DocuPage Pro v4.0

We've updated our flagship image tagging and upload tool for DocuShare users with new capabilities to make it more versatile than before. String manipulations let you use a substring of characters in titles or metadata and in collection names. Now you can file documents by range (e.g. 1200 - 1299) based on data you enter about the document, such as a medical record number. You can save documents or create collections using date and/or time formatted the way you please (e.g. file by yyyyMM as in "2013-12").
Processed files can now be moved to a new folder so that you can use the same input folder over and over and not have to change to another folder or clean it up between batches. You can now view previously processed batch reports and check the content intake errors folder to verify that DocuShare is processing your batches without problems.

  • Expression manipulations for string values
  • New "format" option for date and time
  • New Move-To folder for processed images.
  • New Report menu option for displaying ...
  • Reports for previously submitted batch uploads
  • Content Intake Logs Folder to confirm uploads
  • Delete button to remove image files (junk faxes, etc.)
  • Better zooming and rotation features

DocuPage Pro works directly with DocuShare's content intake mode as well as in remote entry situations where you can upload and file documents using DocuShare scripts or via FTP in combination with content intake. DocuPage Pro is an important component in an overall data capture and document management environment. While tagging is performed manually, it's a good low cost solution for small batches. For somewhat larger batches of semi-structured documents we recommend you consider Recognition Server and use the included Indexing station which allows you to select text and numbers from the page which fills in the fields for you. For larger batches or forms with data located in the same place we recommend ABBYY FlexiCapture which captures the data, fills in the fields, and prompts you to check on values that it suspect may be wrong. That's the fastest way to gather data and upload it using our DAVupDoc tool.

Network Scanners

We've created a unique category for network scanners on our site so you don't have to browse and search much to find them.
The Fujitsu fi-6010N iScanner is the most fully functional network scanner on the market and has a real keyboard rather than a touch screen. Both the Fujitsu fi-6010N and N1800 scanners work with ABBYY's TouchTo software. You can get more info on TouchTo at and watch the online video showing how it works. It could be an important component of your overall data capture environment.

Paper sizes explained

This is mostly about European paper sizes like A4 and A3, but touches upon U.S. Letter and other sizes, too. Deriving "A" sizes is actually pretty interesting. This is a nearly ten minute video, so unwrap that sandwich and put your feet up. Brought to you by YouTube.

Looking at clouds lately?

Reading and hearing about the NSA hacking into everything from phone calls, internet traffic, email, and even phone synchronizations including your contacts gives pause to moving any services to Internet service providers. Keeping all your traffic in-house and behind your firewall is obviously more secure. Using security certificates or VPN for public and private clouds address this by encrypting all transfers over the Internet between users and systems. Public clouds share server resources among multiple accounts and private clouds use one or more dedicate servers per account. Obviously, the latter choice would cost more but probably not secure your data from prying eyes any more than a public cloud offering would.
