What is automated data capture?
When you have a large volume of data to enter into a computer system, the most common method of doing so is to input them manually. That means you would need someone to look at the files and determine which information goes where. This is not only time consuming but you are also wasting a huge amount of resources just by having someone devote their time to manually enter data. That is why you need to expedite this process by implementing an automated data capture software. It can automatically extract the essential information and formulate a database for you.
Why the need for automation?
Not only is manual entry a waste of time and resources, it can also lead to a lot of human errors. By implementing an automated system, you eliminate the possibility of that and also, it will be a much more efficient process as well. You will be able to allocate the resources that you used for manual to other areas that requires critical thinking. Within a short amount of time, you will be able to see the returns from having an automated system. You can also process invoices automatically as well.
How is this possible?
Automated data capture is only possible with the help of OCR, optical character recognition. With it, you are able to recognize scanned documents and from there, you can compile all the essential information that you need. OCR enables you to extract information from scans that would normally be images. A great automated data capture system is available from CVISION. They are one of the leaders in data capture technology. To find out more you can click on the buttons above or contact CVISION directly.
