Intelligently making the physical, digital

Digitising handwritten and printed information helps to make text indexable and searchable.

Scanning your documents can make them digitally available in seconds, but digitisation technology can take this one step further.

This allows you to properly archive and share even handwritten notes.

What can document digitisation do for your data?

  1. Efficient – Retrieving digital files saves time and is less prone to human error. Digital documents can be easily accessed, from anywhere, allowing employees to do more important things than managing tedious physical archives.
  2. Flexibility – Companies can discover opportunities from evaluated insights using digital data, allowing them to stay ahead of the competition.
  3. Security – Scanning documents create a safe repository of data, preventing important information from the risks of loss, theft and environmental degradation.
  4. Preservation – More convenient than making a copy, an electronic record creates a master variant, from which any number of further copies can be produced, both in electronic and printed form.
  5. Communication – Digitised information is easier to share, formatted in standard file types for immediate transfer to both clients and employees.
  6. Searchable – Improvements in the accuracy of software to recognise text, handwriting and form fields have revolutionised records management. Making it possible to dig ever deeper into previously inaccessible information.

  4. Data Extraction – Retrieve relevant pieces of information from the output.
  5. Interpretation – The digital information will be categorised and indexed effectively.
  6. Exception Handling – Detect errors and validate uncommon scenarios and provide alternative methods for proper handling.

Collection, Capture and Conversion

Flexibility is crucial in the digital environment.

We build the process around your company’s needs to ensure the best workflow and maximum compliance.

Images are produced in a wide range of formats to suit your needs and are delivered using a multitude of options, from removable storage units to SFTP, or they can even be hosted on the web.

Digital character recognition (OCR and ICR) allows for fast processing.

We are able to use machine learning to identify document types and to recognise images in order to efficiently direct the data to the right parts of the system and to key individuals, for further processing.


The Next Steps

Document scanning is one of the initial stages of an organizations journey to digitised information management. The journey begins with the scanning, capture, and importing of a company’s content, such as invoices, job applications, and contracts into a secure digital repository.

Crown’s enterprise content management capabilities enable companies to digitally store any business-critical document. This enables users to view or make edits (based on access rights), check how data has been categorised (metadata) and organise documents within folders.

Once an organisation’s records have been securely stored, users can quickly find any documents based on full text search, specific words, dates, and users. The next stage on the journey is to automate and speed up certain tasks along a workflow by digitising some key business processes. For example, recruiting and onboarding new employees, or the accounts payable process.

Our enterprise content management capabilities enable greater compliance by restricting access to folders, monitoring system logins and outs, as well as keeping full audit trails on document creation.
