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.
