Optical Character Recognition

Digitally transforming businesses and creating next generation operating models in NZ

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is the use of technology to distinguish printed or handwritten text characters inside digital images or physical documents such as PDFs.

Widely used to support automated processing, businesses use OCR to convert text from documents into data that edited, searched, stored or manipulated.

Using OCR organisations can extract data for use as inputs in automated processing such as Robotic Process Automation. For a complete understanding of Optical Character Recognition download our free e-book New Technologies Give Rise to Content Intelligence.

Moreover, using leading technology platforms like ABBYY Optical Character Recognition can offer NZ organisations a capability that provides rapid benefits realisation, fast payback and potentially high return on investment.

Optical Character Recognition explained (comically)

Content Intelligence – The Evolution of OCR Technology

Put simply Content Intelligence is Ai applied to content.

Traditional Optical Character Recognition and extraction was based on the development of templates limiting the effectiveness of the capability in some instances.

Leading OCR platforms now leverage advances in Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Natural Language processing to offer businesses a more flexible and scalable solution.

  • Digitise the document workflow
  • Optimise document processes
  • Multi-level document classification
  • Data validation and control
  • Visibility into data and process

What is being achieved with Optical Character Recognition?

Elections NZ now processes around 1.2 million scanned ballot papers from local elections in a 16-day period with the help of OCR and Content Intelligence Technology.

Council voting papers are also complicated by the need to include an average of five elections on each ballot paper and provide different methods of sequencing of candidates (alphabetic, pseudo random and random).

  • Processing with up to 1,500 different form formats
  • Supports elections for 42 different local councils
  • Manages the complexity of two different voting systems (First Past the Post, and Single Transferable Vote)

What are the potential benefits of Optical Character Recognition combined with automation?

Innovative businesses leaders are using Optical Character Recognition in conjunction with technologies like Robotic Process Automation in NZ to deliver short-term business imperatives and create a platform for long-term transformation.

Removing mundane tasks through automation creates new possibilities and allows your people to focus on innovation, creativity and customers.
