We use the most accurate OCR software available, PrimeOCR, to perform OCR on your documents. PrimeOCR is Voting OCR software that reduces the amount of OCR errors by 65-82% on average vs. the best conventional OCR engines.

Images can be TIFF, PDF (single or multi-page), JPEG, BMP, fax among many other formats. Resolutions accepted include 200, 240, 300, 400, 600 DPI as well as standard FAX.
