The use of an imaging system
An imaging system enables you to automate the processing of scanned documents. When the process is not automated, entering information from each document, one by one, can be tedious and time-consuming. A document imaging system can help businesses cut costs by saving time and processing scanned files more efficiently. This is especially important for files that come in bulk, such as forms.
The need for OCR and ICR
OCR and ICR are necessary in an imaging system, because these technologies are what enable document imaging to function. OCR recognizes printed text, and ICR recognizes handwritten text. Therefore, in order to automatically process a form with some printed information and some text that is filled in by hand, you would need to use a document imaging system with both OCR and ICR capabilities.
