Our New Approach to Document Capture

Innovation in enterprise document capture stopped decades ago…

Meamwhile, demand for getting information from documents is more important today than ever.

With new analytics and intelligence tools, information on paper is a literal gold mine. Vast quantities of historical documents need to be scanned and data extracted.

However, using traditional scanning software to digitize records holds back progress and limits the effectiveness of scanning hardware.

Want to know the secret to super fast scanning and extracting accurate data out of documents?

It’s simple: stop configuring scanner hardware profiles. Instead, trade sub-par scanning software for an intelligent data capture platform.

Let's Get Started!

Eliminate Dependency on Manual Scanning Profiles

With just a single scanner hardware profile, Grooper provides full control of document images. Our patented image processing and computer vision provide all the tools needed to adjust a page’s:

  • Thresholding
  • Brightness
  • Contrast
  • Color mode
  • Correct skew
  • Much more

Custom-tailored processing profiles are applied real-time to handle more complicated cleanup tasks.

And at no point will you need to re-scan a document using different scanner settings in an attempt to get a better image.

Save time scanning documents – choose Grooper for intelligent document processing.

What is Grooper?

What Hardware Does Grooper Use?

You can connect to more than 400 document scanners using ISIS or TWAIN drivers. Centrally manage image cleanup settings to bring consistency and quality to your end-product.

You can even apply scan processing features based on scanner model.

Document Capture Equipment

Grooper intelligent document capture software integrates with standalone devices like IBML’s imageTrac and the ColorTrac SmartLF wide format scanners.

Scan at Warp Speed

Because of Grooper’s native integration with scanning hardware, scan operators can run equipment at top speeds.

How? Moving capture and image pre-processing work to Grooper frees up limited scanner resources to enable top hardware performance.

How to Capture Microfiche in a Flash

Microfiche has been a standard format for archiving because it makes indexing documents easier. Court records are one example of documents stored on microfiche, and many government agencies have saved vast numbers of documents on fiche.

To scan microfiche quickly and save time, Grooper sorts document image “tiles” and organizes them into subfolders.

So, if there are 7 strips with 22 tile images in each strip, users see 7 folders, each containing 22 images. The image tiles are then stitched into a low resolution preview of the entire fiche card. This provides a visual reference for quick review.

This is how one Federal Agency was able to scan, extract, and integrate critical metadata on over 20 million pages of microfiche in 9 just months.

Review Images Faster and Easier

If you are capturing information from paper documents or microform, ensuring image quality is critical.

The Grooper Image Review interface groups images together by height, width, intensity, and aspect ratio:

Document Image Review

This naturally brings images with similar defects together in order to quickly correct issues without having to look at every single image.

ScanOnce™ is a Grooper feature that allows users to restore the original unmodified image at any point in a processing workflow. This eliminates any need to perform costly re-scans.

Results You Can Count on with Grooper Document Capture:

  • Delete blank pages
  • Lighten dark images
  • Straighten skewed documents
  • Rotate images for correct orientation
  • Remove black border with re-cropping
  • Make text legible again
  • Maximize scanning hardware performance
  • Decrease scanning time and expensive re-scans
  • Fast and efficient scanned image review
