applications of OMR scanners and software are limitless, in a similar way to the Swiss Army Knife

What are the main uses, or applications for Optical Mark Readers? There are many different scenarios in which data needs to be captured, processed and reported as information. Just like the Swiss Army knife is a tool, and is found to be useful in a variety of situations, so too are the products and services provided by MurrayData. Everyday uses for our Optical Mark Readers, OCR, ICR, barcode, image and forms processing systems are:

Examinations – such as mutliple choice question (MCQ), true/false and extended matching assessments, as well as Objective Structured Clinical Exams (OSCE) and Objective Structured Practical Exams (OSPE).

Surveys – such as staff, patients, students and customers, allowing you to really gauge the temperature with anonymous or personalised feedback.

Inspections – whether it be cocoa farms, wind turbine sites, or just about anything that needs to be checked regularly and at multiple sites.

Alcohol Screening – one of the newest applications for this technology, it uses a standard AUDIT or FAST form and scores it when scanned to identify ‘at risk’ patients.

Outpatient Feedback – another NHS application, but this time capturing patient feedback from outpatient clinics, in an anonymous manner, but retaining the patient opinions and doctor ID number from a barcode label.

Research Studies – such as detailed health studies, opinion research, social studies, psychology monitoring and medicinal trials.
