The Federal Service of State Registration is part of the Russian Government which deals with the cadastre (boundaries) and cartography (mapping) and have branches in all big cities and district centers. They are also responsible for realty and acre transactions.
This tender was part of a federal program designed to upgrade the state registration system and create a unified state digital database of realty and acre. All records were previously held mostly in paper archived in regional departments and therefore, needed to be converted to digital documents.
After considering competitive products from Fujitsu, Canon and HP, they decided on the DocuMate 752. This decision was based on many factors including: competitive technical capability, best price, Xerox support and also the fact it included Kofax VRS Professional which enabled them to turn poor quality original documents into high quality digital copies.
The DM 752 has now been deployed across Russia and they have purchased 250 units in total. They are very pleased with the solution as it has helped improve their document quality and scan results are standardized between all of the offices. They have been impressed with the service offered to them, in particular the speed in which we were able to deliver such a large volume of scanners in such a short timeframe.
