The backbone of all document imaging
automation systems is the requirement of having a very solid
software system and company to back it up. For several years ECS
tested various packages of software to determine which package
ECS would offer its clients. As a result of reviewing the
deficiencies of the packages tested, it was determined that there
was a real proliferation of "do-nothing" -
"half-baked" and "flawed" software on the
market. Some of the most pronounced deficiencies were:
- Difficult to use multiple
Windowing programming which stacked up Windows on top of
- Closed Architecture programming
with proprietary database structures. Minimal to almost total lack
of security provisions.
structure that is archaic & outdated based on the way
that most users use document imaging systems.
programming that rarely works out of a box due to the
complications of the intricacies of scanner and storage
The inability for
data that exists in other client computer database
applications to be linked to the document imaging
program. EC-Image has built in data import provisions that can
save thousands of man hours in the indexing function alone.
In 1993, ECS began
the development of a "better mousetrap" by
designing a document imaging software system from the
ground up to eliminate the serious flaws that was
inherent in existing software packages. After two years
of development, ECS introduced EC-Image software, which
has become the mainstay of ECS' clients in streamlining
their computer operations to handle their massive
paperwork problems. Now in our 8th year of delivering
EC-Image total turnkey document imaging systems for our
clients, we would like to introduce this remarkable
software to you via the World Wide Web. EC-Image software is
constantly revised and is now supplied as a full 32bit application with
multiple user-aid enhancements.
