“Best and most flexible document scanning and data capture software”

OverallAll incoming paper/mail documents are scanned through chronoscan. It classifies all document, adds a PDF text layer and exports the documents to the DMS and ERP system.
ProsFast and flexible, you can capture all data from all types of documents. Multiple OCR engines Web based (Enterprise version) Scalable of multiple servers/instances Advanced line/table capture options Support
ConsOnly OCR, no ICR (yet?) VBScript functions only for advanced users Not realy a con but it's only OCR software, no workflow or archiving options (does havemany export options)

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

Overallhugely reduced time in filing documents. Saved a huge amount of money by not needing a filing person.
ProsSupport 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.
ConsI 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.

“Best Advance Capturing Tool You Will Find On The Market ”

OverallAdvance Capturing
ProsGreat product with very advanced features. Awesome Pricing! Call ChronoScan or M-Files direct and get a Demo you will be happy you did.
ConsLeast 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?

“ChronoScan has been specifically configured to extract clearly defined data for tax department.”

OverallIncreased time efficiency
ProsThe 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!
ConsVisually, 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.

“Powerful tool and Top-Notch Staff to meet your business capture needs”

ProsRobust, 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.
ConsThe 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.

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

ProsI 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.
ConsFor 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.
