Lexmark - OCR in Dynamics NAV
Optical image processing
The automatic character recognition software, better known as OCR software (Optical Character Recognition software) can through optical image processing recognize the signs by analyzing pixel-based patterns in scanned paper documents. The best OCR software can within seconds scan and recognize any type of document in a very short time. An OCR scanner can thus both with great speed and precision extract and convert informations from paper documents into data that your ERP system can easily handle.
What specifically happens is that the scanned document, which in fact is a picture of the text document and therefore not editable, is analyzed by the OCR software which then converts the informations into editable text.
In short, with an the OCR scanning system you will not have to enter the information from for example a scanned invoice in Microsoft Dynamics NAV manually.
