Smaply Capture

Smaply Capture helps you digitize pen and paper journey maps by taking a picture, letting powerful handwriting recognition read and translate it to digital and uploading it to Smaply. Here comes a short introduction how it works.

What is Smaply Capture?

Smaply Capture allows you to quickly digitize pen and paper journey maps with Smaply. You simply take a picture, powerful handwriting recognition (also called OCR, optical character recognition) then recognizes the text and uploads a digital version of your journey map to smaply. Hence, you save time and effort for manual work and can immediately continue working on your insights in a digital environment, share it with your team or present it to others.
