  • ABBYY FlexiCapture for Mailrooms

    Common Pain Points for Mailrooms:

    Business and government agencies frequently suffer from an overwhelming amount of information entering the organization. This large amount of frequently time-sensitive information comes in many forms including forms, email, new account documents, and customer and partner correspondence.  The time sensitive nature of these documents requires that they become visible more quickly to the organization in order for them to respond within an appropriate time frame. The lack of immediate visibility may result in a reduction in the speed in which the company responds, loss of revenue, or slowness in the recognition of an urgent matter.  


    A company mail room receives a legal document informing the company about a pending legal action. The document is sent through intra-company mail to the legal department but instead of getting to the correct person the information ends up being received by someone in an unrelated legal department.  Since the subject is outside of their area of control the letter is then redirected to the responsible department resulting in a five day delay from the postmark date. This reduces the time frame which the company has to respond to the legal matter by one full week.

    MuWave Classify / Extract QSX

    MuWave Classify / Extract is a Quillix Server Extension module (QSX) which provides automatic classification and extraction functions from a variety of different document types. This solution works by first classifying the document and then once it has determined the document type it extracts critical data from within the document. The system uses three different methods to locate data from a document including a text string, regular expression, or barcode.  Search zones can be specified to limit the extraction of data to a particular region of a document.

    Key Features of MuWave Classify / Extract:

    • Automatically determine the document type such that the extraction rules can be applied to each of the different document classes. 
    • User interface provided to create extraction rules using these methods
      • Search for a plain text string,
      • Search using a regular expression (REGEX),
      • Search using the identification of a barcode located within the document
      • Combined search using a text string, REGEX, or barcode value but applied to a search zone within the document.

    Benefits of MuWave Classify / Extract:

    • Eliminates the need for the use of much more costly document capture software when only a few index values are required to be extracted from within a document.
    • Eliminates the need to purchase a per-page or total page count licensed OCR licensed form processing solution.
    • Eliminates the need to add another document capture software application when a customer is already using Quillix Capture. 
    • Leverages the intuitive and easy to use indexing screen already familiar to Quillix Web users. 
    • Reduces administrative expense because the solution simply plugs into the Quillix capture platform without the requirement to install any other software. 

    Optional Features:

    Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) is optional should a need arise to extract handwriting information from a particular zone. The zone is identified using one of the available search techniques for location. This means that the system searches for something like a heading or "labelled field" information and then extracts the handwriting based upon the specified location relative to this field.
