Image, Forms, Document Capture

Buyers' Guide

Document conversion has a stinky reputation of being: (1.) Expensive; (2.) disruptive; and (3.) difficult to cost-justify. One of the reasons is that, historically, imaging is thought of in a very binary way. You either image, or you don't. No gray area.
But that mood is changing. What used to be the final act in a business process—scan the paper and shred it—is increasingly at the "front-end" of the process, and is tied to the ensuing businessprocess...whatever it might be. . . .

About a year ago, Dr. Michael Koenig wrote in these pages that unlike many business “fads,” knowledge management didn’t fall into the typical 10-year pattern of boom and bust, with four or five years of explosive growth, followed by a slightly longer period of almost equally dramatic decline. His conclusion: KM is here to stay. Posted March 01, 2007

About 11 years ago, a group of us were starting to ask ourselves whether all this "information management stuff" might have a greater purpose than merely to store information in a file server somewhere. That maybe—just maybe—information could be applied to the type of work and to the level of decision-making taking place in business at such a famously accelerated pace. And in providing that information to the right person at the right time, the promise of a truly knowledge-based economy could be realized. In the 10 years since ImagingWorld became KMWorld magazine, we've tried to address the discipline (practice? theory? religion?) of knowledge management from each of its well-known constituent components—people, process, technology.

Document imaging technology, for all of its benefits to organizations previously burdened with paper processing and storage costs, is an incomplete solution. The next challenge lies in making the digitized content available to all constituencies in a convenient, ubiquitous, controlled and personalized fashion. Document imaging technology coupled with workflow automation software provides an established vehicle for capturing, managing and storing structured and unstructured information. Organizations with high-volume throughput requirements, manually processed information transactions or requirements for highly controlled information routing and approvals have been the primary beneficiaries of document imaging and workflow processing systems.

Trendset, a provider of advanced freight accounting and payment solutions, found itself stymied by a daily mountain of paperwork that severely limited the number of documents it could process for its customers. However, the deployment of ABBYY’s FlexiCapture Studio software has dramatically changed Trendset’s data processing operations. In fact, Trendset’s data entry operation is far more productive than it ever was. The Problem: A Daily Mountain of Paperwork One of the most important services provided by Trendset is pre-auditing, which is by far the most efficient form of freight bill inspection. Enabled by proprietary Web-based accounting programs, Trendset’s pre-auditing of freight bills is an ongoing process of checks and balances. Posted July 13, 2006

Paper is not going away. The goal of the paperless office is still a dream to most businesses. The reality is that most organizations are still dependent on paper-based transactions. Bid proposals, purchase orders, invoices, printed and hand-written forms and legal documents continue to consume reams upon reams of paper. Consider the examples of mortgage applications or insurance claim files which contain hundreds of pages each. Many organizational and operational issues originate from our continued dependence on paper, including the high cost of paper storage and the costly inefficiencies Posted July 13, 2006

I'm sitting in the press "lounge" at the AIIM show in Philadelphia, thinking about imaging. I'm somewhat sheepish to confess that I haven't thought this much about imaging since this time last year. Sitting in the press lounge. At AIIM. But that's not because imaging has diminished somehow as a viable marketplace. It hasn't. Nor should it suggest that there aren't still many opportunities for business managers to benefit from automated document capture. There are. And it should not indicate that I haven't been paying attention to imaging as a technology and a business solution. I have. It's just that imaging has—at long last—fulfilled its destiny. It has disappeared into the everyday. I used to address a lot of audiences at imaging conferences. There was a story I always told that, I thought, profoundly represented the reality of imaging versus its promise. Stop me if you've heard this... Posted July 13, 2006
