Optical Character Recognition Technology Today

Since the 1990s, Optical Character Recognition has come a long way and has revolutionized over the course. Today, it is more efficient, usable, and handy.
OCR, also known as text recognition, is software technology that changes printed or handwritten documents into an electronic form, which can not only be viewed but edited as well.
As this is quite a high-end software, you need professional expertise. FortySeven Software Professionals is here to offer OCR software for your business to meet modern-day needs.

How is OCR used?

OCR is used to save a lot of time and helps you get done with your scanning tasks. With OCR, you are good to scan and start editing instead of re-typing the scanned document as you cannot make any changes to it. OCR can turn a simple text image into an electronic MS Word document or pdf you can edit.

Besides that, OCR helps with the following:


Automated data processing

It automates data processing and fastens data entry. You do not need to enter data manually. This assists businesses greatly when it comes to maintaining records, receipts, or make changes to the printed reports.


Enhance User Experience

OCR further enhances user experience as an individual has to spend less time over the documentation. By simply scanning the document, it becomes possible to edit it any way you want. It quickens day-to-day business processes.


Data extraction and accounting

For businesses that do data extraction from receipts, invoices, or historical manual records for different accounting and financial needs, OCR is of great use. It aids accountants greatly as there is no need to create old reports over again that do not exist in the system.


Retrieving information from a PDF file

OCR offers a searchable PDF format, which makes retrieving information highly convenient. Searchable PDFs are different from normal PDFs as they allow you to search for any keywords, phrases, or names within the text. In no time, you can locate and retrieve all the information you desire.


Improve customer service

Another reason why OCR is of great benefit for businesses is that it improves customer service. Businesses can better handle their client's information, records, and history from the past.


Reduce costs

In a large company, there are a lot of employees that do manual data entry one way or another. It can be about maintaining records, adding client information, organizing project information, and much more. This way, the cost that comes attached to manual data entry and processing goes unrecognized. When realized, it adds a lot to the company's monthly budget.

What modern OCR comes

Modern OCR techniques are of quintessential help for businesses such as large enterprises and organizations. The major features of modern OCR software are:

With such advanced features, modern OCR technology is getting increasing popularity among organizations. Worldwide, large enterprises are relying on OCR to meet corporate goals.

Eliminate the need for paper

OCR further serves an important cause – it helps you go environmentally friendly. With OCR installed, companies can eliminate the need for paper by all means. Even though it is the ideal situation, businesses are very enthusiastic about it. This is another idea that is increasing the recognition and use of OCR.

With such great use and quick benefits, businesses are never going to lack in data processing.
