Some documents are difficult or impossible to automate with OCR. For example, documents with non-standard layouts, unconstrained handwriting or very poor scan quality. In applications like invoice processing, fully automating the data entry can require expensive software and weeks of consulting. Even after all that expense, many users miss the interface and data validations that their accounting software entry screens provide. In cases like this, SimpleIndex can help improve data entry efficiency while archiving your scanned originals at the same time. Here’s how it works: Scan a batch of documents for data entry Place the SimpleIndex window side-by-side with your data entry window Enter the data normally, reading from the scanned image in SimpleIndex Press the hotkey combo to transfer the data to SimpleIndex Save the image and repeat with the next oneIn this configuration, SimpleIndex captur

Many document scanning solutions use Zone OCR to obtain index data from the page, while SimpleIndex improves upon this time-tested but ultimately limited model with its unique Dynamic OCR feature. Let’s look at the difference between the two methods: Zone OCR Zone OCR is used to read document indexes or tags from text on the page. It is a great way to automate the data entry associated with scanning documents. However, there are several limitations to zone OCR that must be overcome: Index information must be in the exact same place on every pageDocuments shift and skew during scanning, causing the zones to not line upIf surrounding lines or text on the document are too close, they can encroach on the zone Dynamic OCR SimpleIndex overcomes these limitations by using Dynamic OCR technology to locate the desired text even when it moves around on the page. Our simplified version of Dynamic OCR works great for many types of documents at a fraction of the cost of other solutions. Index
