What is Advanced Data Extraction (ADE)?

OCR and Data Extraction

A big part of any OCR solution is the process of data capture and extraction.  Most document capture applications provide the ability to process the converted text and provide the extraction of expressions from the text.  So how can this  help?  Well, the ability to parse the OCR text provides automation, and allows you to populate fields based on what you find.

An example might be a form that has DOB: 1/2/1968

You want to extract everything to the right of DOB: from a document.  You can do this with an ADE engine.
