Capture business ready data anytime, anywhere

Orion Live Ink is a proprietary data-capturing solution consisting of a digital pen embedded with Orion’s character recognition technology that digitally captures handwritten information and converts it into digital numeric data with 100% accuracy. It securely captures data in real time with a patented digital pen and a standard tablet (Android/Windows) device that transmits data to the server or cloud with encryption.

It eliminates the time and cost associated with scanning to digitize data and minimizes chances of human error. Since it’s user-friendly, Orion Live Ink is an ideal solution for automating paper-driven processes, such as field services, surveys, registration forms, etc. that often rely on handwritten data.

How Orion Live Ink works 

Orion’s Live Ink is comprised of a traditional pen and paper methodology for capturing data. Orion Live Ink technology digitizes handwritten data with 100% accuracy. Through its data capture and transfer, it accelerates the process to consolidate data by more than 80% when compared to other technologies. Orion Live Ink requires no major investment, saves valuable time and cost by eliminating the need for scanning, and takes just two easy steps to digitize data:

  • Transcribe: Use the specially designed pen to instantaneously transcribe the handwritten data.
  • Digitize: The tablet app then digitizes the handwritten data. You can review and confirm for it to be autosubmitted.


  • Captures handwritten data using a patented pen and iPad or Android tablet
  • Applies totaling and rubrics in real time for faster data submission


  • Accelerates the data entry process and reduces manual effort
  • Eliminates possibility for errors
  • No special training and little adaptation required since data entry is nearly identical to the traditional pen and paper method

The solution reduces efforts required for managing a huge volumes of paper-work while streamlining digitization of documents for the citizenry as well as inter-departmental work. 

Retail and Logistics: Empower your delivery with real-time visibility 

Retail and logistics companies are witnessing a phenomenal rise in demand due to rapid proliferation of online stores. Both organized and unorganized retails channels are set to grow at a very rapid pace over the next few years. However, expanding the service reach by developing strong back and front-end supply and logistic networks will require a technology that can capture data accurately.

Orion’s Live Ink solution is an apt solution for this emerging need of retail organizations. With a digital pen and tablet, data can be captured remotely and transferred to the main servers via mobile devices to streamline any tasks demanding paperwork. This real time data can be used as a proof of delivery as well to resolve any issues or disputes and subsequently improve customer service. 

Healthcare: Drive effective healthcare outcomes by setting new standards for quality care 

Data governance is a critical aspect of quality healthcare and also one of the most challenging to manage. To support care delivery and other functions, medical records need to be securely stored and accurately tracked. They must be available to providers at a second’s notice – while, at the same time, remain compliant with Government and State regulations. Capturing this unstructured health information and updating patient records often takes up valuable time for providers that instead could be utilized to deliver better patient care.

Orion Live Ink can effectively bridge this gap by enabling data capture in real-time while employing the conventional digital pen and paper method. The data can be validated further to ensure corrections are made before it is submitted to patient records server.
