DpuScan 4.11 at the DMS
Expo 2004 in Essen
DpuArchive was launched as part of the
latest release of DpuScan 4.11 at the DMS show in Essen Germany
in September 2004. This new facility adds a powerful Document
Archiving & Retrieval System, using a built in SQL database
at no additional cost.
At DMS an example of
DpuScan 4.11 with DpuArchive was demonstrated showing how a
public transport company had completed a Passenger Movement
The passengers where
interviewed and the results entered onto paper forms. The form
contained details of the bus number; all stops on the route and
the type of ticket purchased, the interviewer then put a cross in
the relevant boxes & manually entered the fare paid. For
passengers who started their journey outside the public
transports companys area, the interviewer notes the start
point on the questionnaire.
DpuScan 4.11 (with
DpuArchive) was used to scan the questionnaires, the line numbers
were then evaluated by OCR, the new OMR-PlugIn evaluated the data
marked with a cross, and the new ICR-PlugIn evaluated the fares,
so everything was prepared for archiving. By using the
Index-PlugIn the start positions outside the area could be added,
the rare errors of OCR/ICR could be corrected. The completed data
was then exported to DpuArchive where the passenger referendum
survey was then available for direct access.
With this application example, several
new functions of DpuScan 4.11 could be presented at one time. In
total, however, besides many enhancements in the detail, the
following innovations are now available:
- Wizard for creating standard
configurations. Here, the target systems can already be
selected from a list of renouned DMS suppliers. The user
can enlarge this list by himself.
- Query of user name and password for
restricted access is possible, optionally.
- Job Flow control by import and
export of OpenJobs, but also possible by job status
- PlugIn for recognition of Datamatrix
- PlugIn for recognition of PDF417 2D
- PlugIn for recognition of marks
- PlugIn for recognition of hand
- PlugIn for ODBC query in databases,
for example to validate index data, or to read additional
- DpuArchive with Client/Server
database, is included as standard with every DpuScan 4.11
license. Annotations can be added to archived documents.
Index data criteria can be added during indexing with
DpuScan, or indexed retrospectively in DpuArchive.
DpuScan & DpuArchive offers unrestricted usage, only
requiring a DpuScan 4.11 license; these features are
available on all versions of DpuScan from smallest GL16
to the full Gold version.
DpuScan 4.11 will be available from
October 2004 on.
