I’ve recently run into an instance where I was researching a solution for an issue with a project I was working on. The project involved taking a paper form, scanning it into a computer using Acrobat, using OCR text recognition to extract information, and sorting the form into appropriate folders in Sharepoint based on the information extracted from the PDF.
I ran into a product that would extract certain fields into Sharepoint through stackoverflow, however, when I saw the vendor’s website I became incredulous. Why should I trust a product made by this vendor when their website doesn’t even function up to my standards?
I took a screenshot of the two different phone numbers and their validation result.
I decided to give this product a shot. I’ll let you know how it goes. Until then, would YOU trust a digital product if the vendor’s website had such huge errors? Is this a case of judging a book by its cover or being a cautious customer?
