Imaging and Scanning
Features and Benefits


It goes without discussion that by automating your document management processes you will improve your profits.

Improved accuracy

Reduce and eliminate errors and improve the quality of your data searches through rule-based extraction, classification and verification. Save, Search, See and Send instantly.

Auto-Index and Classification

We use the most sophisticated tools available to capture, classify, index and extract information from raw data and paper documents.

Data Upload

Document Master systems pull from sources such as basic desktop scanners to very high-end scanning devices, Multi-Function Peripherals (MFPs), file system folders and email servers. We accurately capture and digitise documents, forms, and faxes.

Intelligent Recognition

A modern system like ours applies document recognition functionality first to classify the document type (to determine what document it is), then extracts data from the digital image using Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR), and Intelligent Document Recognition (IDR).


In some document types,  manual verification is needed. We have the capacity to verify, index and file digitised documents where you can easily find them. For example, hand written documents need to be manually verified.

Improve compliance

Our business is about compliance and security, access and retrieval. You never have to worry about being compliant. Compliance includes, SARS, The Company Act, SABS, auditing and the ECT Act. We do this for you.

Take advantage of advanced technology

Our focus is on using the most advanced software systems in the market to extract information using a range of data extraction methods: barcode, optical mark recognition, forms reading, free forms recognition, database-driven recognition, patch code and Adaptive Reading Technology. The costs of this technology for one company can be excessively expansive…but with us modern software costs are shared amongst thousands of users, making it cheap for you.


Use your existing multifunctional printers, high-end scanning devices, file system folders, email servers, forms and faxes.


Document Master enables the user to Save, Search for, Retrieve, View, Send and re-send secure encrypted copies of the original documents via a web based interface.
