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
