Data capture from scanned images, PDF documents, Word, Excel and other Office documents. Applications that support any size project from desktop OCR to enterprise forms processing. Data capture to CSV, Excel, SQL Databases, XML, JSON and any other format. Universal application integration with Robotic Processing Automation (RPA).
With the development of Cloud Computing, more and more OCR solutions started to move processing to the cloud. There are several major Cloud OCR solutions like AWS Textract (from Amazon), Azure AI Vision (from Microsoft), Google Cloud Vision AI, as well as more specialized solutions like ABBYY Vantage.
These days it is much harder to find an OCR data capture solution that is not fully or partly cloud-based.

Before the “Cloud” became popular, it was known as simply as “Software.” After the development of Cloud Computing, it has been referred to as On-Prem, On-Premise, On-Site, Offline, Local, Native, Self-Hosted, In-House and other terms, but none of them highlight the benefits it has over the Cloud like Sunshine Software.

Understanding the differences between these models is essential for making informed decisions aligned with business goals and requirements.
Cloud-Based OCR Software:
Cloud OCR software operates on remote servers accessible over the internet. This model offers unparalleled scalability, allowing businesses to […]
