Plain and simple - just wondering if anyone knows of a document management solution in place in a sharepoint site.  Just basic document retrieval - so you load a ton of images (jpg or pdf or whatever) assign them each "keywords" and then are able to search on them based on all of those keywords.  Keywords could be things like date, amount, address, account number, SSN, first name, last name etc etc...

I agree with the previous expert in terms of making the metadata searchable.

If you need a solution for how to get your document images into SharePoint (rather than just uploading them through the browser interface and typing in the metadata) then you might consider a third-party product such as Kofax Express (http://www.kofax.com/document-scanning-software/) which would manage the whole process for you e.g.

Scan the document -> prompt you for the metadata -> upload the document and submit the metadata
