System Requirements

Desktop Version

I. Operating system requirements

Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008 and above

II. Database

  • Microsoft SQL Server – 2008 and above;
  • Microsoft SQL Server Express 2008 and above (free);
  • SQL Management Studio - for better control over database administration;

Tip

When the server connects to the DB with Windows Authentication the SQL Server login for that Windows account must have dbcreate and alter table permissions.

III. Web Version Requirements

  • Windows 10 or Windows Server 2012 and above;
  • .Net Framework 4.5.2;
  • IIS 8 and above;
  • ASP.NET 4.6 and above;
  • Required Windows Roles and Features can be seen here;

IV. Production System

Server

  • CPU: Intel i7 3rd generation and above (for a team of 100 users. The software will take advantage of its multithreaded abilities)

Much lower requirements for small teams.

  • RAM: 6GB (1 GB for the application server, at a load of 10,000 pages/day + 3GB for SQL Server + 2GB for Windows)
  • Hard drive space: for image storage average size is 1MB per page, 1TB per 1 million pages

Tip

The application server has an image storage cleaning mechanism that can automatically erase images for processed batches.

OCR client

  • CPU: Intel i7 3rd generation and above. The software will take advantage of its multithreaded abilities to process many pages at one time;
  • RAM: 4GB (256 MB per logical core used);
  • Hard drive space: 350 MB for the installation;

Classificatin client

  • CPU: Intel i7 3rd generation and above. The software will take advantage of its multithreaded abilities to process many pages at one time;
  • RAM: 6GB (500 MB per logical core used during classification);
  • Hard drive space: 1GB for the installation;

Data Capture client

  • CPU: Intel i7 3rd generation and above. The software will take advantage of its multithreaded abilities to process many pages at one time;
  • RAM: 4GB (350 MB per logical core used);
  • Hard drive space: 350 MB for the installation;

App Server + OCR client + Data Capture + Export client (combined on a single computer)

  • CPU: Intel i7 3rd generation and above - at least 4 physical cores;
  • RAM: 6GB (if the SQL server is locally installed then recommended amount of RAM is 8GB);
  • Hard drive space: for image storage: 1TB per 1 million pages;

Verify client – average office machine.

  • RAM: 4 GB (depending on the size of the batches);
  • Hard drive space: 500 MB for the installation;

Automated Input Service - configuration below is for monitoring 3 watched folders at a time.

  • CPU: Intel i7 - at least 2 physical cores;
  • RAM: 4GB;
  • Hard drive space: 500 MB for the installation;

Image processing Client - optional, can be used to speed up batch creation (mandatory for Web version).

  • CPU: Intel i7 3rd generation and above. The software will take advantage of its multithreaded abilities to process many pages at one time;
  • RAM: 4GB (350 MB per logical core used);
  • Hard drive space: 350 MB for the installation;

Input client – average office machine

  • RAM: 4 GB (depending on the size of the batches);
  • Hard drive space: 500 MB for the installation;

Sample Production Systems - verify clients are on separate computers

1,000,000 pages/y

  • 1 Server;
  • 4-6 OCR Clients, 4-6 Data Capture clients, 2-4 Export clients: intel i7 above 3rd generation, 8 logical cores;
  • 10-15 Verify clients for the operators

500,000 pages/y

  • 2-4 OCR Clients, 2-4 Data Capture clients, 2 Export clients: intel i7 above 3rd generation, 8 logical cores;
  • 5-7 Verify clients for the operators;

V. Demo / Evaluation System - single computer

Small batches of documents: 10-15 pages per batch.

  • Operational speed:
  • OCR + Data Capture: ~10-25 sec/page

1 machine: Server, SQL Server, OCR client, Data Capture client, Export client, Input client, Verify client.

  • CPU: Intel i5
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Hard drive: 2.5GB for the software;
