Lexmark has enhanced its AccuRead Automate application for multi-functional printers (MFPs) with the new features.
AccuRead Automate enables a Lexmark smart MFP to capture, automatically classify and route documents, while extracting key information for file naming and indexing.
athan Nayagar, MD of Lexmark – South Africa & English Speaking Africa, explains: “Businesses in South Africa struggle with capturing printed information and retrieving it easily when needed.” Often manual steps are required for before and after the scanning process owing to the wide variety of document types available. Other barriers to data extraction from printed documents include insufficient employee training and limited network bandwidth in remote locations.
“This update optimises the core features of the AccuRead Automate solution, ensuring a smoother operation. It also includes significant improvements in speed and performance when classifying documents and extracting the relevant information.”
The new software now automatically recognises multi-page documents and understands that a document is for example, a two, three or four-page invoice. This only requires an initial input of the different variants which eliminates manual pre-sorting and further increases efficiency. Additional enhancements include expanded automation functions that provide even faster and more precise capture and processing of documents and greatly accelerate downstream processes.
The new version also provides more precise classification methods with sorting now performed on the full text, not just the layout of a document. This enables the recognition and classification of documents that do not fully match one of the “learned” categories. As a result, AccuRead Automate 2.0 ensures a significantly lower error rate than previous versions.
The new AccuRead Automate solution is available for the new Lexmark CX7 and CX8 Series of colour printer products. For older Lexmark products with different firmware, future versions will be offered that provide the same enhancements.
