The Importance of Scalable Document Capture Software

The Importance of Scalable Document Capture Software For many businesses, especially large organisations that process high volumes of data daily, using data extraction software that is efficient and scalable is essential. Many of Xtracta’s clients process an excess of 200,000 documents through our platform each month. If you whittle that down to the number of documents captured per working day, with 21 working days per month—that’s roughly 10,000 documents per day. For businesses that process documents at high volumes like this, it’s vital that the software can scale to meet processing demand. Here, we discuss the importance of this concept…
