OPEX and Storetec point the way ahead

Once upon a time Neil Robson was involved with photocopier sales and it occured to him that the scanner function was often overlooked but had considerable scope. He happened to have a conversation with a software contact and the notable result is Storetec – a true pioneer and leading light in the world of Business Process Outsourcing and whose development has been further accelerated by the acquisition of an OPEX Falcon scanning system.

This installation underwrites the ethos of award-winning Storetec as a caring, thinking company which simply does the best for clients by being ahead of the game and always linking them to best practice and the way forward. The key services of Document Scanning, Document Storage and Records Management ensure total security and 24/7 access for the complete archive no matter how big or small supported by Storetec’s unique Freedoc’s back-up technology and a combination of expereience, trust,and knowledge.

Technically talking, the unrivalled all-new Falcon™ combines OPEX’s innovative one-step drop feed scanning with the performance of a high-capacity production scanner, providing the only universal document scanning workstation on the market. Regardless of scanning needs, Falcon is designed to attack the most difficult and daunting workflow challenges. Enhanced functionality and unmatched flexibility are the name of the game. Falcon allows operators to prep and scan documents at a faster rate than most current prep only processes. This significantly reduces costs associated with preparing documents for scanning. In addition, Falcon offers four versatile feeder options: drop-feeder, packet feeder, high-capacity feeder, and a unique Rescan Feeder. It is possible to scan everything from single sheets to multiple large stacks of paper intermixed. The Falcon conveyor can hold more than 700 pages at any given time, allowing maximum throughput and uninterrupted processing. From thick paper to thin paper and fragile or damaged pieces, from envelopes and file folders to receipts, to small forms and business cards – nearly any style or type of document can be scanned! Minimizing prep, paper handling, and other manual tasks not only improves efficiency, but also results in superior document integrity. Documents are handled once and converted to image. As documents are scanned, operators can view images in real-time to ensure proper capture and identification. This reduces time-consuming and costly rescans later in the process. And blank page deletion (VRS) is a major asset. Truly operator friendly, the motorised table provides adjustable height settings for maximum operator comfort – and the Falcon comes equipped with a 22-inch touch-screen monitor for enhanced viewing of scanned images and easy one-touch page-type classification. In software terms, OPEX’s feature-rich CertainScan software is the perfect complement to Falcon providing auto-classification and the most intuitive way to visually classify documents as they are scanned. The versatility of this platform allows users to maximize the many features of their OPEX scanner and minimize the preparation of documents prior to scanning. Completing the core benefits to Storetec the versatile feeder capabilities a dynamic process that is proven to reduce prep and increase scanning accuracy. Patented drop-feed technology allows for efficient scanning directly from file folders, while intelligent packet sensing capabilities adjust track speed for optimal scanning throughput. The high-capacity feeder handles large stacks of mixed document types making the need for additional high-volume production scanners unnecessary.

Looking ahead, Neil Robson observes “It’s the next step that always counts and we are always tuned to the best methods. No company should stay still. We have to be agile and always get the product right. Traditional desk top scanning with boxes and boxes sheets waiting for scanning is all wrong. We can digitise, catalogue and index any document from anywhere in the world. Amazingly the new Falcon was exactly what I had in mind as if I had designed it to take us forward. It is a proven process, easy to get used to and in a different class and gives us unrivalled range and a quality step up with excellent technical support. We pride ourselves on the highly organised corporate and holistic nature style of our operation here. So much so that when clients visit they feel very comfortable and you could say it is not so much a case of outsourcing but rather insourcing.
