Key Products / Services / Sectors (USPs)
Our technology efficiently scans ID cards and performs face recognition to verify a user’s identity. This technology can be easily integrated or implemented directly into our clients/ partners systems and applications or we can build an effective customised solution based on the requirements.
OCR Labs has developed its own proprietary OCR engine and face recognition system which has been developed for speed and reliability. Being completely proprietary means extreme flexibility and adaptability to meet almost any need with our own modification. Ease of use is critical and is a major driver of how we engineer our solutions. Being able to deploy on premises or via cloud our solution architecture can meet all data security requirements and match to clients I.T infrastructure needs.
Fully supported from the UK and Australia ensures support coverage globally.
OCR Labs is a big advocate of running streamlined processes which is why we have packaged our technology as both native SDK’s, enabling mobile app functionality, and as a suite of APIs and toolsets enabling modern web experiences. The aim is to allow ease and flexibility of use across different software platforms and business channels for consistency.
What makes us unique is that our technology is completely proprietary, innovative, accurate and the method in we distribute our technology as SDKs to our clients is highly flexible, scalable, risk averse and efficient to manage.
We have a very strong research and development program which has been our primary core focus.
