Data Capture Alchemist Tom Stuart Joins MagicLamp Software Solutions

Posted on April 19th, 2017 News

HALIFAX – MagicLamp Software Solutions is extremely excited to welcome Tom Stuart to their senior management team. Tom is a technology innovator and thought leader with decades of experience. During his 20+ years in the industry, he has developed and improved data capture technologies, including, unique image indexing systems, data entry automation technology, and strategies to capture unstructured documents.

Tom has joined MagicLamp as Vice President, Development where he is responsible for product and software development, pre-sales, training and mentoring staff, and project trouble-shooting.

Tom recently retired from a very successful career at IBM. During his time there, he was part of the North America Software Advanced Technology team. His responsibilities included developing easy-to-replicate techniques that helped customers deploy complex data capture applications that integrated with other business applications and enterprise systems.

While at IBM, he was also closely involved with refining prototype solutions and was the application developer responsible for IBM Datacap Taskmaster Accounts Payable Capture and the IBM Datacap product Taskmaster Flex.

Prior to working for IBM, Tom was Vice President of Solutions at Datacap, and an industry innovator in data capture. For over 14 years, Tom developed and evolved data capture software until IBM acquired Datacap in 2010.

“I couldn’t stay retired for very long,” stated Tom. “Data capture is in my blood. I had worked with MagicLamp in the past and was very impressed. They’re an innovative software development company that is pushing the boundaries of data capture. I wanted to be part of their growth, and support their work with key clients like Abercrombie and Fitch.”

Tom has joined an established software development company that has a variety of clients in areas such as retail, insurance, banking, and manufacturing. MagicLamp is an IBM Gold Business Partner and focuses in a variety of areas within Enterprise Content Management. Their realistic software solutions for business process automation supports line-of-business needs in areas such as accounts payable, sales order management and human resources.

“We are so thrilled to have Tom join our family,” says Scott Power, Senior Partner of MagicLamp. “Tom is a true leader and innovator in data capture. He’ll have a significant impact on the company, the solutions we provide our clients, and our relationship with IBM. We’re also excited to have him pass on his knowledge and understanding to our ever-growing team of developers in offices around the world.”

Tom officially started with MagicLamp on April 3. He, along with others on the MagicLamp team, will be at the APP2P and ARO2C Conferences in Orlando, Florida next month. At ARO2C, he will be speaking on a panel called “How to get the biggest bang for your automation buck”. Tom is excited to be in front of a crowd again since he’s been an active speaker over the years, and is looking forward to representing MagicLamp on stage. He will also be at the MagicLamp booth during both conferences.
