Create OCR (Optical Character Recognition) Software powered by AI

Integrate OCR into your custom software for accelerated data extraction and streamlined processes, unlocking efficiency and enhancing user experience

What is OCR (Optical Character Recognition)? How does it work?

OCR or Optical Character Recognition is a process that translates text from an image into a format readable by machines. When you scan a document or receipt and save it as an image file, traditional text editing tools cannot be employed for tasks like editing, searching, or word counting. Nevertheless, OCR enables the conversion of the image into a text document, preserving the contents as text data.

What are the benefits of using AI Machine Translation?

Why use OCR? Some of the key advantages of OCR technology are the following:

Enhanced Operational Efficiency

OCR software enables businesses to streamline document workflows and digital processes, providing capabilities such as automated verification, reviews, editing, and analysis of hand-filled forms. This eliminates the need for manual document processing and accelerates data entry tasks. Additionally, the software facilitates quick database searches for specific terms, eliminating the manual sorting of files.

Text Searchability

One of the key advantages of OCR is the ability to transform both existing and new documents into a searchable knowledge repository. Businesses can leverage data analytics software for automated knowledge processing, enhancing overall efficiency.

Integration with Artificial Intelligence

OCR seamlessly integrates with broader artificial intelligence solutions adopted by businesses. This includes tasks such as scanning and reading number plates and road signs in self-driving cars, detecting brand logos in social media posts, or identifying product packaging in advertising images. By incorporating OCR into their AI strategies, businesses can make informed marketing and operational decisions, leading to cost savings and an enhanced customer experience.

What are some use cases of AI Machine Translation across industries?

Here are some instances where OCR can be useful:

Finance and Banking

OCR is frequently used in finance to process and extract information from financial documents, such as loan application forms, invoices, receipts, and statements. This streamlines data entry, reduces manual errors, and accelerates transaction processing.


In healthcare, OCR is used for digitizing patient records, prescriptions, and medical forms. This not only enhances the accessibility of information but also supports the integration of electronic health records (EHRs) and facilitates efficient data management.

Transportation and Logistics

OCR plays a crucial role in logistics by automating the recognition of shipping labels, tracking numbers, and other relevant information on packages. This speeds up the sorting and routing of shipments, improving overall supply chain efficiency.

Retail and E-commerce

OCR technology is often used in retail for inventory management, automating the extraction of product information from invoices and packaging. In e-commerce, OCR helps in extracting data from scanned documents, enabling quick and accurate order processing.

Legal Services

Legal professionals can also use OCR in their workflows. They can use OCR to convert scanned legal documents, contracts, and court records into searchable and editable text. This facilitates efficient document review, information retrieval, and legal research.
