In every company, many documents come in and out every day. Some of them are still paper-based in many companies, while the other part reaches companies via the digital, electronic path, such as by e-mail or even online forms. All these documents can and must be processed digitally. Many companies already use a document management system (DMS) for this purpose. But how exactly do the documents get into the DMS and, ideally, to the right place?
This is where document classification comes in!
Document classification means that OCR technology is used to read information from documents and classify them into categories.
The term “classification” (from Latin classic, “class”, and facere, “to make”) describes the grouping of objects into classes (groups, sets, categories), which together means classification.
With the help of a software for document processing and classification documents can be read in and classified. The prerequisite, of course, is that the documents are in digital form, which means that documents that are in paper form must first be scanned.
The scanned documents can now be classified by subject or by their content, e.g. by the type of document – is it an invoice, a delivery bill, an order confirmation or a purchase order? The software is able to recognize and classify this based on keywords, structure and layout.
