Capture. This single word has gained much notoriety in recent years. The reason: the importance of capture to business processes. In particular, the notion of capturing - scanning - paper based information as early in a process as possible for a couple of reasons. The first reason is to eliminate the chance of the paper being lost, damaged, or misplaced. Second, and perhaps the more significant, the sooner this information enters the process, the sooner action can be taken on it. This leads us to distributed capture, the premise being to capture this information at the point of first touch in a process and bring it into the process digitally.
