Who Uses Captricity?
A commission chairperson who needs to unlock paper-bound data for an open data portal
A division manager looking to cut cost and delay in processing operational reports
A city CIO who wants to cut in half the number of employees focused on fulfilling FOIA requests
Civil servants can serve citizens again, not wrangle paper forms.
Today, agencies at all levels are asked to do more: offer more services and open more datasets to the public.
Yet you need access to your data to make that happen. Manual and “assisted” data entry are both slow and costly. Plus, neither is designed to unlock large amounts of paper-bound information in machine-readable format or redact protected data.
A new, better way to digitize your data
Let Captricity turn your forms into digital data, so you can focus implementing policy and better serving citizens.
Well beyond scanning software and OCR, Captricity harnesses the power of machine learning and human intelligence to turn forms (paper forms, PDFs, faxes, etc…) into structured data. Even traditionally difficult tasks, like handwriting recognition, are a breeze for our award-winning technology. Here’s what Captricity offers:
- Fast Turnaround: No more waiting days or weeks (or more) for human workers to turn around your data entry tasks. Captricity produces data in a fraction of that time, even for high volumes.
- High Accuracy: Captricity uses a combination of machine learning algorithms and human workers to ensure double-entry quality (over 99% accuracy for most data). Up to five people verify the accuracy of your data. So you can focus on service delivery, not data entry errors.
- No Hassles. No Contracts: With Captricity, you pay a low price tailored to what your agency will use each month. No contracts, no installation or update fees, and no hassles. Now any agency large or small can access the best-of-breed technology.
- Secure and Private: Captricity uses bank-grade encryption to protect your data. Moreover, our data transcription process is designed to maximize both accuracy and privacy.
- Easy Integration + Mobile: Captricity’s mobile app and RESTful API enable you to plug real-time data digitization into existing systems and processes. Need your work reports entered into your accounting system but facing a long backlog? Captricity has you covered.
- Built-in Redaction: Captricity makes it easy to redact sensitive information, making compliance, media and FOIA requests quick and easy – no additional setup. Imagine preparing forms for an open data portal and for FOIA requests with just the click of a button.
Unlock more data for your Open Gov Initiative
Unlock information from public records and operations forms quickly and easily. The benefits of an open data portal directly correlate to the quantity and quality of information available – is the data accurate and clean for civic programmers really use? Do you offer the information that engaged citizens want access to or just what’s easily available? Data feeds the applications that developers build – without opening your data your agency or city or state can’t take advantage of new trends in citizen engagement.
How are other government agencies using Captricity?
A state-level government agency has for years put scans of required filings online in order to provide transparency to citizens and activist groups. With data locked away hundreds of thousands of PDF pages, even reporters could not comb through it all. The agency came to Captricity to turn those form images into structured data quickly and at a cost far less than the alternatives.
