3 Ways to Improve Intelligent Capture with Human Touch

While digital information accuracy is important to all document preservation, some institutions benefit from it more than others. Intelligent Information Management (IIM) and paperless offices are sufficient for most businesses, but if the content is important for historical or informational purposes rather than a backup, the quick and easy options for digitization don’t always do the trick. There are serious pitfalls of intelligent capture, especially if a precise representation of the document’s content is important to a collection, such as legal documents, documents used for research and reference, or a historical document collection like a digital library. In these cases, human factors can never be replaced by technology because of the intelligence and problem-solving care experts possess. Whether the end result is for a paperless office or a collection of documents, the metadata, organization, and hands-on human approach can make the resulting digital library much more accurate and efficient.

Capturing Paper Documents - Best Practices and Common Questions

What is Capture? Despite technology, most companies continue to struggle to manage the burden of paper in many important business processes. And while there are many technological approaches to digital transformation, the first step is often scanning. Also known as “capture,” this capability is characterized by the ability to scan paper documents to store and use them in digital form instead of paper. First developed over 30 years ago, capture systems have evolved from simple solutions for basic scanning into sophisticated and expensive systems for enterprise-wide document automation. Therefore, it's important to understand and leverage scanning as a fundamental tool for business today.

Overcoming the Challenge of Unstructured Information

According to AIIM research, 75% of the organizations we surveyed view digital transformation as “important” or “very important” to their organization. Survey respondents point to techniques like advanced data capture, machine learning, and process automation to provide the powerful potential to reengineer and improve core business processes. The trouble, however, is that that the majority of information capture and content management solutions on the market have been built to work with highly-structured and pre-determined information and workflows. Feedback from our AIIM community of practitioners tells us that working with unstructured information is one of the biggest barriers to digital transformation.

Four Best Practices to Guide Your Intelligent Automation Journey

There is a growing disconnect in organizations between their desire for process automation and the information that is needed to drive those processes. 54% of the information needed within a particular business application is stored within the application itself rather than within a dedicated content repository, a percentage that has remained remarkably consistent over the past five years.

Capture? Haven't we been doing this for years?

Capture? Haven’t we been doing this for years and years? Well…yes and no. Yes, organizations have been scanning paper into digital archives for a long time. And for 72% of organizations, scanning paper is still the most important part of their information capture strategy. The continued importance of simply getting rid of the paper is not just a function of laggard organizations; the struggle to get rid of paper is consistent across all levels of overall competence.

How Document Scanning Can Improve Productivity at Your Workplace

Companies are always looking for ways to make their workplace more productive and efficient and to reduce costs. Document management has an important part to play here. A survey conducted in 2012 showed that 21.3% of losses in employee productivity are due to paper-based documentation challenges that businesses go through. Converting your paper files into digital files via document scanning services can really help in alleviating the nuisance of managing paperwork at the office. While some documents do need to be printed, digitization can considerably increase your workplace productivity. With document scanning businesses, you can achieve superior efficiency, better systems for storage and retrieval and greater security controls. Let’s take a deeper look into how digitization can prove to be beneficial for your business.
