Automation from Scanning to DMS creation

Hi Friends,

Is there any link bringing scanning doc. into DMS. What process we are following scanning the doc. in a local file. Then create a DMS & attaching. Then releasing the DMS document. The problems while creating doc. are:

1. We can attach the same file twice

2. There is no control for duplicate chk

Is there any software which will connects the scanning & DMS directly and create DMS doc. automatically. In this process is it possible to read certain data in invoce & enter the same in DMS fields.

Why I am looking this process is we will be doing scanning of 1000docs of various doc. types . In each invoice there will be 20pages. Chances of error will be much in manual process.

You can create more than one logical repository on the same content server for different storage areas.

In standard invoice verification, archivelink is supposed to be used which is why there is no option for DMS.

You can add characteristics to the workflow tasks that you are using the workflow the document around, its not necessary to have classification to do this. Alternatively, you could use a ztable.

In reality, very few of the professional accounts payable solutions use DMS, or none of the high end ones. If you want to create a good AP solution then you should be using archivelink.
