OCR Systeme GmbH was founded in 1990 as a subsidiary of the renowned OCR manufacturer Recognita. The goal of this founding was to distribute OCR software on the German market. With the introduction of the Recognita Development Toolkit in 1993 we seized the opportunity to also establish ourselves as a system integrator and offer our services for integrating OCR into third-pary systems.

In 1995, our headquarter moved into the Gohlis Arcades and we built up our own software development focusing on forms processing. With the relase of our programs Formulator in 1996 and FormPro in 1998 and their continously growing popularity we occupied attractive market niches and established ourselves as an independent software manufacturer.

The permanent further development of FormPro culminated in version 3.0 in 2015. In the meantime, we released OCR Console in 2009 to close the gap between OCR software with graphical user interfaces and fully grown development tools.

is our DNA.


No matter if you are a user searching for a specific solution or a software developer tasked to evaluate professional OCR — we will find or develop the perfect software for you. For most application scenarios, we will access our portfolio of sophisticated, pre-fabricated software and adapt the programs to your needs. If this should not be possible we will develop a special application based on the OmniPage Capture SDK, the market-leading toolkit for image processing and OCR.
