Document imaging, what is it?
Posted by James Robshaw on 20 July 2006 02:47 PM

Document imaging is a technology that converts paper into an electronic form, where it can be automated using standard computer technology. By capturing paper documents as electronic images stored by the computer, all the benefits and power of database, email, networking, fax and storage technology can be applied to what was once manually processed information. 

Image documents can be electronically filed using multiple indexes and filing methods, and can then be quickly and easily searched and retrieved. Image documents can be shared among multiple users that are both local and distributed across the hall or halfway around the world with equal ease.

With ExeScan Document Management, an individual can use a PC to transform any paper or fax based information into an electronic image document that can be stored, filed, retrieved, edited, printed, emailed, faxed and shared. This eliminates the need to manage and store paper documents, such as hand-written meeting notes, memoranda, letters, personal medical and insurance records, receipts, business cards and newsclips. NB (some document originals may need to be kept for legal reasons).
