I haven't used it, but a company here in upstate New York produces a
combination of hardware and software called DOCSTAR -- for DOCument STorage
And Retrieval. Basically, it's a pc with a scanner, printer, OCR, etc.,
with optical storage disks to hold a *lot* of documents. You can put it on
a network, I know. It might be a bit less expensive than many other systems.
The company is Bitwise, and their phone number is (518) 356-9740.
But in the short term, I like the idea of stamping page numbers to save time...
