RE: scanners/Philip Hellerman
For the purposes of an intranet, scanning legacy documents with a desktop
scanner may not be the correct way to go, especially if there are hundreds of
My recommendation:
1. If the number of documents is high, consider an outside vendor with high
speed scanning equipment.
2. There is no such thing as scanning into MS/Word format. Bypass Word and take
a look at Adobe Acrobat.
3. Check out Imaging Magazine ( They cover document
management solutions for business.
They have reviewed desktop scanning equipment, but also cover high speed
duplexing scanners and software to access the images.
4. If a page-at-a-time desktop scanner seems right for the task afterall, I
recommend the Umax machines. Nice price, Adobe software bundles and better than
average imaging.
