Thanks to Captricity for sponsoring the event and providing food and drinks, and to Rackspace as usual for allowing us to use their San Francisco office meeting room.

Kuang Chen, Founder and CEO, Captricity

The idea for Captricity came from Kuang’s dissertation research in east Africa, where he built software systems to transform paper forms to structured, machine-readable data. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from UC Berkeley.

Enterprise-class Data Capture for Salesforce

Captricity’s data extraction platform feeds paper, fax and pdf forms into Salesforce faster than manual entry and more accurately than OCR.  Captricity+ Paper-to-Cloud handles your most challenging data capture needs with 99% accuracy.  Our unique blend of machine learning and human intelligence ensures that we handle all types of text, including handwriting and human marks.

Start with paper, scans, PDFs, fax, or our mobile app to automatically create digital records from forms.  Map your Salesforce fields to Captricity fields in minutes with no programming. Then, with just a click, data from Captricity flows into your Salesforce account. We handle custom objects, multiple objects, lookups, picklists and more.

During a quick demo, we will run some quick examples of how current users are taking advantage of Captricity+ Paper-to-Cloud to save time and extend their use of the Salesforce platform.
