The Future of Scanning

Capture and Scan, Key Drivers and Improvements for Business


Scanning and capture is very common practice in many areas of business while conversion of documents for personal productivity to very large enterprise production environments continues to show marked growth. Business process automation activities and initiatives permeate the greater IT conversation as a means to reduce cost, accelerate workflow and transform processes.

Scanning has emerged as not only a means to digitize paper but, with the aid of solutions, a sophisticated method of capturing information, automatically identifying and organizing it. Specific processes that are very tied to regulation or compliance are especially sensitive to the use of solutions that can meet initiatives internally and externally. While scanning and capture is quite pervasive, paper is still present in many departments and areas of business, often used as means to communicate, capture information and even signatures on forms.

InfoTrends looks to understand what the future holds for document scanning and capture solutions and the associated devices as business is faced with more and more demands to be digital, entirely.
