Automated Fax Software

Software applications exists now to where forms that are faxed in can be transformed into computer-readable data. Automated fax software is a subset of OCR and ICR technology. Forms are generally created by the user using the manufacturer's software application and distributed to the customer. When the form is faxed in, it is recognized by the fax software and is typically exported directly into a specified data base. Optical Mark Recognition (fill in bubbles), Optical Character Recognition, handprint recognition, and image capture are usually supported in automated fax software applications. In general, forms with no handprinting will recognize close to 100 percent of the time which is the typically configuration for most user's information gathering needs anyway. If handprinting is required, the lower recognition rate isn't likely to encumber the substantial savings in time and labor in any event.
