By combining Parascript's handwriting recognition with Taskmaster rules processing, we are taking a giant leap forward in providing advanced technology in an easily accessible solution for end users
Tarrytown, NY and Boulder, CO (PRWEB) March 8, 2007
Datacap Inc. and Parascript, LLC today announced a partnership that will enhance Datacap's flagship document capture software, Taskmaster, with Parascript's intelligent character recognition (ICR) technology. This integration provides customers an optimal solution to process documents that require freeform handwriting for convenient completion. Such forms include subscription forms, order forms, change of address documents, surveys and applications.
Taskmaster remotely scans and indexes a wide variety of form layouts. Parascript ICR software recognizes and extracts data from any combination of cursive and hand printed information on these forms. Customers utilizing the technology have reported as much as a threefold increase in productivity with the integrated solution.
Both the Baltimore Sun and TV Guide have deployed Datacap Taskmaster with Parascript ICR to process handwritten subscription forms. A brief demonstration of the Baltimore Sun application can be viewed at http://www.datacap.com/webinars/dowjones.
"By combining Parascript's handwriting recognition with Taskmaster rules processing, we are taking a giant leap forward in providing advanced technology in an easily accessible solution for end users," said Datacap CEO Scott Blau. "Natural handwriting recognition, even for intense documents like subscription forms, is the only possible solution in many instances, and we are delighted to partner with Parascript to offer an integrated solution that addresses this very pressing need."
"Datacap's focus on providing their customers with advanced forms processing solutions bodes well with Parascript's state-of-the-art handwriting recognition. We are pleased to augment their solution with this new capability," said Brian Ball, Parascript's vice president of sales for forms.
