One of the things about my job is that I get to touch, taste, smell and use all kinds of great technology. One of the reasons I started “Ramon’s Taste of Tech” was to be able to SHOW you all the great technology I come across.
In this latest edition of Ramon’s Taste of Tech I review Anoto’s digital pen. Imagine a regular pen, about as thick as a marker. This pen lets you fill out forms and in real time capture what’s written on the form. When you dock the pen to your computer or wirelessly transmit the information to your computer, a digital image of the filled out form is sent to your computer. From here you can then upload the information to a database, share it with colleagues or anything else you can dream of.
Anoto’s digital pen is only one part of the equation. The other part of the equation is the software, such as Capturx, which is used to create your forms and that integrates into your forms process system such as Sharepoint, Excel, adding the data to a simple database or other software.
Maybe you’re in an industry like a doctor’s office, real estate agent, construction site, and must use paper. But you’re tired of having your back office have to retype the information on the form or not getting it fast enough. Using a digital pen you get the paper you need, have the information quickly transmitted to your forms processing system and don’t have to worry about data entry mistakes.
