OSDCRM – OCR STREAM DATA CAPTURE AND ROUTING MODULE – automated capture and routing for image documents using OCR, Barcode and RegEX
This optional module provides extremely powerful automatic capture and routing capabilities for image documents using OCR, Barcode and RegEX (Regular Expressions). This module can be configured to monitor an unlimited number of independently configured input sources. Each input source can be configured to process scanned documents automatically in a number of ways according to the data that is extracted from text by OCR, or barcodes included in the images processed. Using RegEX (Regular Expressions) and VB scripting, templates can be created to search for and extract specific information from the data stream anywhere that it may occur. Regular Expressions are a powerful technology used for finding and extracting data or patterns of data within a text stream. Extracted or derived information is then used to populate specific fields in the Millennium document database or used to route the document within the system. Unlike the Zone OCR capabilities in our OCR server, OSDCRM is not constrained by predefined fixed locations (zones) within an image. Data can be found and extracted anywhere from within a scanned document, providing an extremely flexible way to process documents that may not have the desired information in the same place, or vary as to the content. Extracted OCR and barcode data can also be written to a specified file for additional processing by external applications. OSDCRM can also be used in conjunction with the Dispatch Server to provide additional email and network delivery capabilities supported by that module.
