Today's businesses face a relentless torrent of both paper and electronic files. Most companies want to simplify how they acquire, manage, and distribute these documents, but solutions can be elusive. How can incoming hard-copy pages be easily converted to electronic data? How can you manage digital archives without disrupting existing workflows? Is there an easy way to provide secure access and distribution?
Canon imageWARE document management solutions help you streamline complex paper processes and create one-touch workflows. With a single button, your employees can now securely convert hard-copy pages into electronic documents and data, store them in an archive, and distribute them automatically to multiple users.
Desktop’s Binder Editor gives users the ability to combine documents from multiple sources (MS Office, PDF, images, etc.) through either their Desktop library or printing directly into the Binder Editor. Once documents have been added to the Binder Editor pages can be rearranged, finishing settings can be added and previewed on screen before printing.
After combining documents with Desktop’s Binder Editor, users can then rearrange page content and change text through the Object Layout Editor without leaving imageRUNNER ADVANCE Desktop or launching any additional software. Either Detail Mode to change the text or Block Mode to rearrange entire sections of a document and consolidate information from multiple documents can be used to make on the fly changes to any document.
Need to convert printed materials such as reports, presentations, or invoices into popular digital formats on your PC? Canon imageWARE document management solutions can help.

Through advanced automated scanning, you can capture specific document numbers, company names, sender names, and more, then let the system classify, distribute, and archive them automatically.
Archiving high volumes of paper documents into shareable electronic documents is made easier with imageWARE Scan Manager DS.

Document Binder, a feature of iR ADVANCE Desktop, gives users the ability to combine documents from multiple file formats, preview and set the print settings, and make edits with the Object Layout Editor. With imageRUNNER ADVANCE Desktop, end users have the tools necessary to better manage documents and interact with imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems.
imageRUNNER ADVANCE Desktop now comes with Quick Printing Tool. The Quick
Printing Tool sits on the user's PC desktop and displays an icon which, when
moused over, converts to a "quick menu." It offers four shortcuts to frequently
used functions: "Print," "Fax," "Convert to PDF," and "Print Preview," which
accesses the Office Make-Ready/Binder area. User's can drag-and-drop documents
on one of these buttons to get instant access to that function.

Medical offices handle a huge amount of paper - files, prescriptions, patient records, and more. In the past, many organizations maintained paper document archives. Today they can replace inefficient, manual document handling and routing processes with a more streamlined, electronic workflow. Medical staff can scan documents at an imageRUNNER device, then send orders and other data to a central database. Users can track delivery status at their desktops, print notifications, and send status reports. The end result? Improved document processes and enhanced communications efficiency, all while reducing costs and supporting HIPAA requirements.
Small and medium-sized businesses of all kinds require central repositories for pres- entations, proposals, marketing plans, and other documents. With Canon document management solutions, you can easily create a server-based archive of both electronic and scanned hard-copy documents.
Even today, most small and medium-sized warehouses rely on paper-based invoices and work orders -often with costly and unreliable data entry workflows. Now you can quickly convert those hard copies into electronic data at a fraction of the cost of similar solutions. Route the data automatically either to a database or to multiple users via email or fax.
Most financial companies have great need for data entry and storage. In fact, some can generate up to 10,000 pieces of paper every month! An intelligent indexing sol- ution can drastically cut these costs and deliver customer information faster. Together with Canon's DR-Series or third-party scanners, imageWARE Scan Manager DS and Document Server provide a centralized document capturing system. With it, you can automatically scan and process business documents for future search and ret- rieval. Reduce manual labor by processing documents through bar code and form recognition, then export digitized documents seamlessly to imageWARE Document Server for storage and retrieval.
Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office had been utilizing Canofile, an electronic filing system introduced by Canon, for its scanning operations for several years. Canofile had fit Vanderburgh’s initial business requirements, which helped them achieve workflow efficiency and their subsequent expansion of Canofile as their imaging and electronic document repository system. With the discontinuation of Canofile, Vanderburgh was faced with a difficult business decision – how and what to replace Canofile with. The case study delves into Vanderburgh’s engagement with Canon Professional Services to review their options and how they decided to move forward with imageWARE as their imaging and electronic document repository system.
A global manufacturing company faced several challenges managing their document workflows. A significant complication was the utilization of three separate document management systems at their North American headquarters. The use of disparate systems to manage document workflows resulted in a chaotic, haphazard practice to convert documents into electronic records. In addition, they were managing more work with fewer resources for their day to day operations.
imageWARE has provided new insight into simplifying their document workflows. The use of imageWARE is proving to ease their document conversion by centralizing their scanning operations and relieving manual intervention by staff. This is helping imageWARE become the preferred document management solution from both an IT and staff perspective. The success of imageWARE may eventually displace the other systems in use and help them meet their goal of having one document management solution for their entire organization.
A Property Management Company had grown through a series of successful acquisitions, but it faced challenges integrating the new businesses into one combined entity. In particular, its rental agreement and invoice operations had become increasingly inefficient with multiple manual and paper-intensive processes. imageWARE document management solutions transformed these manual processes into an automated electronic document workflow.
A Casino and Gaming Company was using rented warehouses to store large amounts of hard-copy documentation for audit and compliance purposes. Canon imageWARE document management solutions transformed this cumbersome and expensive work-flow into an efficient document storage and retrieval system.
Central Bucks School District faced a daunting challenge in managing over 1,000 applicant resumes across the school district. With over 40 people involved and spread out among more than 20 different buildings, the hiring process was bottle- necked with manual systems including interoffice mail and in-person deliveries.
An imageWARE® document management solution enabled the district to capture, organize, and manage hiring-related documents, expediting the search for qualified school personnel. Now all professional and support staff resumes are scanned at the administrative office and placed on the network, making them immediately available to all hiring personnel. The solution also provides a completely searchable database of resumes. To find qualified candidates, employees simply enter criteria, and all applicable resumes appear on screen. They can even take advantage of an annot- ation tool to attach notes to each resume, allowing all involved hiring parties to communicate efficiently.
"We have created a seamless resume management system with imageWARE," says the district's Pam Spangler. "We can share resumes and files across 20 different locations. We have reduced a process that normally took days to minutes."
The Suffolk County Sheriff's Department was spending too much time keeping track of the inmates' records with a manual filing system. Information was not available when needed, and valuable office space was taken over by cabinets.
An imageWARE® document management solution allows the department to scan in the inmate files and convert large amounts of personal information including incarcer- ation history, medical records, and mug shots to electronic records. Former filing cabinet space has now been freed up to become offices, and a clerical position was eliminated, saving the county money. With imageWARE's sophisticated search and archival technology, Jane Does can now be searched and positively identified in minutes.
"The implementation of imageWARE has significantly streamlined our records mana- gement and workflow operations," says Lynn Clark of the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department. "We have dramatically improved inmate records management, while at the same time cutting the time associated with input, retrieval, and processing of these records from days to seconds."
A prominent defense contractor needed to implement a paper-to-data workflow that involved scanning large numbers of hard-copy forms, automatically recognizing doc- ument types, extracting indexing information, and routing them appropriately. The Canon document management solution began with imageRUNNER and DR Scanners which provide a central location for employees to input documents. They batch scan forms with imageWARE Scan Manager which recognizes their types, extracts key information, and automatically routes them to the appropriate destin- ations. Employees can then manage and access the entire electronic archive using imageWARE Document Manager. As a result, a cumbersome data entry process has become streamlined, automated, and error free.
