  2. 2. 2 Oct 2010 InstantFiler is an enterprise solution for filing paper documents automatically, the system suites any type of organization, centralized or distributed. The system's concept is to file any paper document by doing one simple function. InstantFiler's efficient filing process eliminates unnecessary paper handling and saves the customer significantly. InstantFiler is built around a centralized server and SDR units (Smart Dial-up Routers) that are hooked on the fax machines from whom the documents are sent for filing.

  4. 4. 4 Any fax machine in the organization that is used for filing documents has a small SDR unit connected to its fax line. The SDR is responsible for transferring the fax call to the InstantFiler server, the SDR is triggered by dialing an asterisk (*) before the number. The operator dials a number which is actually a certain index number for the filing process, for example, an I.D. number, Insurance policy number, Bank account number, etc, and than sends the fax. The fax arrives on one of the InstantFiler Server lines; the document and the index number are accepted by the system and scanned by an OCR (Optical Character Recognition). The documents than are being filed by the system according to the index number. It is optional to return to the sender of the document a confirmation fax or E-mail. How Does it Work Oct 2010
  5. 5. 5 The SDR connects between the fax machine and the telephone line. When the user dials the filing code (asterisk *), the SDR is triggered and routes the call to the InstantFiler system. The SDR connection Oct 2010

  7. 7. 7 InstantFiler deploys several OCR engines to support a variety of languages and to provide a high accuracy. The OCR module improves the fax image by increasing its resolution, flips pages that were sent upside down, fixes de-skewed document, to enable high performance - lowering the number of errors.

  8. 8. 8 The automatic filing system enables filing documents based on indexes and different parameters. For example, in a Bank, when the operator keys "asterisk 1" the system knows that the numbers keyed after is the persons ID number, and when he keys " asterisk 2" the system knows that the document is a loan request. The system generates two files, the original picture, and a metadata file that the OCR generated. This allows searching for information by using keywords, the same way as searching other Metadata documents (i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, Etc.). The systems data base is SQL based.
