Forms Processing Solutions

Automate forms processing.

Automatic entry and processing of forms
helps reduce manual processing costs.

Manual processing of forms is not only tedious, time consuming and labor intensive: it is also error prone and costly. ABBYY technology helps eliminate these issues via solutions that automate the extraction of data from paper forms:

  • credit card applications
  • questionnaires
  • insurance claims
  • and many others.

To process a form, information from data fields (which may be handwritten) is digitized and then:

  • Data is automatically read and "captured" from the relevant fields
  • The forms themselves are digitized, stored as document images and archived

In most cases, form processing is considered to be complete as soon as the data from entire batch of forms has been captured, checked and saved in a database. To collect the data from paper forms, there are two approaches -
resource-intensive manual data entry, or use of software for automated forms processing.

Manual data entry is costly and laborious. It has a range of drawbacks for companies, such as delays in recording data, incorrect entries and increased labor costs. Software for automatic data entry and IT-assisted processing of forms, such as ABBYY FlexiCapture, help to reduce these disadvantages.

Transform streams of forms and documents of
any structure and complexity into business-
ready data.
