OCR is pure digitization ...

OCR solutions such as Abbyy Fine Reader, Google OCR or Readiris can help digitize jobs. However, when it comes to automating the entire order entry process, they quickly reach their limits.

Lack of flexibility

OCR tools need rules and templates. If documents deviate from the defined layout, this leads to problems. Also, new languages are not immediately understood.

Illustration highlighting the lack of flexibility of OCR tools when dealing with different document layouts. The left side shows a "Correct layout" with a checkmark, where various elements of a document, such as text boxes and tables, are neatly outlined and organized. The right side shows an "Incorrect layout" with an X mark, where the document elements are misaligned and poorly structured. This image emphasizes the challenges OCR tools face with non-standard document layouts.

Lack of context recognition

OCR software extracts text from documents or images without understanding the context. It remains unclear whether a sequence of numbers is an article number or the postal code of the delivery address.

Illustration depicting the lack of context recognition in document processing. The document has various sections outlined in red dashed boxes, each with a question mark beside them, indicating areas where the system fails to understand the context. This image highlights the challenges faced by OCR and similar tools in accurately interpreting and processing documents without clear context recognition.

OCR has error issues

Optical Character Recognition is prone to errors. Many OCR programs have problems reading bad scans, handwriting or unclear documents.

A magnifying glass is placed over a section with scribbled handwriting, emphasizing the difficulty OCR tools face when dealing with poor scans or handwritten text. This image underscores the challenges and errors associated with OCR technology in accurately processing documents with suboptimal quality or handwritten content.

... without automation

OCR technology converts text in images or documents into a machine-readable format. However, pure OCR solutions are not enough for true process automation.
Illustration showing the limited automation capability of OCR. A red circle labeled "OCR" has an arrow pointing to a black circle with a human icon, indicating that OCR data still needs human interpretation. Another arrow points from the human icon to a green circle labeled "ERP," representing the transfer of interpreted data into an ERP system. This image emphasizes that, despite OCR technology, human intervention is required to process and transfer data accurately.

Limited automation

The data read out must still be interpreted by humans and transferred by copy-and-paste.

Illustration comparing time savings between manual processing and OCR. On the left, a stopwatch labeled "Manual" shows a time of 5 minutes and 30 seconds. On the right, a stopwatch labeled "OCR" shows a time of 4 minutes and 45 seconds, indicating a limited time saving. This image emphasizes that the use of OCR provides only a marginal reduction in processing time compared to manual methods.

Little time saving

Since manual post-processing is still necessary, OCR tools only save a small amount of time compared to completely hand-typing.

Illustration showing a graph depicting the high training effort and costs associated with OCR tools. The graph starts with an OCR label at the baseline and rises steeply, marked with icons representing time and money, indicating increasing effort and costs. The upward curve emphasizes the significant investment required for training OCR tools. This image highlights the context of high training effort and costs associated with implementing OCR technology.

High training effort

A lot of initial training is required to read orders from different customers in different layouts using pure OCR solutions.
