New way to DIP into information
Document image processing (DIP) can provide its supposed benefits only when a careful consideration and preparation are carried out before purchasing. First, the applicability of DIP to business processes should be studied. An application is appropriate when large numbers of documents significant to the business operations are being handled, when the need to retrieve such documents is great, when documents are processed in many stages and when compilation of documents from varying sources is necessary. Then, it is necessary to determine if the application has the right features to be an effective DIP system, how the system will suit the company's information systems planning and if resources exist for the DIP implementation. Only when these conditions are met can a company reap the rewards from a DIP system. These benefits include enhanced productivity, reduced labor and operating costs, improved customer service and many others.

Information: the strategic essential
Fast, focused and pertinent information is the main ingredient that a senior executive body needs to achieve an effective strategic planning and performance evaluation. However, surveys show that the information needs of senior executives are not being met. Data being gathered are limited to financial matters and are usually internally generated. The lack of non-financial and external information contribute to the restricted view of executives regarding their businesses. To determine what type of information an executive board needs, it is necessary to study its role and types of decisions it makes. Each decision falls into three categories, namely, strategic direction, managing change and operational management, and requires different information. To make sure that an information is relevant, it must be suited to the business goals and critical success factors.
