Store all your documents in a filing cabinet, then retrieve them by keywords or from
the cabinet or folder, or by a description given when the document was captured. View the document via a
network. Print, Fax or email the document. We have now added the remote indexing feature in which a document
is scanned with no human intervention. The document is automatically routed to an Incoming Mail folder.
A traffic controller can then access this folder at his/her leisure and either route the document to
another person for them to index, or index and store the document directly into the Docman filing
system. This speeds up capture and allows a greater volume to be captured because the scanner can
work at full capacity while a number of people can index the captured documents.
The latest development in DocScan is interfacing with other technologies.
The first interface we have created is to ZetaFax®. Zetafax® is an Windows® based fax server
capable of handling
up to 60 incoming fax lines simultaneously. We have created an autotimer facility which polls all the
incoming fax lines at a specified interval, copies the incoming fax, converts it to a multipage
tif file and then places it in the incoming mail folder. From there it is treated as laid out above.
This has resulted in a huge reduction in the amount of paper generated. An insurance broker handling
in excess of 3000 claims per month has reduced his paper consumption costs from R17 000 per month to R1 000
per month by replacing his standalone fax machines with Zetafax® and our document management system.
