Scanning is the first step for paper-based correspondence. Operators sort and scan the documents as they arrive. Data received electronically at the Digital Mailroom is automatically incorporated into the process by the Arcplace communications infrastructure.
Fixed policies within the Digital Mailroom ensure that documents received are classified immediately by means of the fastest possible rate of automation. Arcplace operators classify any documents that are not processed automatically. OCR technology prepares documents (data extraction) to allow efficient processing further down the line. The Digital Mailroom then assigns documents and their extracted data to the correct recipient (an individual or a group), business process or specialist function (accounting, customer service etc.).
Digital Mailroom rounds off Arcplace's proven portfolio of scanning, document management and archiving solutions. Arcplace has always built its solutions on reputable, standard components. Ease of use combined with fast customization to meet customer requirements is what makes Arcplace solutions successful.
The Arcplace Scan Center in Glattbrugg, Switzerland processes documents of all types for companies all across Switzerland. The Scan Center is on one hand used for recurring scanning activities such as the scanning of supplier invoices, orders or the complete mail traffic. The Scan Center is also used for the digitization of larger paper archives that are then typically transferred to DMS, ECM or ERP systems.
The Arcplace Scan Center is certified to the ISO 27001 security standard and uses state of the art technology for the digitization and capture of documents of all types and sizes. A professional team consisting of project managers, engineer and scanning operators helps customers to define and implement the scanning processes that best suits the requirements.
Arcplace offers its Digital Mailroom as either in-house solution or as a service. Based on customer requirements, the individual models can be flexibly adapted: for example, mail from customers can be delivered directly to Arcplace using the operating model “Business Process Outsourcing” (BPO). The Scanning Centre sorts all correspondence as it arrives, then opens and scans letters that do not appear on the blacklist excluding them from processing. Alternatively, the Digital Mailroom is also available as in-house solution to be installed directly at the customer’s premises.
If the customer already has parts of a mailroom solution in place, Arcplace can also supply individual Digital Mailroom modules. For example, scanning or processing can be integrated into the customer’s existing environment.
This white paper from Kofax shows how a digital mailroom powered by enterprise-level capture and business process management (BPM) technology can convert incoming documents—whether originating from mail, fax, email, multi-function peripherals (MFPs), web portals, or mobile devices and tablets—into structured electronic information that feeds multiple business processes and systems across the enterprise.
