Capture scanned documents, webcam images and electronic images
with one imaging SDK

The need for multi-channel capture has been growing because of a need to increase workforce efficiency and better serve customers. As a result, today, businesses need a capture solution which enables them to have a single point of access to all their vital business data. The inbound content can be from paper or electronic sources.

There are basic steps required to maximize workflow efficiency in multi-channel document capture. For paper documents, the first step would be to digitize them via scanning or webcam capture. For digital content, you need to somehow directly integrate it into business processes. However, according to recent AIIM research, “40% of those polled are dealing with multi-channel inbound content in an ad-hoc manner between paper and electronic information. And, 36% indicate they print their electronic inbound information and process it as paper.” multichannel capture

It seems many businesses don’t have a proper content capture solution in place to maximize integration of multi-channel content. In this post, we will introduce how to use Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK to help you quickly and easily implement a web-based capture solution which can:

  • Scan paper documents
  • Capture camera and webcam images
  • Load images from local disk or remote server
  • Load PDF documents

You can then save the captured images as PDF, TIFF, PNG, JEPG to local disk, web server or document repository. Or you can save the image data into base64 string or blob and integrate into your business workflow.
