Data Capture / OCR / Metadata

Electronic documents are more than just pretty pictures. Many of our clients need useable data that can be analyzed, crunched, and shared. While it's easy to convert paper into electronic images, the real challenge is to make the data accessible. We can make your documents searchable and transcribe the data from your paper or electronic documents into the critical metadata elements using a combination of Optical Character Recognition (OCR), manual data entry or automated processes such as barcodes. We have industrial strength tools including multi-vote OCR, domestic and data entry capabilities.

Once we have the data, we can deliver it anyway you want it: SGML, XML, MS Excel or plain comma separated files, it's up to you. Versatility, quality and customer service is the key for document capture solutions.
