Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

May 31, 2020

For lawyers and other legal professionals, fast access to caseload information is priority #1.

But some information is hard to search for. What about data inside scanned documents, or the details inside a PDF file?

Filevine can handle that. When Docs+ Optical Character Recognition (Docs+ OCR) is enabled on your Filevine Account, every document in your system will be indexed for search. If a file contains any of the terms you search for, it will appear in your search results.

With Docs+ OCR, you can find exactly what you need, exactly when you need it—and it doesn’t get faster than that.
