Document Capture and OCR

Document Capture and OCR

Document Capture refers to uploading documents in digital format or by scanning paper documents to an electronic document repository where relevant data can be extracted. For instance, invoices can be scanned, uploaded and data such as client number, company name, date, etc. can be read by the OCR system.

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) or text recognition uses intelligent algorithms to convert scanned document images into editable text. This operation can be performed in specific areas of a form.
