Forms Processing

Forms Processing

Process forms faster by reducing manual keying by 80% or more

Forms Data Capture solutions are used by many companies due to the high level of automation that is possible and the significant time savings that can be made. It is one of the most widely used applications for document scanning and OCR/ICR technology.

Forms types, in use at most companies, include orders, applications, claims, change requests and survey forms received from customers as well as internally generated forms such as expenses claims, request forms, time sheets and HR records. The data on these forms is often business critical so if it can be captured and transferred to internal systems quickly and accurately it is a huge benefit to the organisation.

Unlike other documents, forms are often just used as a temporary method of transferring information from person to person or to a business system. Therefore, our solution includes interfaces to databases, CRM and other business systems as well as export of form PDF images to document management systems.

Benefits of Automated Forms Processing:

  • Speed up data entry – reduce the manual effort of keying data, save time and money and make business critical data available to the organisation sooner
  • Improve customer service – access information faster to allow staff to respond to customer requests and enquires immediately thereby improving efficiency and customer satisfaction
  • Increase data accuracy – increase the accuracy of data acquired from the form by using the latest OCR technology with built in error checking and database lookup validation
  • Capture all data types – extract all data types; machine printed text, hand printed text, barcodes (1D and 2D) and checkboxes with a single capture solution
