Auto-Import Station for DM Dokumenten Management GmbH

DM Dokumenten Management logoDM Dokumenten Management GmbH provides complete document management solutions. One of its clients is Wüstenrot-Gruppe, an Austrian-based company providing financial and real-estate services. DM developed and installed a system for the mass capture of various documents for them. This system was based on the ABBYY FormReader 6.0 Enterprise Edition which is a distributed software for document capture that consists of different types of stations. Some stations are responsible for scanning, others for OCR, verification, data validation, system management, and release.

Wustenrot logoAs its input front-end, the system uses industrial scanners that are not directly compatible with ABBYY FormReader 6.0 Enterprise Edition Scanning Station. This way, the images are captured using the software bundled with the scanners, and stored as multi-page TIFF files. After that they must be automatically imported. Although ABBYY FormReader 6.0 Enterprise Edition Scanning Station has the import-from-folder feature, its functionality did not satisfy the system's requirements.

In search of a solution, DM contacted ATAPY Software. Based on its profound knowledge of ABBYY products, ATAPY was able to write a new component for the system named Auto-Import Station (AIS). AIS replaces the Scanning Station and, as far as the rest of the system is concerned, imitates its behavior. The solution was successfully installed at Wüstenrot and demonstrated impressive performance.
