July 8, 2010 – Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has selected Brainware Distiller for the automated categorization and indexing of microfilm and microfiche documents.

In their press release titled, “Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Chooses Brainware Distiller™ for Automated Document Processing” released on PR Newswire, they state LLNL will utilize Brainware’s intelligent data capture solution to automatically sort documents and extract specific data from up to 900,000 pages of microfilm and microfiche annually.  Funded primarily by the United States Department of Energy, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was established in 1952 to meet urgent national security needs by advancing nuclear weapons science and technology.  Today they employ over 6,000 people and house some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers. Capturing this quantity of data for proper indexing along with the vital security nature of the data is a massive job. Brainware’s Chief  Executive Officer, Carl Mergele, believes

“Distiller stands alone in its ability to extract relevant pieces of data from large quantities of documents, regardless of their layout.  By automating an otherwise labor-intensive process, Lawrence Livermore is freeing up dollars better spent on protecting the nation and developing alternative energy solutions for the future.”
