Frequently Asked Questions

How much does this business software cost?

First, the software is designed for business, not home users. We are not allowed to post the pricing for the product online but will send it to you right away once you register for a free demo. You an also download the pricing simply by registering here. Keep in mind that the software is priced to reflect the labor savings you will incur, but is much more than an off the shelf OCR product like ABBYY FineReader Corporate (which runs about $400). 

You mentioned above that the software does not do well converting free form text. I have pages of handwritten notes that I want to turn into word processing documents. Will the software do that for me? 

No software can do this with the exception of a very high-end product which is outside the price range of most businesses. 

Do I need to be a programmer to set up the software, and how much configuration is required?

You do not need to be a programmer unless you wish to create custom scripts for things that are not out of the box functions. The amount of configuration for each form  depends upon how many fields you wish to extract. We will show you how to do it during your demo. You can purchase training for your company so that you can create the extraction rules yourself. Another very important factor is whether your form is a fixed format type or a semi-structured one. We will explain the difference to you in the demo.

I am just researching this software and really just want to learn more at this point and not see a demo. What are my options:

We provide a huge variety of resources on our web page including technical articles and how to videos.  If you fill out the demo request form above you can just tell us where you are in your discovery phase and we will respect that and guide you during your journey.  Or you can visit our web page:
