Is there a difference between OCR to make a document text-searchable, and OCR that can extract the specific information that you need from a document, grouping it into separate categories?
It sounds like you would be interested in document automation software, which does exactly what you describe. General OCR software can take any file and make it text-searchable and editable. Document automation takes this a step further, by allowing you to specify data fields that interest you and extract answers into a database. Trapeze from CVISION provides advanced document automation services. It classifies incoming documents, recognizes data fields, extracts relevant information, and verifies it with existing data.
