What is Capture Technology?
An ideal ECM solution contains capture technology that can support and capture all file types. While scanning is a part of it, your ECM solution should capture much more than just physical paper records. All important content, whether electronic or on paper, needs to reside in one ECM system and allow you to maintain the native file type.
There are many different types of scanners and software to capture high volumes of documents right on location, such as in a shared services model.
Also, capture involves the classification and indexing of the documents which “tags” the documents with key data so you can easily find them upon searches.
