More Flexibility in Choosing Your Input Medium for Windream Archive

Share Article

Users of the Windream archival system now have more flexibility when it comes to capturing paper documents. This flexibility was made possible thanks to the capture middleware AutoStore Workflow from NSi. NSi extends the capabilities of various multifunctional devices and scanners turning them into an input medium that can now be used by Windream as well.

Notable Solutions, Inc. has added an interface to its AutoStore Workflow that connects it to Windream Document Management System (DMS). The new component is already available as part of the standard functionalities offered by the AutoStore software. Thanks to this integration, a Windream user can use a wide range of commonly used multifunctional devices and scanners to capture documents directly into Windream.

AutoStore-enabled scanning devices are very easy to operate. With only a few clicks, a user can build paths, rename files and send images to a specified destination with metadata attached.

For small and medium size businesses:

The largest beneficiaries of AutoStore enhancements are small and medium size organizations who use compact DMS solutions provided by Windream. "It is the small and the medium size businesses who are interested in document management -- at an affordable price," says Enno Lückel, COO of NSi Europe. The combination of Windream and AutoStore enables them to do so." NSi data capture solution is also scalable, ranging from the "lite" version, AutoStore Express at a price of only a few hundred dollars to the full-service enterprise version. The license is obtained per device -- not per page count.

"Windream products fit ideally into the AutoStore Workflow product suite which as a 'lite' verision meets the needs of not only large organizations but those of smaller and medium-size businesses," says Enno Lückel, COO of NSi Europe GmbH.
