What is OCR
OCR is a technology that allows, through the use of automatic recognition software, to read and convert the written characters present in an image into a digital text. In this way, it is possible to dematerialize any type of document and easily forward its content, sending in a simple and immediate way the information necessary for the activation of the new contract.
How it works
The OCR technology allows you to extract the alphanumeric characters present in a PDF, in a scanned document or in a photograph taken with a simple smartphone. The software is able to identify all the key information to complete the necessary steps: the extracted characters are converted into editable text and generally saved in a text file, or automatically inserted into some fields of a web page, such as example name, surname, date of birth, POD/PDR code, social security number and address.
