676k voting papers (color, A3 duplex) processed in a three-week voting period.
Existing data capture technology was cumbersome and created blocks in the queue, holding up a highly time sensitive process.
Need for a content and process intelligence solution that integrates with an existing Oracle based Election Management System.
The solution must ensure seamless process ﬂow through various stages, integrate business rules, allow double veriﬁcation, and capture data on double-sided pages with the highest level of accuracy.
Solution architecture must be able to scale based on inﬂux of voter ballots received by mail each day, sometimes in the tens of thousands.
On-site support is needed as insurance against unforeseen scenarios that could threaten processing and timing of election results within a secure vote processing environment with no network connections available to meet stringent vote processing security requirements.

The ABBYY solution's ability to operate according to applied business rules, such as accurately processing ballot selections, is a gamechanger for a highly time consuming, data sensitive, and outcome centric process.

ABBYY Content Intelligence transformed the entire process to be more agile and deliver fail-safe outcomes.
