ABBYY Announces End-to-End Mobile Data Capture Solution for Enterprises Looking to Expand Mobile Channels

New Solution Leverages Company's Camera OCR and FlexiCapture Technologies to bring New Opportunities for Enterprises to Engage with Customers and Enable Their Mobile Workforce

MILPITAS, Calif., -- ABBYY®, a leading provider of document recognition, document capture, and linguistic technologies and services, today announced its Mobile Data Capture Solution, ushering in a new age of time-saving convenience for consumers, and powerful opportunities for enterprises to win and retain new customers through expanded mobile channels. Integrating ABBYY's cutting edge document recognition and document capture technologies, it enables enterprises to expand the range and adoption of their services -- by turning camera-equipped mobile devices into the simplest way ever to capture, process and share data.

With embedded image processing on the device working in concert with server or cloud-based intelligent recognition and data capture, users can instantly extract information from virtually any source, including paper documents, license plates, restaurant menus, gas and water meters, street signs or packaging. From there, with two or three clicks, they can populate a wide variety of forms, update content management applications, or send information for further processing.

As Andrey Isaev, director of Technology Products Department at ABBYY, describes: "Applications based on the solution will mean that mobile devices can make many time-consuming tasks such as paying bills, ticket registration, banking and completing tax forms fast, easy and simple to accomplish."

Yet as Isaev explains, the benefits for companies can be even more profound. "By enhancing their services with a mobile channel, companies will get closer to their customers and have even more opportunities for expanding into mobile channels. For example, they can attract new groups of customers from among hundreds of millions of mobile phone users -- and then leverage entirely new ways to market and promote themselves through mobile applications that utilize the camera as a scanner. And all the while creating an internal channel for fast data exchange between their own employees and partners."

ABBYY Mobile Data Capture Solution offers a powerful way for organizations in the insurance, healthcare, banking and government sectors, to reach clients and meet their needs. With it, they can create applications for conducting financial transactions, calculating the prices of goods and services, inputting data into back-end systems (e.g. insurance claims), controlling home energy consumption, and more. "This," asserts Isaev, "provides an opportunity for organizations to extend the availability of their services, while reducing the costs associated with handling piles of documents from those they serve."

The unique advantages of the ABBYY Mobile Data Capture Solution are the result of industry-leading software technologies and professional services. ABBYY's Mobile Data Capture Solution combines the company's advanced Camera OCR(TM) (Optical Character Recognition) technology for photo processing, with intelligent FlexiCapture(TM) technology for data and document capture -- along with a wide range of ABBYY mobile technologies specifically designed for mobile devices.

And as the world's only developer of the full spectrum of core technologies for document recognition and data capture, and mobile technologies, ABBYY matches the quality of its solutions with world class support for developers and business partners.
