DCL/Solution for Digitizing High Volumes of Paper & Scanned Documents

Big Data Management, Hosted Solutions, Automated Processing

DCL's Automated Conversion System (DCL-ACS) system is a fully automated solution for digitizing high volumes of paper and scanned documents and converting them into structured data. Hosted at DCL in a secure environment, DCL-ACS provides high-quality, continuous, 24/7 transformation of hundreds of thousands of pages per day without human intervention. 

The Automated Conversion System was created to address a growing cross-industry need to search large document collections and extract metadata and other critical information. Big data has exacerbated the challenge as many organizations need to comb though large numbers of document images, which are intrinsically difficult to index and re-use. DCL’s technology transforms documents of varying visual quality and imagery into searchable XML, with extracted metadata, which can be stored and accessed via content-management and other end-user systems. 

DCL-ACS is particularly valuable for organizations with mission-critical documents where accuracy and confidentiality are imperative, such as:

  • Government Agencies
  • Archival Facilities
  • Universities
  • Medical Institutions
  • Legal Firms
  • Financial Groups
  • Real Estate Management Groups

Designed by the technology experts at DCL and configurable to meet a client’s unique business requirements, the system includes an integrated communication layer, extensive load balancing capabilities, a robust workflow engine, and a unique multi-step processing approach to render previously inaccessible data useable, at a large scale, via an exceptionally accurate, efficient process.

While modern OCR (optical character recognition) tools do a great job on clean content, they get fooled by the non-textual content of complex documents, and accuracy degrades. DCL’s new process overcomes this degradation with methods that automatically extract the extraneous content, reinserting it later into the converted document. Customizable to fit the specific requirements of each client, this system is revolutionary in its ability to manage the conversion of millions of pages in a 100% lights-out environment with surprisingly high accuracy at a fraction of the usual cost. 

DCL-ACS is ideal for organizations managing large numbers of documents, including:

  • Applications
  • Forms
  • Records
  • Filings
  • Proceedings

Thoroughly tested and now in operation, DCL-ACS incorporates decades of conversion expertise and innovative technology to deliver high-quality converted documents and metadata.
