Digital Transformation for the Food Industry

Food safety is a highly scrutinized issue, and many food industry businesses are feeling the effects. Many restaurants and food industry businesses are struggling to balance their business obligations with safety requirements and regulations. These issues are compounded by the fact that many restaurant owners still use labor-intensive paper-based processes that hinder their efforts.

In the digital age, many restaurant owners and food industry businesses are turning to digital transformation technologies including intelligent document processing to streamline paper-based repetitive processes. With intelligent data capture and process automation, the food sector can achieve greater flexibility and organization while minimizing costs.

Intelligent data capture is a process where a software system applies machine learning and powerful OCR/ICR/OMR technologies to extract data from scanned paper and digital documents and convert that data into actionable values.

This intelligent data capture technology coupled with other digital transformation technologies including AI, machine learning, and business process automation are embedded into Artsyl’s comprehensive intelligent process automation solutions for data and document processing.
