Streamlining Processing of Digital Forms
In today's business world, efficient form processing is crucial, whether between businesses, customers, or government entities. Forms such as applications, claims, shipping records, tax documents, surveys, and more are indispensable to daily operations.

However, despite the long-standing availability of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, achieving perfect data extraction from forms remains a challenge.

At Docuworx, we specialise in implementing DocuWare to help businesses streamline their form processing and bridge the gaps in automation. We ensure accurate and compliant data extraction by leveraging the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and digital forms.

The Limitations of OCR Technology

OCR has been a valuable tool but often falls short due to various quality issues. Poor image quality from mobile uploads, damaged paper scans, low-resolution settings, and other factors can hinder accurate data capture. Additionally, specialised content within forms—such as handwriting, tables, optical mark recognition boxes, and custom formatting—further complicates automation. Elements like watermarks, notary stamps, and logos add to the complexity.

These challenges often leave internal teams to verify exceptions in forms, creating bottlenecks and diverting employees from higher-level tasks.

This manual intervention is time-consuming and costly, reducing overall efficiency.

The DocuWare Advantage: AI-Driven Document Management

DocuWare’s intelligent Document Management System (DMS) transforms form processing by integrating digital forms that initiate automated workflows.

Here is how it works:

  • Data Assessment and Indexing: DocuWare assesses and indexes metadata in documents, reducing exceptions like unreadable or incomplete forms.
  • AI Classification and Extraction: AI classifies documents, extracts relevant data, and creates decontextualised snippets for secure data entry and validation.
  • 100% Automation: This process allows for near-complete automation, achieving accuracy rates above 99% without burdening employees with tedious data validation tasks.

Benefits of DocuWare Intelligent DMS

Implementing DocuWare in your business offers numerous advantages:

  • Enhanced Decision-Making: Access comprehensive form data, including abstracts, freeform text, and handwriting, for better and faster decisions.
  • Cost and Time Efficiency: Reduce costs and cycle times while increasing capacity with near-real-time actionable data.
  • Improved Customer Service: Efficient form processing leads to better customer service, increasing satisfaction, retention, and acquisition.
  • Increased Employee Satisfaction: DocuWare frees employees from mundane data entry tasks, boosting productivity and job satisfaction.
  • Data Privacy and Compliance: Businesses can fully comply with GDPR, SOC2, HIPAA, ISO27001, and other regulations. DocuWare ensures data privacy by providing only snippets for validation and scrambling sensitive information.

Real-World Success Stories

Numerous organisations globally have reaped the benefits of DocuWare’s intelligent DMS. Millions of forms and documents are processed daily, overcoming traditional OCR technology’s inefficiencies and automation gaps. DocuWare enables near 100% automation, delivering results in minutes rather than hours and ensuring personal information security by decontextualising sensitive data during processing.
