What's New in Datacap: Summer 2021

Key Update: Improved OCR recognition in Datacap

Datacap has significantly improved its OCR capabilities, with a focus on documents that can be challenging to process. For example, driver's licenses and other ID cards vary heavily from location to location and often have background images and other details that make them difficult to recognize. The same challenge occurs with documents that have low contrast, small fonts, or poor resolution. In light of the importance of processing all documents quickly, easily, and accurately, Datacap is giving its customers the flexibility to process any documents for any business process.

See sample results from an actual image used in an OCR test below:

This new capability installs on top of Datacap 9.1.8 and is available for free to all Datacap customers.

This is great! How can I get this?

Login to Passport Advantage and search for, "IBM Datacap OCRPL Recognition V9.1.8." or part number G01JDML.

Installation instructions are here.
