To overthrow the existing traditional time-wasting questionnaire reading with high cost, InfoAcer created a new opportunity for improvement. Just by using the popular document editing software such as word, excel and photoshop, you can design and print the questionnaire card/paper and scan them after being filled for the system to automatically process and recognize and deliver the reviewed result, information and score. Compared to the traditional complicate manual review and data calculation, Info OMR allows you to use flexibly, reduce the cost and improve the work efficiency.
