I'm looking into introducing a fast scanner with a considerable volume paper feed to an already existing Rapid Data Entry (RDE) application.
Essentially, I want to introduce a new feature into the current process, so that the operation works like the following cross functional flowchart (double connector represents parallel process, connector with large triangle means "pass control to"):
- As denoted, at the end of the process, the application automatically instructs the scanner to feed a new form.
- The whole process above is expected to have a minimum time of 5 seconds (and a maximum of 3 minutes).
So, I need a scanner that can at least scan a form (size A4) in B&W in under 5 seconds, that can hold a considerable number of forms in its feeder and that has a programmable API I can use to instruct it from my RDE application.
Any one of you have any recommendation?
