Document Management

A Document Management System (DMS) is a system (both hardware and software) used to track, manage and store documents and reduce paper. Most are capable of keeping a record of the various versions created and modified by different users (history tracking). It is often viewed as a component of enterprise content management (ECM) systems and related to digital asset management, document imaging, workflow systems and records management systems.

Need to combine OCR generate fields into meaningful values.

I have an OCR engine working well as it generates a space delimited text file. But the small fragment need to be combined into something meaningful as a form of post processing.

For example, the text on the page says:

VS DB DB Business Card - Retail

But in space delimited form, this is 7 fields.

I already have a finite list of about 25 possible strings, and can embed then in an array, such as

"VS DB CPS/Retail"
"VS DB DB Business Card - Retail"

so, I need to post-process the OCR generated file to be comma quote delimited, and use one of these pre-defined strings, when the OCR finds them.

What is a good paradigm for this?

Also, given this is OCR, there is a chance for a read error.

Thanks.

Learn SQL Server Core 2016

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

We are using Documentum 6.7 and have a new client product that isn't working very well.  It doesn't seem to be getting all the data expected.

We want to turn on tracing (which Documentum has had forever) and need help.  We can turn it on within a session, but this client is going to initiate it's own sessions.  We were hoping to add the entries in the server.ini file to turn it on, but aren't getting the entries right.  For some reason we can't find a single dfc.properties on the server and the server.ini is being used to specify DocBrokers, so we're hoping someone can tell us the entries to put in it to enable tracing and see the exact query the server is receiving.

Hi,

I have a client who wants to trace a document he email out.

the perfect solution would make him aware if the document was forwarded on, who by and who to. This would be to external recipients.

Is there a way to achieve this, without the recipients knowledge?

Thanks

Twain compatible home office MFPs.  We are testing the Paperport software with Brother MFC-9340CDW.  The reason for this was the Canon MX series scanner software was acting a bit wonky over the years and the printer is five years old. We actually really like the MP Navigator software but as discussed in our previous thread, MP Navigator is no longer being made for the later MX series.  Thus, we were turned on to Paperport document management software.  It came with the Brother MFC-9340CDW.  Though, I don't think it works with network shares unless I upgrade but I digress.  Anyway, my question is...  Could I have avoided maybe purchasing new hardware and just bought better document management software?  The reason I ask is Paperport prompted me to connect with the Canon hardware using Twain.  Did I just assume most 100 or $200 MFP weren't TWAIN compatible?  A google query of Canon MX twain shows nothing of the sort.  The better question is how common is Twain compatibility (is there a list?) so I can push Document Management software on to some of my other clients?  They too have horrible document management software.

Can anyone help me solve below problem:

I have over 2000 png images saved in different files on my computer. I want to write a VBScript function that does something like go to a particular folder and iteratively copy-paste all the png files in that folder to a PDF file or word document .

1. The header before pasting the png files in the word document should be same as the folder name.
2.  The .png files should be inserted in order of when they got created. That is the first created .png file will be first inserted and the last will be last inserted in the word or PDF file.
3. Upon successful copy of all the .png files in this folder,  the folder should be deleted.

Any assistance if this is possible will be appreciated

Let me explain

There are multiple sub folders which contains tiff images, lets take in a particular folder there could be 2 or more images which needs to be combined as one image.
I tried the basic concept and it works

i was also trying to use the below , not sure how far good.

for %f in (%cd% D:\subfolders\) do (convert 0007.tif 0011_623.tif +append 1_merged.tif)

We need to start digitizing some of our paper processes.

Basically, we'd like to print invoices and pack slips to PDF (or scan them), while automatically renaming the files based on PO number and/or order number (based on OCR?). Bonus if they automatically print after saving the PDF copy.

What can do this? Or is this even possible??

Thanks in advance!

