Structured filing and indexing of documents with Filing Assist

Combined with superior Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX devices, Filing Assist accelerates a business’ digital transition. It saves time, reduces keying errors and brings consistency to your filing so you can find what you need, when and wherever you need it - at home, work or on the go.

Filing Assist – automated batch scanning

The automated batch scanning of Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX devices, in combination with uniFLOW Online, utilize a pre-configured scan workflow which is ideal for scanning batches of repetitive documents including invoices, delivery notes, picking lists and orders.

Boost efficiency with pre-configured workflows
After identifying and selecting the required scan workflow at the device, batches of documents can be scanned straight away.

Once uploaded, document types are automatically recognized based on document structure and fixed text positions. File names and metadata are pre-populated. Back at the desk, users validate the pre-populated data in the uniFLOW Online Scan Center. The user can screen all scanned documents to check that the pre-populated file name and metadata are correct. If there are errors, the preview can be opened to edit the OCR result or select a different OCR block. Once done, documents are submitted to their final destination by hitting the Send button.

Optionally, the validation in the Scan Center can be skipped for e.g. non-error-prone documents. In this case, no additional manual check takes place in the uniFLOW Online Scan Center. The scanned files are immediately transferred to the desired destination. OCR checks are then performed in the scan destination or neglected due to the simplicity of documents.


Automation with Filing Assist
Intelligent forms recognition ensures documents are recognized and pre-populated with the correct file name and metadata. The automatic data population makes time-consuming and error-prone manual filing and indexing obsolete. Thanks to pre-populated file names and metadata, searching for and retrieving documents is fast and straightforward.
