need to find a document management program

P: n/a
My customer wants to scan their documents and organize them electronically
and he has asked me to find him a viable solution. These are the criteria.

- It must integrate with an existing MS SQL database and the .NET interface
- Scanned images should be easily catalogued. I see the process as follows
* a document comes in
* key in appropriate information about the document by creating a record
in the database
* document scanned
* the image gets pushed out to a repository
* the path to the image's place in the repository gets recorded in the
record in the database.

Pretty typical, I would say. Again, the customer already has a database and
a .NET interface for his business activities. The document management
system should be easily integrated into the existing system, which means
easy to use API's.

I am aware of a few vendors out there such as FileNET, Kofax, Documentum. I
need objective product reviews, which their web sites definitely do not
provide.

I would look into MS Sharepoint as they give you the document store (on an
MS SQL Server) and a well documented interface you can use from .NET.
