Optical Character Recognition

Optical Character Recognition

Intelligent recognition and digitization of invoices and the content of other paper documents

Digitization of documents is an initial stage aimed at preparing an appropriate form of a document, enabling further use of the information contained therein. However, the scanned document allows only the display of data on the screen, it does not improve the analysis or use of the data contained therein in further processes or systems.

The solution to this problem is to apply automation using the optical character recognition method OCR. Intelligent content recognition from invoices or other paper documents enables smooth delivery of data to users’ systems and improvement of business processes.
