  • Business Opportunity

    The benefits of customer automation are well understood:

    • Improved customer experience
    • Better working capital management
    • Faster receipt of demand signals
    • Increased market share and revenue
    • Lower cost to serve
  • Business Challenge

    While most customer systems can export data in a readable format, some customers insist on sending image files to suppliers. Historically there were automation concerns receiving these types of orders due to the image to data conversion error rates. This meant these orders needed to continue to be manual and limited the automation value to both the customer and the seller

  • Business Solution

    Extract Useful Data from Documents with the Best OCR Text Recognition Software. The Elemica Optical Character Recognition Module combines optical character recognition (OCR) to extract data from the image of a business document entered as fax or scanned a document.

    How does OCR image recognition technology work? When scanned, faxed or emailed purchase orders from customers are received, they are processed via the Elemica OCR software solution. Elemica OCR engine translates image and text making them available for automated Order Entry into your ERP system.

    OCR is the process of extracting words (and possibly layout and formatting information) from image files such as faxes and PDFs attached to emails and converting them to text. After an image has been scanned into a computer, OCR software translates text images into real text that the computer can read. OCR works best on typed text, either in cases when an original printout has been missing or in scanning printed or typewritten sheets.

    The Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Module allows image files to be digitized, and then further processed through QuickLink Email SELL. Customer service follows the same work process as traditional QuickLink Email SELL customers.
