Imaging and Capture: The First Steps to Unlocking Your Data
Information has become an asset that is just as valuable as intellectual property, capital equipment, or real estate for many enterprises. Despite the transition to digital business processes across industries, much vital data is still locked up in paper documents. Advanced imaging and document management systems are crucial to unlocking that data so that the enterprise system can benefit; but only if the imaging process takes a next-level approach to data capture.
In the modern business environment, data is currency.
Imaging and document management solutions aren’t just expected to collect pretty images and metadata these days; they must perform a variety of critical data management and analysis tasks that can help enable digital processes across the enterprise. Digital transformation initiatives rely on these capabilities, as they allow companies to convert paper documents into both digital information and actionable business insights.
Those requirements include:
- reading document-based information,
- separating and classifying documents during the imaging process,
- extracting relevant information from those documents,
- validating that information and
- pushing the data to enterprise systems.
Data captured from the influx of paper in organizations only has value as it is integrated with digital information and then analyzed and shared across the entire enterprise.
Document imaging initiatives should look beyond simple data capture when it comes to potential operational benefits.
All of that said, scanning and capture are still the first steps in your organization’s digital transformation.
