Image Clerk is the PC based image processing component of IMS/21.

It provides the following functions

Smart Panels - (Making “Point and Shoot“ obsolete)

IMS/21’s ”Smart Panel“ definition allows users to implement the systems quickly, without programming, and link vital documents to any AS/400 application.


IMS/21 users can overlay graphical annotations to image which include highlights, redactions, freehand graphics and text. ( These annotations do not alter the original document, which is permanently stored on optical disk.)

In addition, AS/400 spool files are frequently printed on pre-printed forms such as invoices, checks, and statements. IMS/21 can store a copy of this pre-printed form as a single graphic image and then display it as an overlay with the spool file information. The result is an image that looks like the finished product.

Notes Function-

When viewing a document user can generate notes from any PC or dumb terminal— to be stored in the IMS/21 database as text data, allowing all users to view them.

Multiple Image Display-

For multi-page documents, IMS/21 lets you page backwards and forwards with a simple click of the mouse. Users can also Display multiple documents at one time on their PC for comparison purposes.

Batch Scanning/Indexing-

IMS/21 allows you to scan and index large batches of documents quickly and efficiently using the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) on the scanner. A number if indexing options are available, including Auto Indexing, which uses a barcode to identify the indexing key, or OCR engine to translate portions if an image into data to be used to identify the indexing key.

Fax Links-

IMS/21’s Fax Link Facility lets you access and display incoming faxes that originate from a variety of PC— or AS/400 attached fax systems. These documents can then be easily shared between branch offices or departments without the need for multiple reprints or postage.
