Reduce manual data entry with automated data capture
Each day we complete a variety of paper forms – questionnaires, credit applications, evaluation forms, benefit forms and many others. To collect the data from paper forms, organisations have two options – manual data entry or automated data capture software.
Manual data entry is expensive and labour intensive. It is time-consuming and prone to human error. Automated data capture software, such as TeleForm or ABBYY FlexiCapture has become indispensable for collecting and processing information, as the data is automatically read and captured from data entry fields.
Paper documents and forms are still pervasive. In fact, according to Forrester, 80% of all information processed is still paper-based. However, many business are embarking on their digital transformation journey and moving to intelligent electronic forms.

Convert handwritten paper forms to an electronic image.
Form data verification
Automatically identify, classify, and extract form data and flag misread fields or characters for human verification.
Form data export
Once verified, form data is exported to your chosen database (e.g. CSV, XML, Excel), business repositories or third-party storage systems.
