“The fuzzy searching was fantastic. When there was an OCR mistake, we were still able to find what we were looking for in the text.”
Modern Micro Imaging's mission is to help businesses connect their “old world” microfilm and paper documents with their modern digital counterparts. Recently, Modern Micro Imaging began incorporating the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine into solutions where customers needed text search and retrieval for the massive databases that Modern Micro Imaging would create.

Modern Micro Imaging developed an information management system called VFX, or Virtual File Exchange, for a major power company. The data Modern Micro Imaging entered into the system was a mixture of text files and associated images. The purpose of the system was to enable power plant operators to quickly find documents relating to power plant construction, maintenance and financial records.

To its VFX system, Modern Micro Imaging decided to add the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine for full-text searching. “It's a great product. The dtSearch Engine's controls were easy to understand and use, both in-house and for our customers,” said Doug Jones, Director, Computer Imaging Services, Modern Micro Imaging. “The fuzzy searching was fantastic. When there was an OCR mistake, we were still able to find what we were looking for in the text.”

Founded in 1975, Modern Micro Imaging is located “inside the beltway” in the Washington D.C. area. Its internal service bureau processes hundreds of thousands of pages per day in document conversions using high-speed paper and microform scanning equipment. Its specialists are expert in the application of OCR (Optical Character Recognition), automatic indexing and manually-keyed bibliographic techniques for creating powerful document databases.
