As technology improves, the process of document imaging continues to evolve. Here are some game-changing technological and market developments to watch, courtesy of ingrammicroadvisor.com:
- Do more for less: With scanner prices falling and software becoming more efficient, companies considering document imaging might find it more affordable – and more advantageous – than it was a few years ago.
- Smarter capture: Recent technological advances mean that data capture is no longer limited to structured forms, such as tax returns, insurance claims and other standardized documents. Thanks to better hardware and software, other forms – including patient records, X-rays and older documents – can be captured and converted to searchable, electronic files.
- The growth of the cloud: Interest in the cloud as a part of the document imaging industry continues to grow. It offers more options for storage and retrieval, and with bandwidth constantly expanding, it becomes more viable for even smaller businesses.
- The growth of mobile capture: The adoption of mobile capture is accelerating, and though – at this point in time – it doesn’t work as a complete solution to document imaging demands, it is becoming an increasingly important part of a multi-channel document imaging strategy.
