The Path To Unlocking Your Data

During this process we put your digital image files through our OCR conversion system. Operating on high powered, multi-core, computer system capable of processing several documents simultaneously, our OCR conversion systems are capable of converting around 100,000 pages per 24 hours. Operating continuously are capable of keeping pace with the output of the scanners over the course of a project.

Operating continuously are capable of keeping pace with the output of the scanners over the course of a project.

It is also possible during this process to convert some of your documents from PDF format to native formats such as Word or Excel, greatly enhancing the value of the documents and making the process of future updating and management simpler.

Additionally, using ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) technology the systems is capable of converting handwriting to full text in the cases of really old documentation needing to be scanned. Or, as often is the case, the need to capture hand written annotation made on documents in the past.

Any documents that were not native format have either been converted to native format where possible or are now high quality PDF documents with full text search capabilities.

Why OCR Conversion?

OCR acronym definition speech bubble illustrationSimply scanning paper documents does little to solve the above problems. To truly digitize there is a need to extract valuable information from the documents and files and present them in table and database format. And to do that it is necessary to have full text searchable variants of these files. Not only do these processes specialist computer systems that are costly to acquire on their own they most often require specialist knowledge to be set up that neither the Owner or the Software supplier possess. Compounding the problem and often cementing the decision not to perform this digitizing process is the belief that these systems add little value to the Company after the project is complete.

Without the expertise to implement and operate them, or the long term need to use them, coupled with the lack of appreciation for the long term consequences of this decision makes the decision not to move forward seem simple.
