Form and survey scanning methods

Scanning surveys and forms involves a little bit more work than just scanning the form in order for you to be able to gather the data into reports and statistics. This is where data capture can help. Using three different software methods, we can extract data in the form of typed text, ticks and marks and structured text.

Several data scanning and capture methods we offer to organisations in London and across the UK.

OCR form processing - Optical Character Recognition is software specially designed to capture typed text. Read more about our OCR software and the advantages.

ICR form processing - Intelligent Character Recognition is the software we use to recognise structured handwriting within your forms and surveys. Structured handwriting is usually found in a one letter per box format. It is often found in the personal details section of application forms, surveys and exam scripts.

OMR form processing - Optical Mark Recognition is used to recognise any marks made on a form such as checks and ticks.

Barcode - barcode recognition technology is able to read the pattern of parallel lines and translate the data that is s stored there into machine-readable format.

Once your data has been scanned and captured, it can be converted into a wide range of formats such as spreadsheets and databases. Popular conversions include CVS, Excel, SPSS, XML, Outlook, CRM, Salesforce and Access.

Form and survey scanning process

Prior to the scanning, our data capture specialist will work with you to ascertain the key aspects of the form, such as overal structure, layout, optimisation, types of questions, data output, collection and delivery requirements

When the details have been established, we will advise you with the most suitable data capture and scanning options, providing you with the most efficient and cost-effective solution
