Why Grooper is Different
Built in the era of big data and analytics, Grooper is an all-in-one platform. Users don’t have to navigate separate modules or add-ons to get results.
While other data capture and integration solutions have grown by acquiring and assimilating many different products together, Grooper provides seamless access to all tools and features. Intelligent technology such as machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and image processing is part of Grooper’s DNA.
OCR accuracy is dependent on the quality of image processing. Grooper offers over 20 unique image processing commands that can be applied at any time, and multiple times – not just when documents are first added. Grooper image processing achieves three critical goals:
No Zonal OCR or Templates
Once considered “advanced capture,” zonal OCR and template-based data extraction are a thing of the past. Grooper’s layered artificial intelligence gives users a new way of interacting with data.
This is one of the reasons Grooper was developed. Organizations processing large quantities of different (or variable) documents needed a more robust and scalable solution.
Grooper achieves near-perfect OCR through advanced and patented technology. Grooper is not an OCR engine. In fact, multiple OCR engines are used simultaneously to achieve the best possible results.
Grooper offers trainable OCR, spell correction, iterative & layered OCR, and more.
Fuzzy Data Handling
This is an intelligence unique to Grooper. It enables true machine reading – by understanding the meaning of data more organically. It works on both business data and common dictionary words.
Now, instead of relying on exact matches for expected data (both searching document field labels and field data), you can “fuzzy match” results with weighted accuracy. If you are familiar with Regular Expressions, this is like RegEx on steroids.
Grooper offers fuzzy RegEx, fuzzy list extraction, fuzzy page detection, and fuzzy matching for lexicons created from external database tables.
Grooper connects to any CMIS-compliant document repository, and to many proprietary file systems. Integrate external data sources as needed during processing for validation. Grooper is enterprise-ready without forcing you to pay for the vital data connections you need.
Export data in the format of your choice – XML, JSON, CSV, PDF, etc. Read more here.
Manual data entry is expensive, error-prone, and slow.
Since nobody wants to waste resources or miss out on better outcomes, you should act now to protect your organization. Grooper automates challenging data extraction.

Grooper Frequently Asked Questions
Why was Grooper Created?
Frustrations in existing document capture software lead to the development of Grooper. We’re a 30+ year veteran in enterprise capture.
Because our customers needed results that legacy platforms struggled to deliver, we decided to stop building custom-coded add-ons and instead created something entirely new.
We also decided the world needed an intelligent document capture vendor that was more responsible, agile, loyal, and easier to work with.
Is Grooper just OCR?
Grooper is not an OCR engine. While users can use multiple OCR products within the platform, the benefit is that Grooper makes OCR perform the way it was promised.
Users mostly use Transym, Tesseract, and ABBYY (there are many to choose from). Grooper adds in image processing, lexicons, trainable OCR, and other patented techniques to achieve very high accuracy on any kind of document.
Is Grooper a mature solution?
Yes, Grooper is a fully matured solution.
Are we done adding to it? No. Grooper is in active development as features and functionality are added to meet customer and industry demand.
How complicated is the pricing?
Because Grooper is a unified platform, pricing is simply based on volume of use.
Pricing for basic data integration is straightforward. Pricing for more complex integration is based on a POC to reveal core requirements and potential partner / professional services needs.
What industry was Grooper built for?
Grooper was designed to extract data from physical media and electronic data sources for any industry. Because Grooper is a configurable platform, it is used in healthcare, oil and gas, education, financial services, and government.

Grooper Data Integration Testimonials
“Practically every unit here within our agency uses Grooper on some level. Grooper has cut down on our indexing time by 70 percent.”Ryan Freeman-Smith, Manager, Oklahoma Health Care Authority
“Grooper will give us the access to more contract data than ever before by quickly extracting the data across thousands of lengthy contracts, allowing employees to spend time on value-adding data analysis rather than extraction.”Glena Brauer, Supervisor – Marketing Contracts and Compliance, Chesapeake Energy
“Grooper has saved OSU hundreds of thousands of dollars and the ROI was seen in less than six months after going live. This product has taken data processing, document scanning, and import automation to a whole new level. It’s now in virtually every department including our president’s office.”Erin Girton, Database Administrator/Content Management & Capture Administrator, Oklahoma State University
“Grooper allows my staff to process ten times more volume than we could with our previous image capture solution; our office thinks Grooper is worth its weight in gold.”Marie Ramsey-Hirst, Court Clerk, Canadian County
“All of the information in some file some place is very hard to retrieve. We ought to be able to get it with the click of a button, and now we can. Using the system that Grooper provides to scan the documents and mine the data eliminates many manual processes. My belief is that in the long-term it doesn’t really cost us anything because it’s going to pay us dividends over and over again. I would be surprised if anybody has a system that’s any better than this.”Gary Ridley, former Oklahoma Secretary of Transportation, former Director of Oklahoma Dept of Transportation and former Director of Oklahoma Transportation Authority
