Papermerge DMS

I have nothing against paper. Paper is a brilliant invention of humanity. But in the 21st century I find it more appropriate for paper-based documents to be digitized (scanned). Once scanned, appropriate software can be used to find any document in a fraction of a second, just by typing a few keywords.

Papermerge is a document management system designed to work with scanned documents. As well as OCR with full text search, it provides the look and feel of major modern file browsers, with tags and hierarchical structure for files and folders, so that you can organize your documents in a similar way to Dropbox (via web) or Google Drive (but with tags and other cool features).

What It Does

  • It OCRs your documents

  • Provides you nice user interface to easly browse your documents

  • Augments your documents with metadata

  • Helps you instantly find your documents:

  • Helps you fix scanned documents issues

What It Doesn’t Do

  • It does not take control of your documents. Documents are stored on filesystem in a simple and intuitive manner so that you can take snapshot of your data at any time.
  • It does not stay in your way when you make decisions about your data.
