New E-Doc Management Deployment

We are planning on automating the processing of about 400 documents
per day. Currently, of course, everything is paper, routed through
several offices manually. We hope to start recording the documents
electronically before the end of the year. The documents are invoices
and packing slips, we do not require a high degree of legal validity
of the images, as we will be storing the paper originals.

I am considering getting two Kodak i80 scanners and a Ricoh eCabinet.
I do not have much time, so I'm looking for a semi-turnkey solution.
I just want to get the docs scanned in, indexed on a few key fields,
and stored; and have them easily located and viewed by the various
offices. We have a lot of other concepts for future uses of this

Is the eCabinet appropriate for this situation? Are there
alternatives I should consider? What really makes it worth the
approx. $10,000? We are new to this, any advise would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Joe,

Are you looking for a windows or web-based solution?

$10,000 is a lot, but things to take in to consideration when paying that
kind of money are the things you plan to do in the future with a document
management system. You'll want to be able to scale the software up at some
point, you will want to be able to customize it now or at some point, is the
application using a proprietary format, are the docs being stored as blobs
in a database (bad in my opinion), etc.

If you want a simple solution at first and then be able scale up later,
check out eDocShare by visiting
It definitely will not cost you $10k

Joe - LGX Document
is another alternative. Our approach is to provide a fairly simple
Document Management solution built on .NET and XML technology, but
with a twist. It is built with a tool
acts as a easy to use SDK so it can be customized by us or you without
going into "source code" or through an API.
