Historically the mailroom was a central collection point for documents coming into an organization. This led to centralized scanning solutions in the mailroom to capture the documents at source. Document delivery has changed over the years and now documents enter an organization through multiple channels and employees. To still capture documents at source, capture solutions need to provide low-cost scanning software and hardware and network-based scanning solutions. The recent move to remote working has increased the need to manage distributed document capture.
Electronic Document Capture
DocuNECT has long had powerful multi-channel electronic capture functionality, such as capture from email, DocuSign, file-shares and more. Now DocuNECT has partnered with Canon to provide a distributed scanning solution that can be cost effectively rolled out enterprise wide. This partnership makes DocuNECT a complete platform to drive your Digital Mailroom.
