ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and language software, today announced that ABBYY Scan Station, its new software solution for batch document scanning, is now available in the CIS countries and Eastern Europe. ABBYY Scan Station enables scanning and export of hundreds of pages within minutes and provides a wide range of useful tools for enhancing quality of scanned images. It can be used for capturing and digitizing large document archives as well as for scanning small amounts of documents with a standard workgroup scanner. In addition, organizations with regional offices and subsidiaries can easily deploy a distributed document capture system, having ABBYY Scan Station installed in different locations, with centralized document processing and storage.


With its intuitive interface, ABBYY Scan Station is easy to operate and navigate even if the operator has no or little experience in document scanning. At the same time, it is a professional solution based on powerful scanning technology that has been successfully used in the leading ABBYY products such as ABBYY FineReader, ABBYY FormReader, and ABBYY FlexiCapture.


“More and more companies are moving to paperless environment to streamline document processing and business operations”, said Aram Pakhchanian, Director of Data Capture Products Department at ABBYY. “The first step in this process is to organize fast and convenient document scanning. We believe that ABBYY Scan Station, which is highly productive yet very simple to use, will help even small companies take this step easily”.

Key Features of ABBYY Scan Station:

  • Intelligent Scanning Technology — ABBYY Scan Station scans documents in batches. Multi-page documents in each batch can be separated according to specified parameters such as number of pages, empty separator pages, or barcodes. The processing settings are saved in special profiles, Batch Types. Each profile includes scanning, image processing, document separation and export settings making work with different document types easy and efficient.
  • Image Quality Enhancement — ABBYY Scan Station provides a wide range of tools for image correction. For example, a user can crop, rotate the image, redact sensitive information on it, remove noise and invert the colors to improve the look of the document image before saving. These tools also help to ensure better recognition results if the scanned documents are intended for processing by Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software.
  • Compatibility with a Variety of Scanning Devices — ABBYY Scan Station supports most of the scanners with TWAIN, ISIS and WIA interfaces.
  • Flexible Export and Saving Options — Scanned images can be saved to PDF, TIFF, JPEG, JPEG2000, BMP, PNG, PCX and DCX formats and exported to folders and FTP folders. This allows users to easily transfer scanned documents to electronic archives, Enterprise Content Management and Document Management Systems or export them to ABBYY Recognition Server or ABBYY FlexiCapture for further processing.
  • Single Scanning Interface – It is a common practice to use different scanner models within one company. ABBYY Scan Station allows using the same settings regardless of the scanner type. This makes it an essential tool for creating a common electronic archive.
