Optical Character Recognition

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a technology that can analyse text and convert it into a format that can be processed by a machine.

OCR is a crucial part of contract management software.

Gatekeeper's OCR engine also allows businesses to: 

  • Unlock the value of contract data 
  • Search their contract repository
  • Automatically link documents to their key contract records
  • Search for contracts across all data-points
  • See search results by contract, vendor or file name
  • Search for specific contract clauses and language
  • Search data and language across digital and handwritten formats.
