Johnson Smith Company Named AIIM Best Practices Award Finalist For Use Of OCR For AnyDoc
AnyDoc Software, a leading provider of automated document, data capture, and classification solutions, announced recently their client The Johnson Smith Company, one of the nation's oldest mail order catalog businesses, has been named a finalist for the 2012 AIIM Carl E. Nelson Best Practices Award.
Johnson Smith selected OCR for AnyDoc through systems integrator CPT Intelligent Technologies, Inc. to streamline the processing of thousands of mail order forms and accompanying payment checks they receive annually.
The Carl E. Nelson Best Practices Award presented by AIIM, the Association for Information and Image Management, recognizes excellence in the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) field. The term "Best Practices" denotes a standard of excellence that has been achieved within an organization and refers to a process or implementation that can be quantified, adapted, and repeated.
Paper mail orders generate forty percent of Johnson Smith's business. The company leverages OCR for AnyDoc to lift the handwritten data from the order forms and validate it against the retailer's business rules for fast and accurate order fulfillment. Using OCR for AnyDoc, the catalog giant drastically reduced processing costs, achieving a return on investment (ROI) in just 6.4 months, and will net more than $1.5M in total savings in the first 5 years.
"Johnson Smith achieved better results than we had planned, and eliminated nine manual touch points," said Ellen Pullman, IT Manager for Johnson Smith. "Most importantly, our customers reap the benefits as we are able to fulfill orders more quickly and accurately. We reduced our order turnaround time from 2.5 days down to 1 day, and quicker access to order information allows us to streamline merchandise restocking and minimize backorders."
The AIIM Best Practices Award will be presented at The San Francisco City Club during AIIM's Annual Awards Celebration on Wednesday, March 21.
Johnson Smith is the sixth AnyDoc client named a finalist for the AIIM Best Practices Award, following Sterling National Corporation in 2010 for automating the processing of incoming insurance notices.
