Key benefits

All of Sangkar Sari Teknologi’s clients who moved to IronOCR experienced significant improvement in efficiency and stability. IronOCR uses custom multithreading to make it significantly faster than other products, including Tesseract.

They generated three times less support tickets, because the image filters allow automatic adjustment of badly scanned input documents; and the setup could perform (without crashing) under a massive task load. The new configuration met their security requirements without any need to send documents offsite.

Customers surveyed were more satisfied with the new configuration, improving their overall monthly customer satisfaction score (CSAT) ranking up by 25%.


“Ultimately, when looking at the rest of the market, IronOCR was a more powerful solution because it had the highest throughput.”, said Eky Purnomo, Technology Lead.

The Solution

When choosing IronOCR, the team had a set of criteria. Firstly it had to integrate with the existing setup/ Secondly, it needed to function effectively. Thirdly, licensing was also a consideration.

“In this case, we needed a product that was compatible with the application I had built, using .NET Core 2. It had to be able to read PDF files from a scanner machine with high accuracy. We wanted a solution that gave us results, quickly,” continued Eky Purnomo.

IronOCR ticked criteria one and two, but how did its cost compare with competitors?

“IronOCR was actually cheaper,” says Eky Purnomo, when taking into account the more favorable licensing structure.
