Document Scanning & Capture Software Comparison for EMC ApplicationXtender

Document capture software is used to pull document images when scanned by either a multi-function peripheral (MFP, a.k.a. today's copier) or a standalone document scanner.

Capture software is now available in both software and cloud varieties, is priced pages per year or by concurrent user licensing, scans individual pages and/or batches of documents, and comes with an array of advanced capture features like auto document classification and optical character recognition (OCR).
