September 16, 2010

DMS expert DocuWare certifies Data Capture Specialist ABBYY's FlexiCapture Exporter


ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic software, and DMS pioneer DocuWare have  announced the certification of the ABBYY DocuWare Connector to the document management system DocuWare. The cooperation strengthens their relationship by sharing expertise and enhancing the competitive capacities of both companies.


Organizations everywhere still grapple with the flood of incoming documents produced by their daily correspondence. To deal with this problem an integrated solution which offers an efficient implementation and administration of these documents into the company's workflow is crucial. Data capture systems like ABBYY FlexiCapture are able to automatically classify and extract the relevant information out of paper documents such as invoices or delivery slips. The extracted data can be fed to a document management system and integrated into relevant business processes.


“By certifying the connector between ABBYY FlexiCapture and DocuWare, we give customers confidence that their important data will be securely and reliably delivered to the DMS,” states Jupp Stoepetie, CEO of ABBYY Europe GmbH. “For many customers, a seamless integration of their digital archive into other applications and components is a crucial criterion. The certification clearly demonstrates to the market that we offer an integrated solution with secure investment.”


Certified for version 5.1b SP3, the ABBYY DocuWare Connector uses the GAPI interface implemented in DocuWare in order to transfer the captured data to the DMS.


“Because our certification program is strictly subjected to a set of quality guidelines, we can ensure that both solutions are 100% compatible,” emphasizes DocuWare President Juergen Biffar.  “Customers can optimize their business processes through automated capture, processing and archiving of their records. Additionally, partners have the opportunity to expand their business by implementing document and data capture.”
