Hello every one. I’m looking for a High Duty Document scanner that will give me the ability to use a Hand Held laser scanner to read a barcode that will label the file name of the Scanned PDF. Then I want to use FTP to push the PDF to the server! Any ideas?

You will probably but separate software for a ADF document scanner. How many documents per hour/day, average pages per document ? Document management systems can use 1 folder, many folders, SQL database or custom database to store files/data. Do you really need FTP or can you setup a fileshare. FTP feature may require other software to copy just the new files at the end of the day. Do you need realtime access to and from server ?

I think OmniPage Professional allows you to read barcodes on the page.

Check http://www.oimaging.co.uk/ BarCode Reader module - Detects a barcode on the scanned page and assigns the barcode value to the PDF name.

Any barcode reader can input the value as if someone typed it in. Set the software to prompt for the filename. At the prompt, scan the barcode, OK/"Save as".

I did a quick search for "barcode document management".

I seems that you want to do two scanning operations

1. Scan a document to PDF

2. Scan a bar code that corresponds to the pdf file scanned in step 1


Then, you want to insert use the scanned barcode to name the document. Finally, you want to send the file to the server.

Right?

Thanks for the responses. I had Xerox sales team hook me up with a barcode scanner software with our existing MFP..
