Use your Canon device for filing, not just printing.

Don't waste time filing, your Canon device can do it for you.

Zonal optical character recognition, also referred to as Template OCR, is a technique to extract text from scanned documents at specific locations and make the documents searchable. 

Canon multifunction devices and scanners are equipped with optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities that allow you to convert your scanned documents into searchable and editable PDF files. Having access to the full text of the document is only the first step.

The use of zonal or template OCR takes it a step further

Instead of simply converting your scanned images into text, software systems can be trained to recognize the structure and hierarchy of your documents. In zone-based OCR systems, it is possible to train them to distinguish between different data fields by defining "zones". This makes automating data extraction from PDFs possible in a few clicks.


Automating data extraction has a lot of advantages

  • Improved accuracy
  • Optimise your team's time with improved efficiency
  • Smart filing based on type and text
  • Access information from anywhere on any device with cloud storage and directory paths
  • Better governance and compliance
