I see it over and over…the Document Management industry is in denial about the capabilities of SharePoint when it comes to managing scanned images. I know, I know, it really does have some limitations out of the box: setup and config, capture, PDF ifilter, inline viewing, preview, security config and overall records management. But there is certainly a broad range of applications out there to enhance the product, and fill in the gaps. I really think the industry is shaking in its boots at the potential impact to their revenue. Take a look at the SMB Marketplace, and you see that every business with a server can install WSS, buy a front end capture application like PSI:Capture for SharePoint and a viewer like VizitSP, and poof: a DM system. And oh by the way, at a fraction of the cost of entry level systems by most vendors.
And as Microsoft continues to improve their application, and add enhancements, it will become an easy decision as business look for applications to store their paper in digital form.
