This is based on a conversation with a DocuShare customer three weeks ago and
I thought it worth sharing. He was looking over some of our DocuShare
enablers and wanted to understand his options.
You have a lot of options. Being on CPX and having the OCR module means you
could scan documents into a common collection, open them with the View Documents
and Properties option under the blue triangle to the far right, rename them and
enter searchable metadata, close the properties, and cut/paste them where you
want them to go. Content rules could be used to determine if they're Tiff or PDF
files and OCR them for full-text search.
Full text search is fine if the OCR results are clean and you don't mind
a lot of documents you're not looking for. Metadata allows searches with more
You can also have your users create DocuShare scan cover pages with proper
titles and metadata and have the documents end up where you want them. Combine
this with content rules for OCR and that works pretty well, but still requires
navigating about in DocuShare to create cover sheets where you want your files
DocuPage Pro allows you to set up templates for your various document types that
renames your files, sets metadata, and uploads them where they belong. This
makes filing very easy by selecting your scanned files, keying or selecting data
from drop down lists, and hitting Send. Content rules and the DocuShare OCR
add-on would make them full-text searchable, when desired. DocuPage Pro is $594
per PC including one year of support and maintenance.
ABBYY's Recognition Server allows for centralized maintenance and setup of
workflows so that it would pick up documents scanned to a particular folder, OCR
them, and export them to another folder for DocuShare to import into a single
collection. By using the Indexing Station that comes with Recognition Server you
can select the document type and enter the metadata for each scanned document
and have it export the documents with a CSV file that our DAVupDoc autofiles for
you in the same way as DocuPage Pro. There's also a Verification Station
included so that you can make corrections to the content you'll be full-text
searching on. ABBYY Recognition Server starts at $1850 with a 100K/year license
plus $370 annual support & maintenance. DAVupDoc is $1495 + $299 annual support
& maintenance. This makes OCR available to everyone in your organization through
shared folders, email, http, and ftp with better results than the OmniPage based
software offered by Xerox. Some scripting and setup would be required for this.
ABBYY's FlexiCapture can automatically capture information from various document
types even when it appears in different places on the page as is common for
invoices and purchase orders. It has the ability to hunt down information and
capture it. It also reads handwriting, checkmarks, barcodes, and can verify the
presence or absence of signatures. FlexiCapture starts at $3000 plus $600 annual
support & maintenance. It has more capability than OCR-in-a-box solutions. We
also use DAVupDoc to autofile the documents to DocuShare with a unique name,
metadata, and where you want it.
Your best option depends on how you want to use your current resources and
whether you want much of the process automated for you.
Please call if you want to discuss your options further. There are trials
available from our www.criteriafirstware.com site and from ABBYY through us, so
give us an idea which methodology or two you'd like to discuss.
