Document digitization involves the scanning of “everyday paperwork”: economic, tax, and law documents, contracts, bank transaction receipts etc. that usually reside in large binders in closets, making access, finding and indexing almost impossible and raising serious security and conservation questions.
For years now, the answer to the problem is specialized document scanning. This kind of digitization is carried out by large high-speed scanners, and also by book scanners when there is a need for bound material scan. Further post-processing usually involves OCR (optical character recognition) and metadata enrichment in order to gracefully integrate the assets in document management, ERP and Business Intelligence Systems allowing search (even full-text), taxonomy and distribution of the information. All these assets are available to their users (usually inside a LAN or a VPN) through the forementioned systems that vary in complexity and implementation effort according to each use.
