ABBYY FlexiCapture - Scanning Station

See how the ABBYY Scanning Station provides an efficient and flexible way to send documents to ABBYY FlexiCapture.

Hello. Today I'm going to give you a quick tour of the ABBYY FlexiCapture Scanning Station. This is a pretty neat station that gives us the ability to scan documents into the software, but in the meantime, before they get processed, we have the ability to modify those documents. We can rotate them. We can shift multiple pages into what we consider a document. We can delete unnecessary pages and those kind of things, therefore, giving us the best processing power downstream.

What I'm going to show you today is the scanning station. We have a couple options at the top that are very, very simple. We can scan the pages. Once they're scanned, we will send them to ABBYY FlexiCapture. Then there's a process called re scanning that we're not going to highlight in this video, but if we were to re scan, that would be the option that we use. What we're going to do first is scan some pages. Now we can just click the button, but before I do that, you can see here we have some options to select a scanner that is attached to our computer or we can import from a directory. That's what this demo is doing. We simply hit the scan button and you can see it's processing documents here as we speak.

What you see here in front of you is nine pages of documents that we have and you can just highlight them. We can also zoom in as much as we need to or zoom out on the thumbnails. We have very nice thumbnails here to show us what documents we scanned in. At any point in this process, we can do what we want to with the images. You see we have some quick shortcut buttons, but we can also right click here and rotate if necessary. We can delete pages if we don't want them. We can do all kinds of neat little things here. We can flip them, crop them, make them black and white, those kinds of things just based on whatever our business requirements are.

What we can do here is, once we're done and once we're happy, you can see we have a batch of documents and we can simple send those to ABBYY FlexiCapture. Now that's the default option when I click this button, but I'm just going to highlight here. You can see we have all kinds of different options we can do just based on whatever our business process is. We can send them directly to the ABBYY FlexiCapture software and when we do that, it will assume that we've already selected the options that we have. Typically, that would be which project we're working within ABBYY. If we're using batch types as an organization, what batch type I'm processing. The same with registration parameters if we're using that as well. All I need to do is send that to ABBYY FlexiCapture and they will be processed.

Once they're processed here, you can see they turn gray and we are no long needing to do anything with that batch. What I'm going to do again is we're going to scan a whole nother batch. I just want you to see some of the options here. If for some reason our business process demands that we separate pages into separate documents, we have the ability to do that. You can see here a batch can have multiple documents and documents can have multiple pages. We have the ability to control. We can, of course, drag and drop things as needed where needed.

This is a very neat little station. We have a lot of functionality to allow our users to control what they need to when it comes to processing scanned images. This is the ABBYY FlexiCapture Scanning Station. It is as simple as what you just saw. We scan, we send to the software, and then as a scanning user, we are completed, and the document will then go through the processing stages and we'll eventually hit a verify user if necessary.

This is the scanning station. I hope you enjoyed the video. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you.
