Document imaging is the electronic capture, storage,
management, and retrieval of documents that
have been converted from paper to digitized form.
ECM is the umbrella term for a range of technologies to store and maintain corporate knowledge, including document imaging and management, workflow, enterprise report management, e-mail management and more. A properly executed ECM solution helps control the cost of doing business by reducing cycle times, lowering cost-per-unit, improving customer service and accomplishing more work with the same number of employees.
OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is the process of converting scanned images to text files to allow for full text searching or text extraction for word processing.
What Does ICR Stand For?
ICR (intelligent Character Recognition) or Hand-Print Recognition is a pattern based recognition. Hand written text is more difficult for computers to recognize had usually has a higher error rate than printed text.
What Does OMR Stand For?
OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) is the Recognition of marks commonly used on forms, such as check boxes or bubbles.
Access to an electronic repository is far easier to secure than a physical file cabinet in an open office and much more convenient than retrieving documents from multiple file rooms or off-site storage. User’s rights can be configured on a granular level to protect privileged documents and data while ensuring multiple workers have immediate access to the information they need. Private information, such as a social security number, can be "blacked out" or redacted to balance the need of access versus security. The repository itself is easily backed up to a second, or multiple, server(s) or archive media for a top-tier disaster recovery strategy.
