Document Imaging at NDSU


NDSU has chosen ImageNow, by Perceptive Software, as its document imaging software solution. This software is comprised of three parts: software installed on the server, software installed on the user's computer, and capture software installed on computers connected to scanners.

  1. Server Software

    • enterprise software was installed onto an NDSU host server at the time of the initial implementation
    • purchased Client and Capture licenses are installed onto the host server and are activated for use

  2. Client Software

    • any computer used to access ImageNow must have the ImageNow Client software application installed
    • the number of users logged in to ImageNow at one time is limited to the number of client licenses stored on the host server

  3. Capture Software

    • a "CaptureNow" license is required for each computer that is connected to a scanner
    • Kofax VRS (Virtual Re-Scan), or other comparable image processing software is recommended for each scanning computer


Many participating offices at NDSU are using the Fujitsu fi-4340C scanner. However, this scanner model has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. The NDSU Bookstore can order many different brands and models of scanners. Scanners are recommended to have an automatic document feeder, a high resolution (300+ dpi), and the ability to do two-sided ("duplex") scans. The Fujitsu brand was selected because the purchase price includes scan-enhancement software which is recommended for each scanning computer. This software can be purchased separately if another brand of scanner is preferred. Two Fujitsu models that are currently recommended are: the Fujitsu fi-7260 (has document feeder plus flatbed) and the Fujitsu fi-7160 (document feeder only, no flatbed). Selection of which model is best suited for your office will depend on your office's scanning needs and available work space.
