World Challenge document & data processing levels up by 300 percent thanks to DRS DocXP

The original schools expedition company, World Challenge, has deployed DocXP, an intelligent document and data capture solution provided by global data capture specialists DRS, to improve efficiency.

Before World Challenge implemented DocXP, the maximum number of applications being processed by one person in one day was 80; now up to 240 can be processed.  The increase in data analysed from feedback forms allows World Challenge to adapt to its customers’ demands, something of critical importance to the company.

Jenny Monro, Business Systems Manager at World Challenge comments: “As the World Challenge offices in the US and Australia expand we will be introducing DocXP to them so that they too can benefit from the improved efficiency and accuracy this system delivers.”

DocXP is DRS’ document capture, classification, data capture, storage and retrieval system that allows documents to be scanned and electronically filed with all the data accessible online and instantly available.  The functional offering of DocXP offered the best fit to meet World Challenge’s requirement, as well as being the most cost effective solution, providing the highest level of efficiency and demonstrating an ‘easy to use’ system.

With DocXP, World Challenge’s application forms, post-expedition feedback questionnaires and other feedback forms are scanned and processed quickly and accurately.  The data is then transferred into their own bespoke system which is easily accessible to all staff.
