What is

Data Capture?

Streamline the capture, recognition, and classification of internal and external business documents

Capture automation is a Digital Business Automation capability that utilizes natural language processing, text analytics, Intelligent Optical Character Recognition (IOCR), and AI machine learning technologies. It identifies, classifies, and extracts data from unstructured or variable paper or electronic documents and passes the data and metadata along for further processing.

Save your knowledge workers time and eliminate errors by allowing Capture technology to triage the content and data entering your business. Enhanced security and compliance. As an added benefit, you will experience enhanced security and compliance with data collection automation.

how it works

You take ingested documents (emails, files, scans, faxes, etc.) and upload them to extract, detect, and classify data needed.

Data Capture is best used in repetitive high-volume work where the data needed to be extracted is known. Thus, in our Automation Alignment Matrix, its best fit is in the High Volume / Repetitive quadrant. However, it can still have a place in the other quadrants as well. 

Capabilities & Advantages

Supports input from scanners, faxes, emails, digital files, images, and physical documents. Multichannel capture recognizes data and extracts it seamlessly through automated data collection. A data capture system that supports multiple file types provides more versatility, making it easier to digitize and access all your files.

Machine learning automates the processing of complex, unknown, internal, and external formats and highly variable documents. Data capture automation helps save time and reduce errors made from manual entry. There is less paperwork to search through, making it easier to find information quickly as needed. It also ensures a smooth function using AI technologies, natural language processing, and IOCR.

Configure your capture applications using embedded rules to speed deployment. Our data collection technology follows the rules you apply. Add rules to ensure the application works the way you want.

Information will be blocked out according to the user’s role. Only people with access to the program can oversee data extraction and see the information uploaded to storage.

Input with mobile devices, applications, or internal systems and export with range of applications and content storage systems. Our program easily integrates with existing applications, so you can continue using systems that work but with an additional enhancement.
