Let me take you on a time travel to show you the importance of optical character recognition (OCR) in a modern world filled with clouds.
There once was a time, when, before a job interview you had to sit down, read a clipboard and fill in your credentials. This could have been your address and for example the last position you worked in. You either got the job or.. well, you didn’t. This mainly depended on the content you filled into your form. But there was another factor, that could have pushed the interviewer into your direction – the legibility of your handwriting.
Of course, you could have had good qualifications and you would have gone through with it. Still, it would’ve taken HR hours to copy all the weird looking letters into their system. That’s precious time – and time is what again?
You get it!
Companies conclusively threw themselves into digitalization at early stages. They started profiting from it quickly and heavily. Finally, everyone was able to read letters and words on the computer. That saved a lot of energy and time and the employee’s frustration due to issues as described above dissolved.
Now obviously, we are way passed this point. But besides progress and success, innovation also means challenges, that OCR has to overcome. The age of cloud computing creates a whole new market and brings millions of opportunities for its users. To take advantage of these opportunities, you will have to put your data-reading ability and infrastructure on the pedestal – AGAIN.
Think back to the happy employees we talked about earlier and therefor the better usage of time and resources. Everything, just because we were able to read something with our eyes.
We now find ourselves at a point at which reading takes on a whole different shape.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) describes the conversion of handwritten, typed or printed documents into machine-encoded text. That allows you to make any type of unstructured content searchable and readable. A huge benefit for your customers and employees. It connects to various softwares such as INFOR OS and is usable in PlugIns like Zapier or Integromat to automate your processes.
A lot of weight falls off of business managers shoulders. Since the integration of valuable information is now fully automated, they are able to refocus their strengths.
As part of our IDM-Capture process, this innovative process enables companies of any scale to unify all sorts of data. It automates the process of accurate documentation and gives you the chance to refocus and increase productivity.
It helps you work faster, more effectively and it improves your customer relations by miles.
