Case Study
The article presents a case study on how the Yorkshire Purchasing Organization (YPO) in England has improved the efficiency of its information management operation through DocXP Intelligent Data Capture (IDC) software from DRS Data Services Ltd. YPO has designed a technology to optimize its scanning operation, so the data could be automatically input into its warehousing system. However, its scanning operation has not been useful for catalogue stock and direct supply orders, which is the reason why they opted to use the DocXP IDC. Detailed information regarding the function of DocXP IDC is discussed.
