Lockheed Martin Uses TMSSequoia, Now Accusoft, to Process Data in the 2000 Decennial Census

Very few software firms can claim to affect every American. Yet touching “every hand in the land” accurately describes TMSSequoia, now Accusoft, thanks to its participation in the 2000 decennial census. Compared to the numbers involved with most document technology applications, the census statistics are flabbergasting. Over a quarter-billion people registered on forms from over 100 million families, making this the largest, most complex data capture project in history.

About the Client

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 105,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.

This was not only the most extensive use of technology to process a census, it was also the first time the Census has used automated recognition technology to read handwriting. Our DCS 2000 helped the Census Bureau capture more data in less time and with greater accuracy than ever before.
