Something really interesting that happened at my office..

We scan in a lot of documents. Now, the machines *are* able to encode OCR into the pdf document created. This makes indexing the documents relatively easy.

BUT - Guess what! They don't want to use the scanner's OCR tech! Because they say it slows down scanning! And- well for five pages who cares. But for 200 page documents???

They have a point.

So I have my thing run at night.. collect info etc.
That's why I needed muscle.
