Too Long; Didn't Read

Data entry can often turn tedious and inaccurate if done manually. You can avoid this cumbersome process with an automated optical character recognition software. What OCR does is, it uses machine learning to scan each character on a page individually. It allows the documents to be uploaded as text documents instead of images. Any kind of printed document, be it receipts, invoices, contracts, utility bills and much more can be scanned easily and promptly with this solution.
