Pros: Great product with very advanced features. Awesome Pricing! Call ChronoScan or M-Files direct and get a Demo you will be happy you did.

Cons: Least liked the part of ChronoScan is that no one knows who they are "YET". Do you have Accounts Payables "AP/AR", Sales Orders, or any other use case you can think of regarding large ingestion of digital/physical documentation at your company?

Overall: Advance Capturing

Support has been absolutely fantastic. Was assisted to get done exactly what I needed.

Pros: Support is incredible, software works much better than expected and did not need to do any major changes to my documents. Changed some fonts as the old font was really not OCR friendly. Using it daily to file all our signed delivery notes and this has made it incredibly easy for our staff to find them and email the document to clients for any queries.

Cons: I wish I understood more of the features of the software, and need to find time to learn more about it as I am certain it can simplify much of our capturing in the future.

Overall: hugely reduced time in filing documents. Saved a huge amount of money by not needing a filing person.

Easy to use. Incredible time saver for those who deal with large amounts of paper.

Pros: I like how I can scan and organize my documents in minutes, as opposed to hours. I love how it's free for non-commercial, personal use. Allows me to be able to Scan/Index large sets of documents and to extract text from PDF Files and convert to indexed data.

Cons: For my purposes, this software works perfectly. I think for heavier users, there could be issues with renaming files, having the same name of files in the same page and font type transferring appropriately.

Great product and support. Many enhancements developed, including full processing of Excel docs.

Pros: The program's ability to be virtually used in any application. The staff is available and can make the software work in any application; for example, the software now allows for fixed length output configurations because they listened to what I needed and pushed it out with the next update release. Thank you!

Cons: Visually, the program could be improved. Buttons are small and duplicate buttons are available causing overuse of space. Unless you have several of hours of using and testing the software in a specific application, it is somewhat difficult to understand at first.

Overall: Increased time efficiency

Pros: Robust, Easy to configure, Lightweight, and scalable. Chronoscan can be deployed for small to large organizations. Their expertise speaks for itself in the product set. Their focus will take them far.

Cons: The new enterprise UI is by far one of the cleanest UIs in the capture market. I would recommend that the support for International languages can be easily configured from UI standpoint.
