Our Scope : Full Project will be done by us

    Scan the documents with Ascent Capture – 8 (2 scanning station
    Keep it locally on the Ascent capture for the later on migration to the EDMS.
    Send it online to the EDMS (MOSS– 2007)
Our Requirements
    Ascent Capture – 8 Volume License for 600K
    Concurrent Station – 2nos – (Please let me know your comments on this)
    VRS license for tow scanning station – Is it required for Ascent Capture - 8

I would appreciate if anyone can explain to me on the follwoing points;
concurrent station
Is donge a part of Ascent capture Volume Licence and Concurrent station?

you need your volume license plus 2 full station licenses.

How about release? Will one of your two stations do the release or will it be a server? If a server, you'll need 3 full station licenses. If you're releasing in the evening, you can go cheap by stopping the release during the day and run release in the evening then stop it during the day. I wouldn't go that route though, since there will be a lot of work stopping and starting the service.

VRS is not required, but I would recommend it. What scanner are you using? Maybe it comes with VRS Basic or even Pro?

You can buy VRS separately and have it licensed on the station itself. That way it's not on the dongle and I think it's cheaper in the long run.

All other licenses are on a single dongle placed on the server.

For VRS I suggest looking for scanners, that have VRS bundled. This is true if You do not have scanners yet. Having the VRS on the AC license is good, if You have more scanners that need VRS and they are not in use at the same time. So You will have VRS licenses, that can move from one station to another. But You have to check what VRS licenses You need - it depends on the scanner model. But in general You have only two options - Workgroup or Production... Most scanners fit under Workgroup license and many scanners that need Production license have already VRS bundled....

And talking about MOSS release - there are some issues with it. If you are using only ASCII character set or localized AC, then You will not notice them.

That's true for VRS Professional. But there is only one Basic.
