We are converting 3,800 pages of pdf content to a database.
Currently the print catalogs are in two forms. One is PDF and one is Quark. We have to reverse out the data and put it into a database. Imagine taking a sears catalog, extracting the part number and then extracting the descriptive text.

+the data is in two forms: PDF or Quark.
+the data is in tables
+the data can be extracted at a rate as low as 4 per minute
+there are appx 100K total skus and 3800 pages of text

There is no character recognition necessary. It's all in text and tables, someone just has to use logic and a simple spreadsheet with 2 columns to house the data.

I have done up to 10 per minute without problem. This is not data entry, but it's pretty close.
