           I.R.I.S. has announced the implementation a project for scanning and automatic form recognition for TEC Charleroi. TEC stands for "Transport En Commun" (Public Transport) and refers to five public transport companies in Belgium. The TEC Charleroi provides transit services to about 500,000 citizens and has almost 30 million passengers yearly.

           The company has 75 lines and over 1,000 employees.
           TEC Charleroi needed to improve its scanning and form recognition capabilities for processing ticket reimbursement requests. Used with a scanner, IRISPowerscan scans the forms and allows for better control of the image quality. The reimbursement requests are converted to electronic format and transferred to the recognition software IRISCapture Pro for Forms. The application extracts the information needed for the automatical processing of the request, and performs consistency checks. Then it exports the images of the scanned forms, and the captured information.
           Etienne Van de Kerckhove, CEO of the I.R.I.S. Group, says: "I.R.I.S. has a vast experience in this area and we are delighted to have been able to convince TEC Charleroi of both the quality of our products and technologies, and of our expertise in managing major projects for numerous Belgian government bodies and companies. All of this has enabled I.R.I.S. to successfully conduct form recognition projects throughout Europe; in Belgium these include the Ministry of Finance (ScanFin project for recognition of VAT forms and income tax declarations), The Nature and Forestry Division of the Walloon Region, the Flemish Government Agency for Agriculture and Fisheries, etc."
