DocNetics Barcode

DocNetics  Barcode uses sophisticated image analysis technology during document scanning to recognize and read a number of barcode symbologies in any location or any orientation on a document. DocNetics Barcode can read a range of difficult real-world barcodes, including:

  • Plastic covered (envelope windowed)
  • Poorly Printed (faded)
  • Scratched
  • High Density
  • Skewed

Key Benefits

  • Increase scanning productivity without the need to purchase additional hardware
  • Reduce document preparation
  • Ability for downstream applications to access captured barcode information
  • Ability to capture barcode information from damaged or skewed barcodes
  • Ability to automatically retrieve archived information from tables to scan-time

DocNetics DocType

DocNetics DocType uses advanced topographical image analysis to automatically recognize structured documents in any orientation during document scanning. 

DocNetics DocType can identify difficult and multi-sized documents, including those that are:

  • Faded
  • Low contrast
  • Poorly printed
  • Skewed
  • Mixed resolutions

Key Benefits

DocNetics DocType provides a range of benefits including:

  • Reduce the need for separator sheets
  • Increase recognition rates
  • Document sorting
  • Streamlined endorsing
  • Passing metadata to downstream applications

DocNetics Logo

DocNetics Logo automatically identifies document logos during scanning.

DocNetics Logo can identify logos regardless of document orientation. The software also is versatile enough to identify difficult and multi-sized logos, including those that are:

  • Low contrast
  • High density
  • Poorly printed
  • Blurred
  • Scaled up or down
  • Faded

Key Benefits

  • Improve scanning productivity without adding hardware
  • An alternative to adding barcodes to documents
  • No need to collate documents based on company
  • Improved recognition read rates
  • Ability to catalog libraries of images based on logos or other identifiable graphics

DocNetics Recognition

DocNetics Recognition allows users to capture critical data during the scanning process. Information can be captured from specified fields or areas that match a document mask, while documents are in any orientation.

DocNetics Recognition can read:

  • OCR
  • Farrington
  • E13B
  • CMC7
  • Hand Print
  • Machine Print
  • Marks
  • Pixel Counters

Key Benefits

  • Decrease document preparation time
  • Reduce the need for separator sheets
  • Increased end-to-end system throughput
  • Ability to read, extract, validate and utilize document information during scanning
  • Faster document identification
  • Ability to apply business rules at the point of capture
  • Reduce downstream exceptions
