What is data capture?
Data capture is the process of automatically extracting data from forms and invoices, using special software that is designed to instantly recognize and classify text. Data capture can accelerate the processing of similar documents by taking advantage of data fields to extract specific pieces of information. This can then be collected in an easy-to-use spreadsheet.
Using OCR for data capture
OCR is necessary for data capture because an OCR engine is responsible for recognizing the actual text within a scanned form or invoice. In other words, OCR uses optical technology to identify words and numbers in an image file, which then enables the data capture software to extract information. Data capture software is very easy to use; all you need to do is scan a form, and the rest is completely automated.
OCR data capture software
The best data capture software is the one that has the highest accuracy. This is because the primary value of OCR software lies in its ability to reliably convert printed text into electronic information. CVISION offers a data capture solution called Trapeze, which is powered by the most accurate OCR engine available. Trapeze even has handwriting recognition in order to allow you to process a wider range of forms. Contact CVISION for more information.
