Archiving efficiently

Get the most out of RetSoft Archive by minding the following aspects.

Configuration

Business Business+ Expert Pro

Make sure you have an up to date hardware configuration. 
Note: A fast scanner only works fast on a fast system.

Business

Business Pro

When scanning more than 25 documents each day on average, we advise a scanner that has an ADF (Automatic Document Feeder). 
All documents can be scanned in just a single batch. After the session has complete, you can place the scanned documents into appropriate folders. 

RetSoft Archive 'Pro' or 'Business' supports archives up to 200.000 documents. Also, the archive should not exceed the size of 3GB. 
If you have reached one of these limits, or searches tend to get slow, you can either split the archive into two or more archives, or upgrade.

If you want to modify the archive with more than one workstation simultaniously, you can upgrade to RetSoft Archive 'Expert' or 'Business+'. 
This version allows you to set restrictions to the archive, add documents and make modifications from multiple workstations and store up to milions of documents.

System requirements client: 1800 MHz processor, 256 MB RAM, USB 2.0/SCSI TWAIN compatible scanner (a selection can be found at our website).
Configuration server: The system requirements of the server depend mostly on system requirements of the database system (MS SQL Server / MySQL) combined with the size of the archive and search indices. 
We usually advice a scalable server system which is easy to upgrade over time, while the archive grows.

Scanners

RetSoft Archive can directly operate scanners that come with a TWAIN-driver. 
Other types of scanners, such as network scanners and copiers, are also supported as long as that can store documents as PDF or TIFF files onto an inbox.
