Since we are rapidly moving towards the “paperless” business model, scanning printed and even handwritten materials happens more often than you think. An average person might scan a piece of document, recipe or textbook on a rare occasion, but there are industries and institutions where scanning is part of their daily work.
Libraries and universities, for example, are doing a tremendous task of scanning endless volumes of fiction books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, reference books, etc. They want to digitize everything they have in paper format in order to fit in with new rules of the educational technology era.
Though scanned documents have helped many industries transform, improve and expedite their performance, this format has a few serious flaws. For one, a scanned document is only a photo, and as such, it is neither editable nor searchable. That proves to be a problem in many situations. For example, if a bank employee needs to create a report using some scanned receipts, there are only two ways to do it: by manual retyping of all data into a usable spreadsheet, which could take a very long time, or by using the OCR technology.
Optical character recognition (OCR) technology is the best solution for scanned document management because it is designed to recognize image text. Since OCR conversion is complex technology that cannot always convert scanned PDFs into 100% accurate editable counterparts, it is important to utilize a solution for your needs that uses the most advanced and powerful OCR technology.
