We propose an approach towards an integrated document processing and management system that has the intention to capture essentially freely structured documents, like those typically used in the office domain. The document analysis system ANASTASIL is capable to reveal the structure as well as the contents of complex paper documents. Moreover, it facilitates the handling of the containing information. Analyzed documents are stored in the management system KRISYS that is connected to several different subsequent services. The described system can be considered as an ideal extension of the human clerk, making his tasks in information processing easier. The symbolic representation of the analysis results allow an easy transformation in a given international standard, e.g., ODA/ODIF or SGML, and to interchange it via global network.
