CAPSYS® Announces Newest Release of Character Recognition Modules for CAPSYS CAPTURE
The improved modules enhance ability to automatically recognize characters
eliminating manual indexing and improving ROI
Colorado Springs, Colo. (December 8, 2009) – CAPSYS, a leading software developer of Web-based document capture and capture process management software, announced the release of their newest OCR and document processing modules that have been rebuilt from the ground up. These modules include Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR), Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Optical Mark Recognition (OMR). In addition, the new release includes a Document Classification module.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technologies are used to automatically recognize and extract data from scanned documents making the document capture process accurate and efficient. By using OCR technology, users only need to verify index data instead of performing manual data entry.
“These powerful modules further complement our vision of providing complete document capture solutions that allow our customers to manage their document capture processes more cost effectively and efficiently while continuing to focus on delivering a quicker return on investment,” said Greg Cooke, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CAPSYS.
The new CAPSYS release allows customers to choose from a variety of document processing modules based on their individual application needs. These modules include:
CAPSYS CAPTURE OCR – Provides functionality to automatically extract key index fields from a scanned document such as date, account number, invoice number, etc., for the purposes of automating the document index process. Also commonly referred to as “full-text OCR,” this module allows customers to recognize all of the text on a page and export that text with the release of the image.
CAPSYS CAPTURE Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) – Provides the ability to extract information containing human-marked data in the form of checkboxes from document forms such as surveys, applications, claim forms and standardized tests.
CAPSYS CAPTURE Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) - Provides the ability to recognize and extract handwritten information from scanned documents.
CAPSYS CAPTURE Document Classification - Provides the ability to automatically determine the document type by using advanced full-text, OCR and file analysis technologies. By matching keywords and phrases, CAPSYS CAPTURE can automatically determine the document type for purposes of properly processing the document based on specified business rules.
As its technology partner, CAPSYS selected ABBYY® and the FineReader® Engine. ABBYY is a leading provider of document conversion, data capture and linguistic software that provides the power to unlock data in documents and images and transform them into manageable and accessible information.
"Effective character recognition is paramount in successfully scanning and indexing customer data," said James P. Raboin, Chief Technology Officer for CAPSYS. "ABBYY provides us with a proven and reliable character recognition engine that enables our customers to dramatically improve their data processing and advanced document indexing needs. As our customers continue to embrace new technologies to improve their data capture processes, we believe it's a distinct advantage to have ABBYY’s FineReader Engine integrated into the CAPSYS application suite."
