Document Capture Software
Selecting the most effective document capture software will make other solutions such as workflow automation software and document management more efficient – otherwise it's garbage in, garbage out.
Commonly referred to as document scanning software, simple document capture software is what runs document scanners. It's where you select the settings for how you want to capture document images from paper (e.g. black and white vs. color, output type like PDF or TIFF, dpi level) and how the resulting document images will be named (indexing) so you can find them later.
Some applications also include:
- Capture from fax and other electronic document sources
- Include barcode recognition, which is useful for streamlining the indexing process
- Offer image enhancement like auto-cropping, deskew, auto-brightness/contrast, black border removal, black hole punch removal, etc.

Advanced Capture Software
Advanced capture software takes scanning to a whole new level by allowing you to automatically extract data with optical character recognition (OCR) for machine print and intelligent character recognition (ICR) for handwriting on a zonal or full-text basis – especially useful on forms, which is also referred to as forms processing software.
Some advanced capture software applications also include intelligent document recognition, which first identifies (and learns) documents by type, then automatically extract and route those documents for processing based on their type.
Document capture typically starts in one department, often accounts payable or HR. As the benefits are realized, document capture is often rolled into other departments, including purchasing, accounts receivable, customer service, finance, sales, legal, operations, engineering, and maintenance.
