ICR / OCR - Downloads to populate Filemaker Quotation Database


Hi Folks,

Im working on a quotation system regarding manufacturing for a construction company .. Currently they receive drawings in both electronic and paper format .. these may have typed or hand written instructions on them regarding the bill of quantities which engineers would then read & type into the filemaker database creating the required quote for the customer.

The manufacturing company would like it if there was some OCR/ICR facility to scan these documents and then automatically populate the filemaker database quote with the scanned details?

Im not sure if there is a good enough OCR/ICR solution out there but I was just wondering if anyone on here has done this type of thing before or if there was a plugin etc.. and how successful it was?
