Many ECM organizations use a tool such as InputAccel or Kofax for scanning. While these solutions are great for high volume bulk scanning and centralized scanning models, they can be expensive and overly complex for simple decentralized scanning needs.
OpenCapture provides a configurable web-based approach that allows users to easily scan and upload documents directly into a content repository. A simple interface provides intuitive user controls for scanning documents, performing image manipulations such as rotations and crops, and setting metadata. Available metadata fields for document indexing can be configured based on the document type.
Additionally, connectors are available for the user to launch OpenCapture directly from Documentum Webtop and Alfresco Share. The connectors detect the user’s current folder location and automatically upload content to this location. Once the scanning process is complete, the user can return right back to the view from which OpenCapture was initially launched.
