Key information for both users and decision makers regarding Xerox DocuShare and ABBYY
We've been learning Xerox' new DocuShare eForms
module and thought you might be interested in seeing
an overview of this. You can create forms to post on
your website for internal personnel and customers
around the world to fill in and submit. The form is
automatically filed away and you can export the data
for use in other systems. This could work in tandem
with paper forms or independently.

Can FlexiCapture Standalone run in
"lights out" mode?
Can hotfolders and exports be configured for
importing, recognizing, and exporting documents
without user intervention using FlexiCapture 9.0
Standalone? Yes, but be sure before you do this that
you'll either be pleased with the results or have
another means available to correct erroneous data
that might be captured. I wouldn't recommend this for
handprinted text, but if your data is largely
represented in clear text and barcodes you could be
very pleased with the results and throughput.
- An Image Import profile should be set with a
hotfolder and Autochecking turned on.
- Check "Enable auto export" in the Export
Settings of the document definition and turn off
"Need verification" in the Verification tab for
- Create a Batch Profile and click on the
Workflow tab. Check "Export batch automatically".
- If you have multiple document definitions and
want to eliminate mismatches, make sure your
document definitions' static layers require
matching specific text such as a header or form ID.
Be more organized at home or be the most productive
worker in your office. Scan in your personal
documents and save them on your PC in a searchable,
indexed manner so you can find them when you need
them. Scan in year-end listings of tax information as
Word documents or Excel spreadsheets to present to
your CPA or just capture them as PDFs. I do this
combined with Copernic Desktop Professional so that I
can locate documents easily on my PC even when I'd
filed them somewhere other than where I'd expect to
find them. Copernic is the best of the desktop search
engines and comes in a free version with a little
adware to tolerate as you become familiar with it and
consider paying $40 for the Professional edition. It
also searches through Outlook and your browser
favorites as well as the Internet.
We've recently added portable scanners to our store
with very competitive prices so that you can pick one
that's right for you based on your home office or
travel needs. There's a version of the Fujitsu
ScanSnap 1500 that comes bundled with a trial version
of Rack2-Filer for additional organizational
capability. We like Nuance PaperPort for
personal document management and image editing for
scans and photos. Go with PaperPort Professional for
scanning to searchable PDFs so Copernic can find your
documents based on words and phrases within them.
Some of our DocuMate scanners come bundled with
PaperPort, but you'll have to upgrade to the
Professional edition if you want searchable PDFs.

portable and desktop scanners to see whether one
