DocuNECT Capture systems can be process intensive depending on the operations they are performing. In order to architect the right capture solution, consider the following points:

1) Average number of documents being captured.
2) The frequency of the capture processes (are they running every minute or every day).
3) The type of operations being performed on the documents, i.e. copying between disk locations, OCR'ring the document content.
4) The number of users (if any) capturing documents from the desktop
