OCR and Barcode

OCR Zones

OCR zones are configured on templates which are applied to selected documents. FileDirector will then read the content of the zones and fill in the relevant index fields with the information it has read.


Zones can be configured to read barcodes FileDirector allows you to use the most popular 1D and 2D barcode types including QR codes. The information contained in the barcode can then be applied in the same manner as an OCR zone, filling one or several index fields.

Form Recognition

The zones can also be used to identify specific types of documents. It can be either text or a logo as long as it is unique to the document. The system will then recognize the form, read the zones and then fill in the index fields linked to them.

Automatic hands free Indexing

Full Text Recognition

With full text recognition the whole document is processed by the OCR engine. This then allows the user to search for all documents containing a particular word or phrase, the results being displayed with the highest relevance first and the “hits” highlighted in the document viewing window.

BAS-SOL is a boutique accounting practice located in Claremont Western Australia. We have been using FileDirector for over 5 years and last year upgraded to the OCR function. The ability to scan all of our clients paperwork and search for information with either a word search, ABN or Tax File Number has proved invaluable in time saving , efficiency and definitely space saving. No more archive boxes stored off site. The system is easy to use both for scanning and retrieval of information which can be accessed on all of our staff’s desktops. We would not chose to operate without FileDirector
