Document imaging is the process by which an organization or individual converts paper document to images. Imaging can be accomplished through the use of a desktop scanner, network scanner, mobile device, scanning copier or an image printer utility. Document imaging software is also referred to as scanning software or document capture software. The end goal of document imaging is usually to archive or store images of documents for later reference, or to use them in a real-time workflow, or document routing scenario. Imaging can also provide a means to backup file cabinets, and is a core component of the paperless office. A key part of document imaging is the use of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to make the images searchable through the use of text conversion. Image format outputs for imaging include: JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF and PDF. TIFF and PDF are industry standard outputs.
