Parascript promises easier forms processing

Parascript has launched a new software toolkit that automatically recognises document types by look and content (whether static or variable in position) and can locate key data in machine print, hand print and/or cursive to help organisations easily extract important information.

FormXtra SDK 5.0 also offers a new .NET based API that offers greater customisation.

³We are excited about this major announcement and FormXtra SDK¹s even more powerful offering. No other document processing platform provides more in one single engine, from automatically identifying form type to locating and recognizing data and enabling even tighter integration capabilities with other technologies.

"FormXtra SDK 5.0 gives integrators and their customers the power to automatically process more forms, more efficiently than before," said Alexander Filatov, president and chief technology officer for Parascript.

FormXtra SDK 5.0 uses advanced location techniques to identify data for recognition and extraction on any page within a batch. It can process images that do not perfectly match a pre-defined template, such as scaled-down faxes.

It introduces new capabilities allowing for recognition of tables that may not be discretely defined, such as on transactional data found on invoices and purchase orders. FormXtra SDK 5.0 can also help locate sensitive content that needs to be redacted in order to support compliance.

FormXtra¹s new, more universal .NET API offers a greater degree of control and functionality for integration. Combined with multiple CPU and 64-bit computing support, developers can create complex, high-volume workflows with rich document processing rules that are tightly integrated with their technologies.
