Optical Character Recognition and Intelligent Character Recognition
Unisoft Datatech is the preeminent supplier of back office administrative services, including scanning and indexing, and specialized scanning services for optical character recognition (OCR) and intelligent character recognition (ICR), as well as document scanning and indexing, and data capture services.
Optical Character Recognition technology has improved tremendously since its initial use in the 1970s. The process involves the translation of scanned text from handwritten, printed or typed format to electronic coded format. It is often used to convert hard copy articles, books, memos ad documents for electronic filing or online review. Once the image is converted into text, it can be searched for specific words or terms and edited in the same way a native electronic document can be edited, filed or otherwise manipulated. Our staff is skilled in the use and refinement of OCR equipment and techniques and we can ensure that your optical character recognition project will be completed accurately and on time.
Intelligent Character Recognition technology became popular in the early 1990s and we have refined the process of delivery these ICR services so that our clients always receive the most timely, dependable ICR scanning services available in the market. Intelligent character recognition is an advanced form of optical character recognition which includes handwriting recognition and an intelligent system that ‘learns’ how to read fonts and handwriting as the document is scanned. This process allows the system to refine its recognition and update the data in the data base to reflect the new information. Accuracy can be as high as 97% and, our experienced staff will monitor the recognition process to ensure that the system is interpreting information accurately.
Our complete suite of scanning services includes scanning with flatbed scanners, optical character recognition (OCR), optical mark reading (OMR), and scanning and editing and indexing services. We also have stable, dependable partnerships with other service providers and, where appropriate, we can provide specialized scanning services for high resolution, and rapid scanning tasks. The scanned images are stored and converted into any file format, to suit your needs, and to comply with the specifications of your document management systems. All data is verified and validated for complete accuracy.
