Open Source Capture / Scanning Document Management advice
Posted on 2011-04-24
This is one I've been googling for some time, and failed to find a solution. My basic needs are the ability to scan in household documents from a multi-page feed scanner, and easily add the documents in to a management system, with the ability to predefine 'document types' with possible data fields. I will also need to be able to append to existing files.
So for example, I will start a document for my electricity bills for the whole of 2011. The document type would be a predefined as 'Household Bill'. There would be data fields for 'Provider' and 'Account Number', which I'd fill out at scan time. I would add new bills that came in to this file over the year, by using an append function.
I've looked at loads of systems, but most seem focused on already digitised files, or can do scanning with the addon of an expensive commercial plug-in (such as Kofax). Does anyone have any further suggestions as to a Open Source project that would achieve this?
Many thanks :D
