Just wanted to add more info:

We are in the process of scanning all documents into a hard drive.  However, a colleague indicated to use scanners specific to this task and also some software interface or apps to manage the scanned documents.  We are not familiar with this, but it did gives some questions for what we want:

1. Are there scanner that scan fast 50+ pages (quantity in tray and speed scanning)
2. Does scanner comes with software for interfacing or managing the
    documents scanned?
3. Can we developed via VB or other coding, to access the scanner so it can
     detect when being scanned?
4. What features or questions should we consider for buying a scanner?  

These would basically help us on our search for the appropriate solution.

you would need a scanner with an automatic sheet feeder
http://www.newegg.com/Scanner-Document-Scanners/SubCategory/ID-634, they normally come with some basic software but truly managing the documents would be an exercise for the user.

Would appreciate you personal opinion on specs and the interface and viable to connect to the unit via VB apps.
