  • There are no volume scanning restrictions when using EzeScan, you can scan 200 or 200,000 documents a week, month or year, it makes no difference.

Capture Data From Your Documents & Speed Up Data Entry

  • To make scanned documents really useful, the documents need to be filed with relevant indexing information.
  • This will enable you to quickly search for and find those documents later on.
  • In a simple filing system, documents were stored in folders, and limited metadata was manually data entered like ‘Title or ‘Description’.
  • But today with the advent of Document Management Systems this has been expanded with the addition of Document Types (e.g. Invoice) and multiple indexes (Invoice number, date, supplier, total).
  • EzeScan can be easily configured to work with simple filing requirements, or more specific EDRMS requirements.
  • Indexing metadata can be manually data entered, or automatically captured from forms using EzeScan’s built-in recognition engines.
  • Recognition Engines include:
    • OCR (Type characters)
    • ICR (Handwriting)
    • OMR (Tick boxes)
    • BCR (Barcodes)
    • MICR (Magnetic ink characters)
    • MICR can be used to capture Magnetic ink character data off scanned cheques.
  • Smart OCR (Supplier Invoice Processing)
  • Utilizing recognition engines to read indexing data, will typically help reduce data entry to a mere fraction of those keystrokes required for manual data entry.

Save Time & Automate Document Scanning

  • Production scanning tends to consist of fairly repetitive tasks.
  • Those tasks include batch document preparation, scanning, QA, indexing, storing documents.
  • EzeScan can be used to create simple jobs to process these tasks.
  • Those jobs are presented in a ‘Job Button’ interface, which makes it easy to run jobs over and over again.
  • Optimal document quality is enhanced through the use of automated image enhancements like deskew, despeckle, crop, erase, delete blank pages, auto rotate.
  • Using these features, helps to reduce the need for excessive quality assurance, which therefore eliminates the need to rescan poor quality documents.
  • Use recognition engines (OCR, ICR, BCR, OMR, MICR) to build highly automated data capture workflows.
  • Apply strict data verification rules to all field data thereby ensuring good quality data is captured.
  • Utilize ODBC lookups to further validate metadata against legacy systems.
  • The ‘automation’ options ensure that documents are processed efficiently, with little or no human intervention.

Push Valuable Data Into Line Of Business Applications

  • EzeScan creates images & metadata for every document processed.
  • Images can be created in any of the following output file formats

    • PDF
    • PDF/A-1a (Image + Text Searchable)
    • PDF/A-1b (Image Only)
    • JPEG
    • PNG formats.
  • Metadata can be output in custom txt, csv or xml format so it can be sent to any legacy system.
  • Use your legacy systems import tool to pull the images + metadata into your legacy system.
