  • OCR Software / Data Capture Software

    Optical Character Recognition Software: Increase efficiency through automation of paper-based processes and intelligent OCR software to transform paper into searchable, manageable information.

    datacapturechallengesWe know that effective and efficient data capture can be challenging for your organization and an important part of this is optical character recognition software (OCR).  In order to provide the optimal optical character recognition software, we have carefully selected certain technology partners for their robust capabilities and flexible architecture and have aligned ourselves with ABBYY USA, Canon, and Prevalent Software to deliver robust data capture and OCR solutions. 

    Our OCR Software and Data Capture Solutions Include:

    Quillix Capture - Data Capture Software

    Quillix™ Capture is a distributed capture process management system that streamlines the process of acquiring and creating documents.  Its innovative Web Client provides scanning, importing, and indexing of documents easily from anywhere around the world.  Quillix is built with a plug-in infrastructure that supports a wide variety of expansion modules including widespread support for capturing data from and into pdf format. For more information about Quillix Capture, please see the appropriate product area of this website.

    Quillix Capture is available with an extension module called MuWave Classify / Extract. This provides extremely high volume OCR without per-page costs as well as the ability to automatically extract mission critical index values from documents. The extraction engine uses rules including regular expression search, text search from full page OCR, or zonal OCR with either a text search of OCR information from that zone or regular expression. A typical usage of this product is to OCR a scanned document (or an image file, or any type of electronic file), locate a certain field name such as "invoice number," and then extract the value associated with this field.  MuWave Classify / Extract provides a powerful alternative to more complex products when more advanced extraction isn't required.  Find out more about MuWave Classify / Extract.
