Automated Data Extraction

Automatic data extraction technology takes the burden off of staff

Gathering the important information from business documents is a crucial business process – and also very manual at many organisations. Staff are devoted to reviewing each document and manually keying data into various business systems, creating tedious and error-prone tasks. Moreover, as organisations and processing demands grow, so do their workforce requirements.

Once documents are captured and classified, Brainware Intelligent Capture tools can automatically and accurately extract the critical information - including machine printed, hand-printed or bar coded values. Brainware by Hyland data capture leverages the following technologies:

  • OCR - Optical Character Recognition, used to extract machine-printed characters
  • ICR - Intelligent Character Recognition, used to extract hand-printed characters
  • OMR - Optical Mark Recognition, used to determine a selection from a list of choices (i.e. check boxes and filled circles)
  • BCR - Bar Code Recognition, extracts data from bar codes located on the document

These capture solutions are entirely flexible to fit your needs, allowing you to configure the capture process for each document type – giving you full control over data identification and collection.

Once the data is captured, it is then validated before being shared with your other systems. Extracted data can both be used for automated document indexing in OnBase, or another content management system, and it can be used to update your other business information management systems.
