Case Study: Processing of opinion polls
at wine tasting MUNDUSvini
The MUNDUSvini Great International Wine Award has become one of the most prestigious wine awards in the world. It is held annually in Neustadt an der Weinstraße in Germany. Over the course of two weeks, some 180 well-known international wine experts taste more than 4,000 wines from all over the world.
To process 30,000 opinion polls with 60 check boxes and two barcodes each within a short amount of time – that was the challenge set by MUNDUSvini for our data capture technology. Since 2001, FormPro serves as the gateway between paper and the database. Two Fujitsu fi-4530C scanners ensure the required throughput of 100 Seiten per minute enabling the Academy to processes polls without delay even at peak times.
FormPro reads the images created by the scanners, processes the check boxes and barcodes and writes records to a FileMaker 8 database. There, the verification of the results, the correction of errors and the calculation of the results will occur. Thank to FormPro, an accuracy rate of 100% can be achieved with only one person in the manual correction process.
Despite of the high throughput of 100 pages per minute FormPro still has enough performance reserves and excels with its remarkable stability.
