Tuning ECM Capture Systems – Is It Optional?

Recognizing forms and then performing successful OCR and ICR is a result of careful planning.   Then comes plenty of testing during development, exploiting every advantage you can discover.  Once rolling, are the results what you expect?  All of that testing should ensure the answer is YES.  But if they are falling short of expectation, it’s time to tune.  Are image enhancement/preprocessing settings set optimally (or are they in place at all?).  Are alphanumeric fields defined in such a way that the OCR engines aren’t trying to discern zeros from letter O’s?  For handwriting, do forms have text instructions coaching the users how to write ‘between the lines’?  Are you matching expected data with available dictionaries encompassing all possible entries?  These are just a few of the questions to ask while tuning a paper capture system.  At ImageSource, we’ll work to resolve recognition problems you are experiencing to maximize your ROI and data throughput.

The Future of ECM Support and Web Based Distributed Capture

Now that there are scanning applications that live on the internet troubleshooting and client side desktop support just got a whole lot easier. No more patching individual workstatiScan on the Internetons and mix matched versions on client desk tops. No more problems accessing and taking up disk space. No more OS compatibility issues. Web based applications is the future of ECM and those of us in Technical Support are embracing the expansion of web based scanning applications such as ILINX Capture and  Oracle Distributed Capture.

So Much Paper! So Little Space!

We have all seen it in one office or another…the rows and towers of banker boxes filling the corner of the room. The outside of boxes try to convey the critical document information such as names, dates, times, etc. but are looking a bit haggard from being moved around the office so many times. The best way to gain your space back is a document scanning solution. There are record management systems using production scanners, Fujitsu or Bowe Bell & Howell scanners. With the help of ImageSource Inc you can have your confidential material scanned and critical information electronically saved. The time you spend now is the space you will gain back to help your company be competitive and efficient.

Benefits of Remote Services for ECM Support

Would you land a plane in dense fog without radar?   Probably not, so why can it be difficult to get support representatives of  major software manufactures to dial in and assess critical business ECM servers to aid with troubleshooting?  I recently worked with a large ECM company that told me “Before that occurs ( dialing in ) … the customer needs to have the understanding that all we would be doing is observing the issue and that no troubleshooting or resolution recommendations would occur”.

What kind of a response it that!  I literally thought it was a joke.  I brought this to the attention of the technician’s manager and he agreed with his staff and said to me that in some occasions a remote session is the very first request (and occasionally only info) in new service requests.  He went on to tell me that occasionally something like – “my system isn’t working start a web session so I can show you”.   is frustrating for them because it is easy to get trapped into a complete unknown situation with no measurable exit strategy.  This can turn a quick 30 minute dial up session into an all day ordeal burning multiple resources at the expense of their other customer’s Service Request”.  So, they don’t want to help you because it may take up too much time?Continue reading
