Personalize With Word Merge
The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) - Business Service Center needed a way to better organize exam sessions for employment candidates from three northeastern states. With so many exams and sessions the department had to find a way to more efficiently handle forms and further automate processing.
Spectrum helped the agency design a new form that is personalized and barcoded using Microsoft Word and the built-in merge feature. The more exact forms made the examination process easier to administer and helped automate processing.
The days when you were forced to purchase static, pre-printed, proprietary and very expensive forms are over. Now using the laser printer or multifunctional copier you already own will do just fine. Print as many forms as you need, when you need them, on plain paper.
In addition, common software such as Micrsoft Word can be used to design your test answer sheet or survey questionnaire. Last minute changes are easy, giving you the flexibility to incorporate all of the best data collection ideas.
Smart Device Scanning Stand
Image quality, document alignment and speed are all critical factors when scanning multiple forms to collect data.
Spectrum has created ScanJig - a scanning stand that turns smart devices into fast, accurate document scanners for optical character recognition (OCR) and optical mark recognition (OMR).
With the help of a scanning stand distributed capture solution can be implemented using existing phones or tablets. Great for knowledge workers in the field or at a home office.
Needs Analysis & Integration
The first goal is to obtain a good understanding of the customers data collection requirements, staff, existing scanner hardware, printers and software.
What elements of the older system, if any, can be saved?
Then the solution emerges.
It comes together using the readily available and familiar pieces in the customer's environment. The benefits; a shorter learning curve, much lower cost and fast implementation.
