How does Captur enhance Foldr?

Zonal OCR
  • User-friendly template designer using simple drag-and-drop operations.
  • Zones can be free-text search, regular expression or positional (box) based.
  • Full regular expression engine support with built-in examples, such as postcode and telephone number.
  • Box zones can be "tethered" to text zones allowing for movement of the document itself (e.g. on a scan bed or mobile camera) or of data around the document (e.g. the total value of invoices with different numbers of items).
  • Unique scaling system - tethered box zones are sized based upon their parent text zones allowing for scans of different sizes e.g. scan from mobile scanners.
  • Simple drag-and-drop for table column mapping.
  • Table row-detection algorithm. Captur will attempt to detect and capture table rows based on the content of user-defined columns.
  • Advanced zonal repeat and loop settings. Configure whether zones should repeat on-page or in-document and with what frequency.
  • Replace or modify captured values using free text or regular expressions.
  • Document classification - specify which zones are required - enabling powerful document classification with multiple templates.
Custom Fields (available without Captur)
  • Custom fields are configured globally and then applied quickly and easily to a share or storage location.
  • Granular permissions - specify which users and groups can write or edit field values on a per-share basis.
  • Allowed values - create dropdown lists to populate fields with pre-defined and valid values.
  • Support for string, text, numerical, boolean (true/false) and date field types. Geo-location coming soon.
  • Intelligent value conversion - map Captur zones to fields without worrying about data conversion.
  • Support for international decimal separators (. and ,) in numerical fields.
  • Smart date support. "12th June 2020" will be automatically converted to a date which can be used in date comparisons when searching.
Search (available without Captur)
  • Foldr's battle-tested search crawler can process thousands of documents per-day with support for parallel processing.
  • All custom fields are indexed with Foldr search allowing you to find the data that you need quickly and easily.
  • Advanced search capabilities based on field-type (e.g. search for dates within certain ranges).
  • Use Foldr's query builder to construct advanced search queries with multiple conditions and grouping from an easy-to-use UI.
