AccuRead OCR

The AccuRead OCR application creates a searchable PDF or an editable file when scanning printed documents at the multifunction printer (MFP).

Today, businesses of all sizes struggle to create searchable data and editable content from unstructured source materials, like invoices, contracts and job applications. Many resort to inefficient and error-prone manual solutions, like rekeying, in order to get this information into their systems.

To put the problem into perspective, the average knowledgeable worker spends nearly nine hours a week searching for information and six hours creating content, costing a business an average of $23,897 a year1.

Businesses are looking for a way to reduce the amount of time spent searching for information and creating documents, and with the Lexmark AccuRead OCR solution, customers can quickly and easily access digitized information.

“The AccuRead OCR application creates a searchable PDF or an editable file when scanning printed documents at the MFP,” said Rick Robinson, worldwide product manager for Lexmark. “The application is available on Lexmark solution-enabled MFPs, and allows the device to easily and quickly generate full text searchable documents.”

The application is modular, allowing it to work with other applications such as email and scan to network, can be easily installed and is available through Lexmark authorized solutions dealers.

“AccuRead OCR is a serverless application developed internally by Lexmark and requires no desktop or server-based solution, which is very important for our small and medium business customers,” said Doug Frazier, manager of Solutions Engagement, North America Channel Business Development.

“This application brings a much needed capability that will deliver a high value to our partners’ customers,” said Frazier. “We listened to our customers who were in need of an OCR solution that could easily scale from desktop MFPs, all the way to departmental devices, without the need for servers or desktop software installation. Lexmark has delivered that solution with AccuRead OCR.”
