When evaluating applications to add document scanning capabilities to SharePoint what should IT managers consider?
Tisson Mathew: First, look for an application that has zero footprint on the SharePoint Server. Next, consider the user experience. For example, users already know Windows-based file structures and the SharePoint interface. IT departments should choose a document scanning solution that works seamlessly with existing Microsoft technologies and presents information in a format they are familiar with to ease user adoption. Also, make sure your document imaging application has out of the box capabilities to avoid customization issues. You shouldnt have to change SharePoint to accommodate capture. For example, the document imaging software should authenticate users at the MFP the same way users are authenticated at the Windows desktop.
