OCR scanning is the final piece in the paperless puzzle

January 31st, 2017

Of all the phrases used in the world of business, ‘paperless office’ is one that remains prominent and discussed by leaders in the sector. Unlike other ‘buzzwords’ this is not a throwaway term, with many predicting document scanning technology it is set to transform the working world. However, while this may be true, there are some that remain cynical about its relevance or practical use beyond theoretical discussion. OCR scanning services are the final piece in the paperless puzzle says Pearl Scan, proving why, when used together, document scanning technology is revolutionary.

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is the process of converting physical documents into editable, searchable, virtual files. With OCR scanning services, information is then imported into Microsoft Word, JPEG, TIFF and PDF documents in a fully text searchable format. Printed tables, bank statements and more can also be easily transformed into Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. OCR technology takes scanned data and prepares it for practical use. With just one process, information captured from paper documents can be transformed into valuable, operational data.

Naveed Ashraf, Managing Director at Pearl Scan says, “So many offices are using document scanning services now to enjoy paperless working environments, yet there is still some confusion into the capabilities of this technology. Understandably, there are concerns over the compatibility of these new, virtual files with existing technical infrastructure and processes that are used. OCR scanning services solve these problems, seamlessly integrating all newly digitised files with current virtual working systems.”

Pearl Scan offers OCR scanning services alongside all of its other specialist scanning solutions, enabling its clients to utilise document scanning technology and enjoy the business benefits that it brings. Whether using a bulk document scanning service, invoice scanning automation, digital mailroom services or HR document management, Pearl Scan uses OCR scanning and conversion to give its client quick and easy access to the data that is captured.

Document scanning services are revolutionising the way businesses operate, saving them money, time and space and with OCR technology, a fully functioning paperless office can be easily achieved.
