Easy In, Easy Out

Capitalise on your investments, and put existing scanners to use. PaperFlow interfaces with hundreds of desktop and production-level scanners right out of the box. Automatically import information from existing systems, and capture documents from fax servers, fax machines and multifunctional devices. PaperFlow can scan and store documents on any media and export image and index information to a wide variety of document management systems. Through seamless integration, PaperFlow partners with PaperVision Enterprise and ImageSilo for a comprehensive Digitech Systems ECM solution.

Speed and Accuracy

PaperFlow enhances efficiency with innovative and timesaving features which take full advantage of production-level scanners running at their full rated speeds of 400 images per minute or faster. A customisable document indexing tool lets the user define acceptable index parameters to ensure accuracy. Extensive auto-formatting and verification procedures minimise keystrokes while support for barcodes, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and handwriting recognition eliminates keystrokes altogether. Extract information from existing databases, and use it to populate indexes automatically with match and merge capabilities. Automation simplifies time-consuming processes, such as image cleanup and document exports.

Rapid Deployment

Immediately improve productivity and performance without extensive new product training. Setup takes minutes, as PaperFlow’s point-and-click interface is easy to use and requires no coding or scripting. Predefined import and export formats create built-in functionality for immediate results with virtually any ECM system. Tailor system functionality for specific users, such as scan or data entry operators, and make use of keyboard shortcuts or “hot keys” for one-touch execution. Centralised administration simplifies project setup and ongoing management.

Unlimited Scalability

No matter how you conduct business, PaperFlow can scale to meet your needs. Scanning can be handled in one centralised location, simultaneously in various locations throughout an organisation or offsite as an outsourced service. Establish any number of scanning stations for a departmental or corporate-wide installation. Create production-level operations with unlimited system users, scanning projects and images. Automated imaging activities can be scheduled to occur at any time, even during off-peak hours. Because of its unlimited scanning and indexing capabilities, companies whose livelihoods depend on consistent, quality scanning choose PaperFlow.
