How To Install Perceptive Content EP4 (version 7.7)

Perceptive Content is an electronic document imaging and management system for scanning, indexing, and retrieval of documents.  Experience is the name of the browser-based version of Content.

  • The Perceptive Content client is only available for Windows.  
  • Mac users who do not need to scan documents may use the web version of Content called Experience.

Using Experience in the Chrome Browser

Experience is the browser-based version of Content. It has all the features of the desktop client except the ability to import documents.  Chrome is the recommended browser. Get to it from http://go.perceptivecontent/ or at this link: Experience.

Mac users who do not need to scan documents may use the web version of Content without any special configuration. Occasional Mac users should use Remote Desktop Services (RDS).

If you already have a version of Perceptive Content installed on your computer, please uninstall that version before installing the Perceptive Content EP4 version. If you do not have a previous version installed, please go straight to the “Install the Software via Company Portal” section on this page.
