Cognitive OpenOCR is an open source program for Microsoft Dynamics GP. It's free and was developed by combining the libraries from several open source OCR applications, and by collecting user feedback and input. It doesn't have many bloatware tools when installation, but they're easily avoidable, since the software works with so many different languages. One of the best things about Cognitive OpenOCR (other than its simplicity) is that it integrates extremely well with Microsoft SharePoint and other MS Office programs.
The problem with so many of the current OCR platforms available to business is that they're all based on Windows, which is not an ideal platform for enterprise applications due to the security risks associated with using Windows, especially in a cloud environment. Cognitive OpenOCR however is designed to run on Windows, so it can be used with any of the other available OCR platforms out there, as long as they're all running on the same server. If you have a Windows based system, Cognitive OpenOCR should work out of the box. If you use Windows based machines for your business, however, you'll want to look into hosted OCR solutions like Microsoft Business Solutions. These type of hosted solutions allow you to use Microsoft Cognitive Studio or Visual Studio to build your own cognitive recognition software, while leveraging already existing back end processing and data sources.
One of the key features of Cognitive OpenOCR (other than its simplicity and integration with Microsoft systems) is the implementation of a convolutional neural network, called the ConvNet. The convent is a network that "lays down" the actual image or text that is being recognized. This then becomes the basis for generating high-quality, crisp voice recognition results. Another key feature of Cognitive OpenOCR is that it implements the idea of optical character recognition. By making use of the convolutional network and OCR technologies, this product promises to deliver near flawless recognition results, while saving large amounts of money and time during the process.
