Scanning Technologies Ltd supply software solutions that are suitable for a variety
of applications. These range from simple Archival Solutions through to the most powerful
Knowledge Management / Capture products available to the market today.
For us, the decision cycle is driven by a review of your specific requirements. We
will take you through the options to help you select the best & most cost effective
way forward. We will also be on hand to support the installation / implementation
phases, so you will end up with the best possible solution regardless of whether
you are a small office or a large multi-site organisation.
Archival scanning solutions are typified by the ranks of filing cabinets found in
many organisations where the office is over-run storing paper documents essential
for commercial / legislative / compliance reasons. Often described as Closed File
systems, these products allow you to set up a scanning regime that takes the paperwork
out of the system at a practical point in the workflow thereby removing the requirement
to store old paper files. Image-based archives are the cheapest & most common solution
used by businesses and pay back their initial investment very quickly.
Electronic Document Management solutions(or content management / digital asset management
/ workflow / records management / e-Discovery). The multitude of descriptions describes
the wide range of different applications types available. They can be extremely
effective for particular business requirements but, unfortunately, are frequently
mis-sold – Usually an excessive number of features that look good & promise the earth
but are never fully implemented by the end user. With over 20 years’ experience
with these technologies, we are always happy to discuss your options.
Integration or Image Capture tools provide a variety of approaches that allow for
scanned images to be routed to a wide range of different back office systems. These
may include email products such as Exchange or Lotus Notes, as well as Electronic
Document Management products such as EMC Documentum, Microsoft SharePoint, OpenText
and HP Autonomy.
Within the legal / financial services marketplace, Scanning Technologies Ltd also
directly support several bespoke 3rd party database solutions. For example, Lawyers
using LawWare / LawCloud, Elite's Envision and the VisualFiles’ (SolCase) products
can now scan directly to the PMS using our own ImageBrowser SCANNING software or
rapidly input pre-existing images generated by Digital Copiers / MFD's.
