OCR-Powered Automation

Automated data processing through OCR

Automated data processing through OCR has been helping companies overcome their need for costly manual data entry processes for few decades, but only recently technological advancement made it possible to achieve near 100% accuracy. From their early costly versions they have morphed into sleek low cost avatars that can be installed and become operational within a day. This data processing software has become so effective and popular that text recognition from scanned images is widespread and used by individuals and companies. Untrite automation software with OCR support is used for automated data processing. We have helped companies save money on manual data entry, brought and distributed information in companies much faster than any other process, and helped earn money by allowing invoices to be paid on time (and any due tasks which had to be automatically triggered, on that matter).

How does it work?

Perhaps the most useful case of applying OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to automation processes is it’s great fit with remote applications.
Then working on remote external screens, standard automation tools have a difficult time distinguishing things like buttons and text fields. To put it simply – the whole application window looks like one big button to the robots. However, due to our automation tech being equipped with ORC tools, a robot is able to distinguish a ‘B’ from a ‘3’, for example, even if the size or font is different.  While recording the screens, an Untrite user can run OCR, select the appropriate text within the window, and the robot will be able to locate that text every single time after.  Even if the text is in a different place, it still works; in fact, using OCR is a much more reliable way to automate and due to technological advancement – a very accurate too.

And it’s not text only. Same with images.  Again, in remote applications, everything can look the same to an RPA robot, but Untrite automation tools solve this problem with excellent image recognition software.  You simply indicate the image you want your robot to identify in the application window, like a “Create invoice” button, and no matter where it appears on the screen in later processes, the Untrite robots can find it.

You could even say, that sophisticated character and image recognition software is really at the heart of why RPA works so efficient today. Robots have become more perceptive in recent years, though we’re still years away from robots that can make complex logical decisions based on those observations.

Benefits of Robotic Process Automation

100% accurate

Perfectly extracts screen text from images, even when run remotely.

Reads content like an open book 

Whether it’s images or text, our solution is compatible with HTML, Ajax, Java, Silverlight, PDF, JPG and other mainstream formats you’d expect around content technology.

Works everywhere

You don’t need to know how to code to create automated tests – no programming knowledge is required as our tool solution is visual and very intuitive.

Digital twins, searchable in seconds

Untrite automation is powered with OCR software to allow robots easily identify characters and fields on forms. The required data is extracted and then digitised automatically, resulting in quicker and more accurate document processing. The data can then be saved electronically for access at a later point in time. Automatic data capture makes document work efficient, convenient and searchable.

This changes everything

Leveraging RPA is the obvious next big step in markets around the globe. It is already being implemented on a broad range of industries. High growth companies start eliminating outsourcing by going from offshore to onshore, optimising costs, delivering higher quality, regaining control over processes and freeing up their resources.
This translates into quick, increased value in terms of product and services for customers, but ultimately, allows for new business visions to arise in crowded marketplaces.
