StarOcr Acquisition

With StarOCR, indexing and classifying documents scanned under formats such as BMP, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, as well as PDF type documents is rapid and straightforward. StarOCR automatically loads the index database used by StarFind, and functioning as a client/server, manages data entry pooling and simultaneous index updating.

Digitally recorded images in JPEG, BMP and TIFF formats, are anchored to reference points and repositioned to ensure correct alignment, rotation and parallelism.

Images are analyzed and automatically classified using ADR (automatic document recognition) techniques.
Each folder owns its own control template which is used to define both index fields and storage location.

Data thoroughly controlled. An OCR engine is activated to automatically generate the indice for each document found in the folder. Additional control fields (obligatory field, optional field …) can also be included as test parameters. All documents successfully processed are transferred to a “Finished Documents” folder. After completing this document preparation stage, StarFind takes over, automatically indexing and archiving images. StarFind.
A CSV extension file is generated containing all elements required to index and archive the information using your preferred archiving program..
Functioning as a Client/Server, setting up tasks as well as correcting data can be performed
simultaneously. Multiple data entry is also enabled by pooling data entry.
