Papyrus Recognition Server is a powerful tool for automated high volume business content digitizing what is key for tight SLAs (service level agreements) in the modern business world.

The Recognition Server offers a broad range of possibilities for application in the field of automated sorting and distribution of electronic documents, fax and paper mail. For data extraction, the Recognition Server can identify unstructured and structured documents with great reliability. Various types of content: whether machine or hand written text, check boxes or diverse bar codes, QR codes, DataMatrixes - can be recognized and identified as business related content by means of powerful document analysis using pattern recognition, keywords, relative positions, voting algorithms, layout analysis and rules.

Papyrus Recognition Server applies classification and extraction definitions created with the Papyrus Designer Capture or Papyrus Business Designer /Capture to acquire the required business content from the inbound business mails.
