  • 1. Forms Management Systems Contact: Frank Bracq / fbracq@fms-forms.com
  • 2. © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 2 ] INTRODUCTION
  • 3. The Context
    • In the digital era, paper forms are still a preferred tool for collecting information
      • Easy implementation and use
      • Entrenchment in work habits
      • Reliability of the pen/paper combination
      • Compliance with legal or regulatory framework
    • Except for interactive data entry, electronic input devices are costlier and less user friendly than the pen & paper combination
    © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 3 ]
  • 4. Paper automation is a major challenge
    • Unlocking business critical content from paper forms efficiently is a key step towards improving business process productivity and quality
      • Reduction of the costs and timelines associated with the transfer of handwritten data within the IS
      • Minimization of the error rate
      • Compliance with work habits and practices
    © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 4 ] Validation Data entry Integration within the IS Mail Fax Reception preparation Data keying Scan OCR
  • 5. The Answer
    • Anoto’s digital pen and paper technology has emerged as the reliable, operational answer to bridge paper and digital worlds
      • The paper form/pen combination becomes a peripheral device used for data entry, in the same way as the keyboard, the mouse, or the bar code scanner
      • Handwritten data is instantaneously available for further processing in backend application

    © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 35 ]
  • 31. Anoto Functionality: Operating Principle © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 36 ]
    • The solution’s ingenuity lies in the combined use
      • of a pattern of micro dots printed on a piece of standard paper ,
      • and a digital pen capable of faithfully recording its movements along this pattern.
    • The time/date-stamped coordinates [X,Y] of the points that characterize the pen’s path along the sheet of paper are sent to the processing platform (PC or server) via USB or Bluetooth link.
    • Implementing a handwriting recognition engine, the processing application retrieves the handwritten data as images and XML data.
  • 32. Anoto Technology
    • Implements 3 components:
    © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 37 ] Digital forms Digital pen Images +XML data Processing application
  • 33. The Digital Forms (1/2) © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 38 ]
    • Almost invisible to the naked eye, the pattern of dots is printed in offset or digitally on standard quality paper.
    1.8 mm 1.8 mm
    • Each point is positioned precisely on a virtual grid.
    • The 36 points contained within a 1.8mm x 1.8mm square constitute a unique patterns inside a surface area amounting to 60 million km2.
  • 34. The Digital Forms (2/2) © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 39 ]
    • The presence of the Anoto pattern thus allows for:
      • the definite identification of every page of every copy of a form
      • the structuring of information collected through the exact knowledge of the pen’s position on the page
    2 1 1.8 mm 1.8 mm
  • 35. Digital Pen © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 40 ]
    • Scarcely thicker than an ordinary pen, it combines a ball point pen with electronics
    • Data are sent to the processing platform (PC or server) via a USB or Bluetooth link
    • Integrated bar code scanner
  • 36. Pen © Forms Management Systems - 2006 - [ 41 ]
    • A FULL WORKDAY
    • Autonomy:
      • 8 hours of continuous use (normal profile)
      • 3 hours of continuous writing
      • 20 hours in sleep mode (cap open)
    • Memory capacity: 200 A4 forms
    • Easy to use
    • Ideal for external use (difficult working conditions)
  • 37. IT Application
    • There is an IT processing approach for every form
    • Main functionalities
      • Acquisition and processing of handwritten data from the pen
      • Handwriting recognition
      • Retrieval of handwritten information as structured digital data using an XML format combined with images
