Another big part of ECM is image capture: the ability to handle a (potentially huge) volume of FAX and scanning.

It's particularly important to be able to index the images - as quickly - and as reliably - as possible.

I noticed this link (very recent - about 6 months ago) about Kofax and Alfresco working together to integrate Ascent's Capture:

How is the Kofax integration going?

What other ways does Alfresco deal with "image capture"?

Thank you in advance .. PSM

Alfresco integrates with various image capturing systems. This adds to the flexibility, and provides intelligent forms processing that result in greater control and management of crucial information and documents, within and outside the firewall.

You can implement an OCR solution within Alfresco using the transformations framework. There is a product called "Tiger OCR" which has a integrated bundle with Alfresco.

The "Kofax Ascent integration" allows documents to be captured and stored in Alfresco, enabling customers to review and approve documents for long term archival or records management purposes.

Using "eCopy Alfresco connector", any documents can be scanned directly to a selected Alfresco repository using your eCopy enabled digital copier or scanner.

All the above solutions are available today.
