Data Capture Software: Integration Modules

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Read on to find out more about the latest data capture software developed by Hyland Software, Inc.  OnBase® is an integrated suite of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software solutions built upon on a central content repository.  Customers from small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) to the world’s largest enterprises use OnBase to drive down the cost and time it takes to complete business processes, reduce their susceptibility to risk, and comply with government regulations.

Introducing new or additional technology into a business infrastructure represents a long-term commitment to overcome particular challenges or to improve the way in which the business operates.  The process of selecting that technology should result in the identification of a true solution.  A true solution should not only prove its capability of meeting the challenges of the business, but should also assimilate into that business in a way that is not only non-intrusive, but actually enriches the value of surrounding technologies and processes.

The OnBase solution has been developed in real business environments where the need for integration with other technologies has been a key factor for both user and organizational acceptance.  OnBase provides a dual-threaded approach to integrating with other technologies.  Specific product integrations with industry leading applications and platforms will continue to remain at the forefront of the OnBase solution.  OnBase can be embedded into Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes, for example.  This kind of integration enables large numbers of users to add an extra dimension to their information resources while remaining in a widely accepted, established software experience.

Capture Software: OnBase Application Enabler

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

The latest in capture software is the OnBase Application Enabler, a product that seamlessly integrates software applications with OnBase.  This non-intrusive integration is achieved without the need for API programming, scripting, or modifications to the user’s application.  Since this interaction can be completed by a simple point-and-click configuration, administrators can create custom integrations that perfectly match their users’ requirements and are flexible enough to change and evolve alongside the business.

Documents can be retrieved from the OnBase repository directly from within the enterprise application.  Those documents can then be reviewed, cross-referenced, annotated, and managed utilizing all available OnBase functions.  In addition to these document management functions, Application Enabler can deliver Workflow execution functionality to the line-of-business application.  Data within an application can be passed to an OnBase workflow for evaluation, processing, and routing.  This data can be configured to trigger or participate within a business process.

The Application Enabler can use the documents and metadata ‘mapped’ to the user’s screens for importing documents into the OnBase system.  For example, Application Enabler can generate indexing bar code sheets with data from the User’s application.  This functionality not only enables businesses to incorporate paper-based documents into their content management system, but also to link those documents directly with data residing in the application.

If scanning is interrupted due to a misfeed, the Rapid Recovery System allows you to reposition the document and seamlessly continue scanning right where you left off, sending only complete image data to the PC.

Includes new Straight Path feeding mechanism for scanning documents of unusual size and weight, including plastic ID cards, driver’s licenses and insurance cards.

The DR5010C inherits Canon’s renowned high-precision roller system to deliver smooth, jam-free feeding of a wide variety of document types, from small plastic cards up to 11″ x 17″ paper documents.

Document Scanning Technology: Graphtec CS1100 Large Format Scanner

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Continuing our discussion of the latest in document scanning technology, today we will focus specifically on the CS 1100 large format scanner. The CS1100 allows you to select from 200 dpi to 800 dpi interpolated resolution to suit the complexity of your drawing and your scanning application. In addition to monochrome drawings, the CS1100 scanner also supports 256-level grayscale and 256-color data input for sharp, clear scanning of even the most detailed images.

Features
The CS1100 large format scanner accurately scans drawings for GIS, mapping, CAD, and document archiving as well as civil engineering applications. Detailed road maps and contour maps including extra-long documents are scanned at an accuracy of ±0.1% ±5 pixels.

A new high-pressure hold down unit is now available with the CS1100 scanner for enhanced scanning accuracy and image quality when scanning old (deteriorated) documents with creases. Check out the CS1100 Series accessories/supplies section for more details!

Use Graphtec’s Scanning Master Copy Color software to reproduce high-quality drawings that are faithful to the original. This software also enables you to connect the CS1100 Series Scanner to your favorite printer or plotter to create a large format color copier.

The CS1100 large format scanner now ships with user-friendly automatic calibration software.

With conventional color scanners, 24-bit full color data is scanned in and used as-is, resulting in large files containing more data than necessary. The color depth reduction function included in the CS1100 Series helps to eliminate this problem by reducing the wide 24-bit color spectrum with its 16.7 million colors to the 256 colors of the more practical 8-bit color spectrum, making the data much more manageable and shortening the overall processing time. You can select Standard or Optimized when creating the initial settings. You can also change the colors after the data has been scanned in using Graphtec’s high-performance scanner driver (Scanning Master 21+) which comes standard with the CS1100 large format scanners and helps to facilitate scanner setup and control.
