FileHold Systems Partners with DoubleYard to Include Handwriting Recognition

FileHold Systems announced that they have partnered with DoubleYard, Inc. to expand its product offering to include DoubleYard’s Artificial Intelligence Optical/Intelligent Character Recognition (AI-OCR/ICR) technology, offering FileHold users the ability to extract handwriting from their documents.

May 14, 2021 (FPRC) -- As a Document Management Software (DMS) Vendor, FileHold recognized the opportunity to include handwriting in its award-winning digitization services. DoubleYard’s DeepRead AI-OCR solution provided a natural fit.

DeepRead has the capability to convert handwritten characters from a variety of formats into structured digital data, achieving the industry's highest level of accuracy. DeepRead leverages Artificial Intelligence to not only recognize the shapes of the letters, but also the context of the words within sentences.

Background on the Initiative
With many companies across the globe driving intelligent automation to reduce costs, optimize operations, and enhance the customer experience, the missing element has long been reliable handwriting recognition.

The varying styles of handwriting have historically been challenging for most OCR tools.
With DoubleYard’s OCR technology, FileHold can now offer its customers the ability to extract critical handwritten data with a high confidence level. Larry Oliver, President of FileHold said 'We have been asked about handwriting recognition by many of our customers but all we could tell them, until now, is that it is not a practical, reliable technology. Through our relationship with DoubleYard we can now present a viable solution to business problems associated with handwriting recognition'

Overview of the Initiative
The combination of FileHold’s suite of document management products, integrated with DoubleYard's DeepRead solution, will enable FileHold’s customers to leverage the combined technology to achieve highly accurate digitization of handwritten text, which can then be properly indexed and archived. DeepRead can be provided on-premises, in-cloud or in hybrid environments, always maintaining a high level of security.

Through this strategic partnership, DoubleYard will continue to provide wide-ranging solutions for intelligent automation, regardless of industry, both in Japan and overseas, contributing to enhanced productivity and business efficiency. Tatsuya Yasunaga, CEO at DoubleYard commented, 'We are very excited to partner with FileHold and look forward to adding value to their currently successful product portfolio'
