The Russian device Promobot Scanner instantly scans documents, automatically fills in the necessary fields, and transmits them to various information systems — such as 1C or The Federal Service for State Registration. This reduces the time for preparing accounting statements by 11 times.
Promobot Scanner is a software and hardware complex for automatic scanning and recognition of documents. The system immediately makes a scan and independently fills in the necessary fields in the information system and forms a package of documents necessary to provide the service.
It is enough to place a document on the scanner: the system recognizes the data in 6 seconds, fills out the necessary form, and forms an application. Previously, accountants had to wait for a long time until the scanning process was completed. Then they had to fill out documents manually; according to the device’s creators, this led to errors in the completion process and then to refusals to accept documents from relevant departments (due to incorrectly submitted reports). Now the entire process of recognition, scanning, and filling in data takes place in a few seconds.
«Reduced turnaround time is the most important task of organizations, including government departments and authorities. – says Oleg Kivokurtsev, the CBDO of Promobot. — Our invention will help people get the necessary services faster, wait in line less, and departments will improve the efficiency of employees, freeing them from manual data entry.”
Promobot Scanner implements lean production principles: reducing non-production costs and reducing the loss of resources involved in production. The complex will help to increase the productivity of employees and the quality of customer service. This corresponds to the goals of the national project “Labor Productivity and Employment Support,” which should be implemented in the Russian Federation by 2024.
Promobot was founded in 2015 in Perm. In the same year, the company became a resident of the IT cluster at Skolkovo Foundation.
