TAMPA, Fla. – January 28, 2000 – Microsystems Technology's automated forms processing software, OCR for Forms™, was named "Product of the Year" for 1999 by Imaging & Document Solutions magazine. OCR for Forms was also named Product of the Year in 1992 and 1998 and won Editor's Choice Award in 1992, 1998 and 1999. OCR for Forms reads machine-printed, hand-printed, bar-coded and check-box (mark sense) information from scanned and faxed images of forms. The software allows verification operators to validate only the questionable characters, which is much more efficient than keying in 100 percent of the data. With the software's most recent innovation, remote verification over the Internet, questionable characters can be checked and edited from any location, providing greater flexibility for staffing. "It's a great honor to be recognized within the imaging industry for helping other businesses solve everyday problems," said Charles W. Jackson, president of Microsystems Technology.
Microsystems Technology, founded in 1989 by five-time "Inc. 500" CEO Charles Jackson, is a pioneer in automating the process to extract data from forms, whether machine print, handprint, one- or two-dimensional bar codes or check boxes. Inc. magazine ranked Microsystems Technology among its Inc. 500 in 1997 and 1998. The company currently has tens of thousands of licensed OCR for Forms installations on six continents.
