Specific challenges included:

  • - Boxes containing several form types.
  • - Identification and sorting multiple categories of forms for different processing rules.
  • - Development of a reliable and professional tracking and logging system.
  • - The set-up of multiple job types to meet specific user requirements.
  • - The need to achieve 100% accuracy to correctly index every form.
