Documents Scanning & Auto-indexing

As companies become increasingly dedicated to digital initiatives, scanning is more often about making data more easily accessible and leveraging that data to garner insights or simply get business done in a more efficient manner. It is generally not just a desire to get rid of boxes and open up some office space.So, if you’re talking about newly-digitized documents being searchable and usable, they need to go through an auto-indexing process when they’re being scanned – optimizing and categorizing the documents for search. GRM views this process as central to helping organizations progress in their digital transformation.

Scanning With an Eye Toward Digital Transformation

Beyond simple scanning and auto-indexing in the conventional digital format, ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software can be employed as part of the scanning process; effectively identifying specific content within documents, enabling further searchability and extracting unique data from these newly-scanned documents and putting it in a structured format (think a specific piece of data being placed in an xls cell).

Once this is done, that data can be pushed into workflow solutions or mined and processed by valuable analytics solutions.

  • Automatic Document Feeders (ADF): These feed multiple pages into the scanner without manual intervention, ideal for bulk scanning tasks.
  • Document imaging software: This helps with the conversion of scanned documents into various file formats, optical character recognition (OCR), and indexing.
  • Barcode and patch code recognition: Helps in automating the process of file naming and sorting scanned documents.
  • Image enhancement tools: These improve the quality of scanned images, especially from older or degraded documents.
  • Large format scanners: For scanning items like blueprints or maps.

It's also worth noting that when considering equipment for bulk scanning, it's essential to factor in the daily scanning volume, required resolution, and desired post-scan processing features.
