TeleForm is the only comprehensive solution to combine world-class capture with intelligent form and document processing, successfully integrating people, paper and processes.

TeleForm offers a compelling ROI that has been proven repeatedly. With just the intelligent data extraction capability, customers see a 60%+ reduction in costs associated with manual data entry.

Intelligent Form and Document Capture
In order to automate your paper-based processes you need support for the tools that your users already know and use on a day-to-day basis.

That’s why Cardiff TeleForm delivers a complete range of capabilities for capturing paper forms and documents from distributed knowledge workers or external customers and partners, via methods they are familiar with today – fax, email, internet, postage, scanners and others.

Intelligent Form and Document Classification
Forms and documents come in all different formats, shapes and sizes and many of them are generated outside of your enterprise and outside of your control.  Before you process them, they must be sorted.

Rather than using separator sheets or presorting documents by hand, a time consuming and costly endeavor, Cardiff TeleForm intelligently identifies form and document types of different structures and formats and based on their content it automatically sorts scanned documents into “virtual piles” for further processing without any human intervention.

Intelligent Data Extraction
Manually keying data from forms and documents into your business systems is time consuming, costly and error prone.  The potential for compliance or privacy violations due to operator error is high.

Cardiff customers typically see a 60%-80% reduction in the costs associated with manually typing data from paper forms and documents as TeleForm automatically reads hand print, machine print, optical mark, barcodes and signatures.  TeleForm reads and extracts information automatically from any document type including semi-structured and unstructured documents such as loans, contracts, invoices and more.

Intelligent Data Validation
Often the data contained in forms and documents is inherently inaccurate or difficult to read, a problem which grows exponentially as that data travels through your business processes.

With TeleForm, automated business-rules processing functions can be easily defined via point-and-click setup interfaces to ensure the data entering your business systems is 100% complete and accurate. Exceptions are intelligently routed to the right human operators to review and correct.
