SoftTrac ScanDS

ibml' SoftTrac® ScanDS is a scanning solution that enables organizations to centralize information management, leverage a common interface across their scanners, and take advantage of optional in-line OCR, barcode recognition and document classification capabilities previously only available on ibml's ImageTrac® scanners.

SoftTrac ScanDS operates the ImageTracDS scanners from ibml as well as many TWAIN-compatible scanners from other manufacturers. It easily co-exists with other capture software and downstream solutions in either a distributed or centralized scanning environment.

Complementing ECM platforms and traditional scanning solutions, SoftTrac ScanDS delivers efficiencies and process improvements, helps ensure regulatory compliance and document tracking and control, and allows organizations to more easily standardize their scanning operations and the information that they provide.
