Document Capture is the Onramp to Analytics

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is commonly used to convert different types of typed documents, such as scanned paper documents, PDF files or images captured by a digital camera, into editable and searchable data. ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) has more nuanced definitions, but in most industry vernacular is used generically to refer to the recognition of handwriting, ranging anywhere from block-print to cursive

Dark Data – Rediscovering This ‘Hidden’ Business Intelligence Treasure in Your Document Capture Process

This is a huge opportunity for companies to look to intelligent recognition technologies to capture and better leverage this data, particularly that found in both structured (field-based), and unstructured (freeform) handwriting. The study finds that, in general the presence of handwriting on these forms is substantial, but adoption of handwriting recognition technology is low: · 40% of survey respondents said half or more of their inbound forms have handwritten data fields. · 6% of companies surveyed currently use ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition), meaning that most don’t even have the base technology that would provide access to unstructured handwritten data · 35% of ICR users from the survey report a payback period of 12 months or less on ICR applications; and 55% see ROI within 18 months. · Overall, respondents indicated an average productivity improvement of 31% was likely if recognition of hand-written text could be automated; 28% said they would expect a 50 % or more improvement
