you use Merops is up to you. No pre-tagging or styling is necessary, so Merops can fit into your workflow at any stage. Merops can be used straight out of the box, or we can work with you to meet your precise requirements using the Merops API.

Merops workflows

Processing and tracking

The processing power of Merops, whether it's for document analysis, automatic editing, or automatic markup, comes from the Merops Cloud. This provides a consistent and powerful AI that's updated regularly. Documents can be processed manually from your desktop, or automatically using watch folders or the Merops API.

Merops Desktop

Merops Desktop can process individual files, or batches, and can even process up to 4 files simultaneously. Thanks to the Merops Cloud, you don't need a powerful PC, and you can work on other things while documents are processed.

Processing can also be started from within Microsoft Word, using the Merops plug-in.

Merops Watchfolders

Merops Watchfolders

Merops can automatically process documents when they’re placed in a watch folder (also known as a hot folder). Individual folders can have specific processing settings and output locations. Watch folders can be on a local machine, a network, or even an FTP site.

Once processing starts, it can be tracked with Merops Desktop.

Merops API

Merops API

The Merops API allows you to integrate document processing into a new or existing bespoke workflow, managed from a server you control. Documents can be submitted, progress tracked, and outputs loaded and passed on to your content management system or another third-party solution. Contact us for more information.

Multiple input options

Out of the box, Merops can process Microsoft Word documents (both *.docx and *.doc), RTF, and plain text files. We can also help you create a bespoke workflow using the Merops API, to process groups of files as one document (e.g. front matter, body, and tables), zipped folders (*.zip), XML, PDF, or HTML, and more.

Multiple input options

Review and edit

Depending on your needs, you might want to review and edit documents after processing. You may want to ensure recognition and changes are accurate, respond to suggestions from Merops or queries for missing information, or you may need to fully copy-edit the document. Merops makes this easy with a plug-in for Microsoft Word, which comes with powerful reviewing tools.

If your final output is XML, PDF, or HTML, you can edit a colour-coded document in Word, then update your output automatically.

Multiple output options

Merops comes installed with the ability to create Microsoft Word documents, and XML.

Processing stages

Merops Desktop

One step

Whether you’re using Merops for document analysis, automatic editing, or automatic markup, this can happen in a single automated process, with no pre-tagging or styling required.

Merops Watchfolders

Multiple steps

For some workflows, you might want multiple processing steps. If XML is required, you might process the document once, review a colour-coded document to check recognition and respond to Merops queries, then reprocess the document to produce the finished XML file.

Merops API

Parallel

Multiple processes can be run simultaneously. For example, you can use the Merops API to extract and deliver metadata in under 10 seconds, while Merops continues to process the rest of the document and deliver a fully edited document one minute later.
