Criteria First chooses Access Formatta for e-forms applications

We know that you can't always purchase DocuShare for your electronic forms solution, as good as it is for the money and integrated functionality, so I set upon a quest to find another e-forms solution that is versatile, robust, and reasonably priced.  I thought I would be overwhelmed by my choices, but I was not.  I look around and see all kinds of uses for e-forms and cannot understand why more organizations are not implementing this technology.  Hospitals appear to have caught on before all others due to compliance and chain of command issues.  They have to be certain that tasks are completed and data is captured.  Wouldn't you like to see that tasks are being completed properly in a timely manner?  e-Forms are the vehicle for that.  One installation could serve multiple departments in your organization.  We still have a way to correctly archive the final form in DocuShare and can assist with other content management systems.  For more information, grab some brochures from our CriteriaFirstWare store and call or write for more information and a demonstration.

KM World - ECM: solutions for diverse content

This article appears in the issue: June 2012 [Volume 21, Issue 6]

This article speaks to the Ventura County print center's creation of job ticketing software that interfaces with DocuShare for storage of printable material. If you have a need for such an interface, please let us know as we're considering working on this.

Tax season is behind us - feel like shredding anything?

We carry only mid to high volume shredders for business use.  Avoid strip shredders and use only crosscut shredders.

ABBYY adds to its mobile portfolio

Scan documents and business cards for your contacts database. FineScanner for iOS is available from the Apple App Store. This will make you feel like James Bond, but try not to get in trouble spying. Image capture on newer smartphones is becoming an important function of distributed image and data capture systems. Email your document photos for conversion using Recogntion Server or to capture data using FlexiCapture.

Scantron Cognition - upgrade to ABBYY FlexiCapture 10 and get a discount

Scantron used to resell ABBYY FormReader 6.5 under their own label as Cognition. We can help you upgrade your previous templates and forms to FlexiCapture and enable you with many new features and better recognition.  If you've been using Cognition, call us for a 5% discount on FlexiCapture and for our support services to assist with the upgrade and implementation of new features.

FS2DS with file date correction

Did I mention that when migrating content from your PCs and file servers to DocuShare that you can retain the last modified date from your source and have that appear as your date in DocuShare?  You lose perspective on the age and usefulness of your documents when everything added to DocuShare shows your migration date.  This is a utility we ship with FS2DS that your DocuShare administrator should be able to run.  It doesn't take long to restore the dates after you've uploaded your file server contents.  Check out our FS2DS User Guide on for more insight on this.
