Leverage OCR to improve your workflows

It’s easy to mistake Optical Character Recognition (OCR) as a one-trick pony. 

After all, pulling text out of an image to make it usable in other applications is an impressive trick.  Don’t be content to think that’s all OCR can do for you though.  By combining OCR output with other technologies, it’s possible to make substantial improvements to workflows throughout an organization.  Incoming document workflows are the first and most obvious place that OCR can make a major impact.
