Workshare, a long-time leader working with the legal industry’s entrusted content, announced the general availability of the Workshare OCR Server. Users will have instant access to edit scanned documents and share information that was previously only available as an image file in PDF format.

The Workshare OCR Server provides instant processing of image based files reproducing not only the words, but the formatting of documents with high levels of accuracy. Users are now able to “cut and paste” the information, revise it, reformat it, and incorporate it into discovery responses, pleadings, and communications with clients or other parties.

As a server based solution, the OCR process takes place in the background and makes the conversion from image to text invisible to all users. The Workshare OCR Server leverages industry leading text recognition software to provide unparalleled accuracy for image to text conversions and eliminates the need for additional OCR software on the user’s desktop.

"Organizations are demanding document comparison and recognition solutions to support a full range of PDF files and documents," said John Grillos, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Workshare. "With the Workshare OCR Server customers will have easy access to image based files, contracts, and correspondences ultimately improving operations, performance and service to their customers.”
