Anoto digital pen technology enables the capture of a user's handwriting whether it is text, an illustration or a check in a box on a form and transmits the data back to a PC or server -- via a docking station or a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone -- without the need to hand-key notes. The Anoto dot pattern that is easily printed on paper ensures complete traceability and data collection accuracy. The result is minimal interruption of current workflow and a dramatic reduction of administration time for staff, all while retaining complete mobility.
