State of the Art Archive Digitisation

Administrative tasks make up a large part of the public sector. Every day, thousands of documents are created and filed - often physically. Due to the increasing time pressure and workload of employees, it is becoming more and more important that the information in the archives is quickly available. Acodis offers you simple and customisable digitisation and data extraction services to digitise complete archives and transform them into machine-readable formats. All of which is thanks to our intelligent document processing tool.


"There are many valuable collections of information that are not yet available digitally, and we are proud every time we can help make these treasures of knowledge available."

The manual processing of the tabs would have cost us a lot of time. With the automated solution from Acodis, we were able to reduce the manual effort considerably, while at the same time investing in a future-oriented technology.

Have you done other projects with archives or similar where you used Machine Learning?

There are many valuable collections of information that are not yet available digitally, and we are proud every time we can help make these treasures of knowledge available. For example, there are index cards from city archives that were previously only available in analog form, where a search for this data set meant a trip to the archives. Through digitisation, which we were allowed to work on, it is now possible to carry out this research on the computer. Or also worth mentioning is the platform Retrodigital of the Canton of St. Gallen, where official documents of the canton are made available to the public digitally, with a similar degree of indexing as we have seen with the KdS-online platform.

What types of documents can be digitized with Acodis?

As a rule, the documents we process are relatively short and numerous. You can think of delivery notes, invoices, and other business documents that come in daily.
But in the end, the type and presentations of the documents that we process vary a lot. It goes from a book to standardized one-page documents, which contain semi-structured information.

Where does the processing take place (geographically)?

When we process data, it depends on how much it is worth protecting. We have customers who say they can't leave our premises so Acodis provides them on-premise solutions. Others say they can't leave Switzerland. Then, of course, we can have it processed on a Swiss server. If it is entirely harmless data, then it can also happen somewhere in Germany or even America. Where the data is finally processed is less central for us, we are very flexible.
