Abstract : The use of optical technology has been assessed as the next step in the storage of information. Optical imaging systems for paper management have the potential benefits of improving productivity and permitting access to information on paper quickly. Although optical media is a relatively new technology there are many articles addressing the uses for optical media. With the exception of compact disks, optical disks have not gained rapid acceptance even though the market potential due to the storage capabilities of optical disks is much greater than standard magnetic media. One aspect about optical systems that does not receive much attention is how organizations should introduce optical media filing systems in their organizations. Speed, compatibility with current systems, paper administration, legal issues and strategic planning are just a few of the issues that have to be addressed. This thesis investigated management concerns which must be addressed when considering document imaging systems. Keywords: Image scanners, Optical scanners, Optical disk, Document imaging system, Management concerns.
