Standardized forms such as invoices have many separate fields, or zones, containing data. Each zone contains distinct information that is essential to business processes. Forms processing has traditionally been done via manual means because there was no technology that could adequately identify and translate the various zones properly. The critical nature of the data required utmost accuracy, and so companies continued to rely on manual data entry due to the lack of an alternative. However, recent developments have led to the creation of zone OCR, which can accurately process forms of all kinds.
What is Zone OCR?
OCR, or optical character recognition, is not a particularly new technology, having been around since the first half of the 20th century, but until recently it has not been able to compete with human ability. Earlier OCR systems were either inaccurate, slow, or both. They could not identify the zone on forms and so failed to properly convert the required data. Zone OCR is a technological development that allows OCR to easily recognize data zones. Forms such as invoices and health records have many different fields, each filled with important data whose integrity cannot afford to be compromised. Zone OCR is able to successfully recognize the zones from the form and then convert the needed data into text. Once OCR has done its work your document experience becomes more efficient.
Zone OCR Software
Manual data entry is prone to human error due to the repetitive nature of the task. Any mistakes or alterations that are made to important forms will result in negative consequences for the business. Having employees manually process forms is time consuming, tedious, and costly. With zone OCR you can use technology to convert all your forms into an electronic format, making them more compact and accessible. Once converted into text, the forms can be saved to a database or have its data extracted. CVISION Technologies offers zone OCR software powered by the most accurate OCR engine in the market.
