How Our Data Capture System Works

Didlake Imaging has the capability to index a wide range of images, documents and files. We offer customizable data indexing and capturing services that fit the specific needs of your organization. We can extract essential information such as keywords, document numbers, titles, invoice numbers or any other field that is a pain point for operations.

Step #1: Paper to Digital Conversion

Our data capture system extracts important information through document imaging. We convert paper documents into digital images in various file formats and process them at our secure facility. Once documents are scanned, they can be further processed and stored in an archived digital database.

Step #2: Structuring Unstructured Data During Document Scanning

When we start to process your scanned documents, we capture pertinent metadata. Our data structure helps you improve the speed of your data retrieval process by turning unstructured data into structured data.

We enter and digitize data from unstructured forms, invoices, receipts and other records. Digital files are made searchable through OCR and ICR. Quick location of data keeps your employees from wasting time searching complete databases for one simple file.

I've worked with Didlake twice and would happily work with them again. The entire Didlake team makes the process as smooth and easy as possible. I've shut down 2 offices over the last few years and Didlake was fantastic in picking up my files, scanning and disposing of them, and getting me a flashdrive of my documents. The files were labelled and orderly. I really couldn't ask for more and will use them again should ...

I am a strong believer in supporting local businesses, and you couldn't find a better one than this to support. I ...

I have had a couple of occasions to find myself looking at digitized files and have found it straightforward to access the data. While I don't foresee any large scale digitization needs ...
