    You are aware that in scanning certain type of bar codes such as anything having to do with medical patients or students to file you may be violating the law.
    I somehow dont think that will be an issue in a freight forwarding environment.

    Auto store is a bit overkill, DMConnect Pro powered by Nuance will handle zonal barcode extraction to a variable for use in naming...etc but if you want to tabulate the data from several pages into an excel table or such, some scripting would be required in either case. DMConnect will accept C-Sharp scripts for Excel file handling.

    Neither Nuance nor KoFax (which acquired a lot of Nuance products acquired this software) offers DMConnect Pro. Seems to be unique to Kyocera which does not help me with Toshiba copiers.

    Ahh well you will probably have to go with scanning to a hot folder to pick-up the process into a zonal OCR program that supports however you wish to manage the extracted data.

    There really isn't much difference if you're not inputting data at or from the MFP there is no need for either Autostore or DMConnect.

    IT prohibits me from installing any 3rd party software.

    Maybe a watched folder to a Cloud solution?

    The solution has to cost less than $600.00 one time charge and must include OCR. No recurring fees.

    That Cloud idea was good, but sounds like your customer won't pay for what they want the way they want it.

    $600 won't even cover enough Professional services fees to make the deal worth it, I assume there are a bunch of boxes leveraging this deal?

    No install of 3rd party software is just another unrealistic expectation, all these types of solutions do the OCR outside the device on a PC somewhere utilizing a 3rd party OCR engine for things beyond text searchable PDF's.


    Good luck but this deal sounds better left alone.

    Walk away, Dude, walk away.

    With all those restrictions, it will never happen.

    Re: Scan BarCodes on a copier

    ... you can install apps on modern copiers. OCR hosted by a copier is fairly common now. Often you do not need a server to rip a job especially on copiers with multicore processors.

    Re: Scan BarCodes on a copier

    I did eventually find a free app from Toshiba called eBridge Plus Barcode Scan.

    Toshiba e-BRIDGE Plus for Barcode Scan - YouTube

    It requires the purchase of the OCR Enabler for approx $500.00 and works great!

    No server or Cloud connection required. The copier handles all of the processing.

    This app helped me knock out 2x Canons.

    Glad you found a workable solution.
