[Case Study] PICS’ DocLib Document Management Application Leverages Dynamsoft SDK to Enable Simple Scanning for Enhanced Document Capture, Storage, Retrieval and Business Process Management

Last Updated on 2021-04-12

PICS™, based in New Jersey, provides a comprehensive document management application for customers. The DocLib™ browser-based application is used by customers to replace inefficient and costly paper-based processes. There’s good reason for organizations to move away from paper-based processes. An estimated 18 minutes is the average search time for a paper document. Also, each misfiled document costs organizations an average of $125 and, it’s $350 to $700 for lost documents. U.S managers spend an average of four weeks yearly searching for or waiting on misfiled, mislabeled, untracked or “lost” papers.

PICS recently updated DocLib with a “Simple Scan’ feature. To enable this feature, the company turned to Dynamsoft for an image capture SDK. The use of Dynamsoft’s Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK helped PICS more rapidly develop the “Simple Scan” feature. This also kept development costs lower. Now, the DocLib “Simple Scan” feature is used by dozens of customers to quickly scan and capture documents for storage, retrieval or routing for workflow processes. Documents scanned include accounts payable vouchers, sales orders, inventory transactions and more. The feature helps DocLib users more quickly manage and process document management workflows.

Dynamsoft’s Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK
The SDK provides a TWAIN interface that allows developers to write just a couple of lines of code in JavaScript. This is instead of taking months to learn the TWAIN standard and then develop an application with hundreds to thousands of lines of code. So, PICS was able to significantly reduce development costs and time for DocLib. In turn, this keeps the cost of DocLib lower for customers. Also, the Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK is optimized for web applications. Since the DocLib application is used in a browser, the SDK made things even easier. The SDK comes with built-in key features for scanning, uploading, editing, and document management within web browsers. Dynamic Web TWAIN has built-in support for local image editing and saving options to a variety of formats. Documents can be saved to local or remote databases or other repositories. The SDK supports 32-bit / 64-bit Internet Explorer® (IE), Firefox®, Chrome™, Safari and Opera™ browsers on Windows and Mac OS X®. The latest version of the SDK provides native scanning support in Mac OS X, removing the need to install a driver for use.

Dynamic Web TWAIN also features Sandbox security. This ensures browser-based image scanning applications are securely separated from imaging devices. It also ensures hassle-free communication with TWAIN-compliant devices. Supported devices include TWAIN-compatible scanners, digital cameras or capture cards.
