Integrated Imaging Systems is an Australian company specializing in Document Imaging and Information Management. Their Document Imaging System allows users to scan consignment notes and then automatically extract the document number using OCR. The document is then filed in a database. One of the greatest challenges is that the documents originate from multiple sources and have various templates, so the traditional approach using a rigid form template does not work. SmartOCR SDK offers dynamic templates so that users can define multiple templates and the software automatically matches them to the appropriate document layouts. Another advantage is that the OCR region sizes are dynamically adjusted to fit the data fields. Furthermore, the region is correctly located even if the page has been offset or rotated during scanning.
Alcoa, the world leader in the production of aluminum parts, needed to automate a production process in their Howmet Castings division. The constructors were trying to scan a part with a 3-D scanner and automatically extract its serial number. The challenge with this approach was that the resulting image was of very low quality and no general-purpose OCR software would recognize it correctly.
When the Australian CGI Group, a systems integration company, needed to apply OCR in a Bank Management Information System for one of their clients, they faced a problem. They defined a zone in scanned documents with fixed layout. Next they planned to extract the data from that zone using OCR software and populate a database. The problem was that on each individual document the zone to be extracted was offset or rotated a little when printed and then scanned. SmartSoft's dynamic templates technology was the right technology to solve that problem.
TagsWeekly is a global online fashion retailer. In their day-to-day operations they need to deal with long receipts, which used to take a lot of time and was error prone. The idea was to use a scanner, which supports Long Paper Scanning mode to convert the receipt rolls to image files. Next use OCR software to extract the UPC (barcode) and product descriptions from the receipt, match them and create an Excel table.
