Optical Character Recognition – OCR Software
Enabling Digital Transformation Through Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
As offices make the transition from paper archives to electronic databases, a great deal of effort is spent on converting documents into a usable, digital format. When you scan a text document, the resulting output is just an image file that does not facilitate easy interaction with or utilization of the text information. In order to work with the document electronically, users will need to make the file text-searchable through Optical Character Recognition technology, or OCR technology, to enable easy, instant information search and more efficient document processing. Instead of retyping paper documents, businesses can use OCR technology to automatically identify and extract the text.
OCR software enables businesses to recognize and understand the text information contained in their scanned image documents. With text recognition software, organizations can make scanned documents fully text-searchable and indexed in their document repositories. Without OCR, searching for vital information can take hours (or more) of costly and frustrating labor as employees sift through image files looking for keywords manually. In situations where finding relevant information is critical, such as presenting financial documents in an audit, or locating forms to serve as evidence in a legal proceeding, the old, manual method of searching scanned documents can even threaten the core health of a business.
With business OCR software in the scanned document workflow, image files become fully text-searchable, allowing users to perform a simple, instant keyword search on a repository to discover the information they need. OCR is truly the digital information equivalent of finding the needle in the haystack. This eliminates the need for manual data entry when converting physical paper to digital, allowing companies to re-focus time and resources on higher value-added tasks. OCR character recognition software creates efficiencies in document processing that allow businesses to step firmly toward the paperless office in the age of digital transformation.
