[Case Study] How to Build a Web-based Document Scanning Solution in Just One Month

Last Updated on 2018-10-17


On a daily basis, the Compassionate Health Options staff collaborates to provide patient care and process necessary paperwork. This is across many locations. City locations in Northern California include: San Rafael, San Francisco, Colfax, Pleasant Hill, Marysville, Monterey, Mt. Shasta, Oakland, Redding, San Jose, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, South Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Vallejo, and more.

The team needed a new web-based document management solution. To accomplish this, a team of 3-5 staff members found an outside web application development team – WholeLife Software. Afterward, the two collaborated to come up with a solution. The document management application would need to be simple to use, fast to implement and powerful enough for many to use. On a daily basis, some 35-60 people would be using the application. Another main point of the solution would be to allow the scanning of records and ID cards into a web application, to avoid desktop file uploads.


Once a course of action was defined and the work started, development time was approximately one month. The use of JavaScript into the web app was an important time-saver. Also, the web team instinctively knew it wanted to use a software development kit (SDK) for the TWAIN interface. With the right vendor, this would save the most amount of time. So, a quick search found Dynamsoft and their Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK.

Dynamsoft’s Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK provide developers a simple way to deliver a TWAIN scanning module in a web application so they need write just a couple of lines of code in JavaScript. This is instead of taking months to learn the TWAIN standard. Then many more months would be required to develop an application with hundreds to thousands of lines of code. A finished application gives users key features for document scanning, uploading, editing, and document management within web browsers. The SDK 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. It supports 32-bit / 64-bit Internet Explorer® (IE), Firefox®, Chrome®, Safari® and Opera™ browsers on Windows® and Mac® OS X.