I have an issue with all the Fillable PDF Forms, if I log in through terminal server into my shared Drives (we use Terminal servers for offsite users) and open any Fillable PDF Forms the fields are all blank but if I go directly to those forms on the share drive while I'm on the network without using TS all the forms are filled, the form were created on computers with Windows as an operating system (not a MAC), Both the Adobe Acrobat reader on the local machines and the terminal server are (Adobe Acrobat Reader DC) Version 2018.011.22.8, both have identical Adobe reader settings so I'm not sure what is causing the issue

I want a local based office documents management system, I don't mind on a local nas server or something like that. We have a lot of sales employees who get a take invoices and receipts. and it just keeps piling up. I think a paperless office is the way office. scan it, shred it, search and use it anytime.

some features I can find online:

1. Approval Workflow

An invoice, a vacation application or another document needs to be approved by one or several people before next steps?

2. Sharing

Share documents, folders, sections or even the whole account to anyone you like. With "View" permissions they can only see the document; with "Edit" they can also edit the meta data.

3. Notifications

Set and get automatic notifications for changes in documents, folders or sections as often as you choose.

4. File versions

You can upload a new version of a document and preserve the existing metadata and all earlier versions of the file

5. Reminders

Whenever you need a notification at a certain date and time, just set up a reminder!


6. Powerful search

We have built in a powerful search so you can search documents not only by the file name but also document's title and metadata,

Hi all,

I've spent the last week googling about open source document management systems to try to work out which one to settle on for a documents business. Users of the system require documentation from clients and the other service providers … I've read a little of Alfresco, nuxeo and and logicaldoc and am trying to work out which one is best to base thing on so any advice  on this appreciated…  a lot of the information I've read on websites is at least a few years old

Ideally I want a good quality open source software I can then develop to my needs. I'm a little wary the open source nature of Alfresco may go the way of SugarCRM given one article I read https://medium.com/mathias-conradt/dumping-alfresco-for-nuxeo-as-my-preferred-document-management-system-2116cf421d36  but im not sure how much this should influence my decision.   … here is what I'm looking for …

I envisage an ideal system to be something along the lines of … main users could send documentation requests to clients via a browser link by email & text message … message would list documents required. From the browser, clients can upload documents to their custom repository by drag and drop or file selection from their computer. Client’s interaction with system would simply be web based. Documents are all converted to pdf within the process and stored in the system separately but can be presented back to the user as a single multipage pdf. The system should allow easy categorisation of  the documents …

I've created a very basic fillable pdf form out of an excel sheet.  I am having trouble with two different columns of fields. Other columns of fields with the exact same properties do not have these problems.  Here is the problem:

When I test the form, in either Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro or Adobe Reader, I try to delete numbers from the fields after I enter them (to see if ctrl+z can be used to backup a step). I can delete information from some of the fields this way, but others will not delete. If I try to delete using Edit-->Undo, it lets me click edit/undo, but the information is still in the field.  When I go back to the field and click on it, the data disappears. When I click somewhere else in the form, that same data reappears.  I've searched online and the only similar problem seems to be data that is not shown in a field until clicked. Mine is sort of opposite. "Deleted" data shows in a field until you click it.

Thanks for your help.

This server hosts a document management system based on SQL, but also has a large directory of documents.  The program offers full text indexing of the documents using the server's indexing service.  There are currently just over 1 million documents included in that index.  We have started having issues with the index developing corruption, at which point the server detects it and starts a reindex.  With the number of documents that indexing takes several days.  The directory with the catalog (in ProgramData) is excluded from backup and from antivirus scanning.  I can't find any definitive reason for the corruption.  I also can't find any definitive advice on the recommended size or number of documents for the service to work well.  Does anyone have experience using the index service for very large numbers of documents?  Does it work well?  Are there any reasons for the corruption that I might be overlooking?  Thanks!

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

Hi,
I'm looking for a collaborative platform for my enterprise.
The platforme must mainly include:
  • Project and Task Management/Tracking
  • Activity stream
  • Knowledge Base Management
  • Document Management (co-edition, versionning...)
  • Time Management
I've tested and really loved www.bitrix24.com but the fact is that it's  not include an offline mode so our employees cannot access their task queue when internet access is out of hand.

Can someone propose me a platform that matchs these requirements??


Regards.
