IBM Datacap Taskmaster Capture improves productivity and customer satisfaction

Business need
With more than 8,000 subscription orders and marketing cards arriving daily, keeping pace with the data-entry burden was a formidable challenge. Data-entry had to be done manually, slowing the process.

To automate its data-entry functions, Dow Jones uses both standard rules provided by IBM Datacap, integrated with IBM FileNet Image Services, as well as custom rules developed to meet its own demanding requirements.

Cut in half subscription turnaround time from 48 hours to under a day; increased customer satisfaction; 5 employees reallocated to new responsibilities; more timely marketing decisions.
