Scanning for data
I am looking into scanning say 5k per day of 1/3ed A4 (99*297mm) documents with about 2 or 3 check boxes plus some printed text showing 3 fields of originator’s name/ref etc. I would like to import the data directly into Omnis plus be able to save a pdf of each document with a suitable reference to the document in the file name. We could be looking at scanning hundreds of thousands or perhaps millions but would need to start small and be able to quickly scale later if the demand builds up, adding more scanners and work stations.
This is outside my current knowledge and I am hoping someone has some experience of doing this and can point me in the right direction re scanners and how to do it?
Do you see any problem using .df1 file which I am familiar with rather than SQL with this sort of volume?
