Help choosing a scanner
Posted on 2011-09-22
I am really lost here... I need to choose a scanner for my office, but i dont really know anything about specifications, whether they are good or bad... I basically need to scan documents like old bills, and some other financial documents to have a digital copy and clear the space...
The problem is, there are a LOT of papers, and we cant afford to keep manually scanning one by one...
I was in a meeting with this guy and he told me his product could automatically scan the papers I put in (both pages) and it could use something like OCR to detect what kind of document it is and put it into a specific folder to organize the documents. I was really skeptical about this, but i thought it was a great ideia... But then I took a look into DMS (document management system) and I think that may be the solution we need.
Can you explain to me what exactly can DMS do?? Is it just to organize the digital paperwork and make it easier to find them?? How hard is it to integrate it with a scanner??
And at last: what combination of DMS and scanner would you recommend??
Thanks in advance.
