March 4, 2010

ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and language software, today announced the opening of its 10th office, ABBYY 3A, with “3A” indicating three continents — Asia, Africa and South America. The new branch office is focused on developing the company’s business in these three regions notable for rapidly growing economies. Although ABBYY 3A begins operation in 2010, its team has been building a centralized partner network in the area for over 6 years.


The ABBYY 3A team consists of various professionals including sales managers, marketing, technical personnel, and specialists developing partner relations and programs. The team is led by Elena Pospelova, CEO of ABBYY 3A, who joined ABBYY in 2001. In her former position as the Head of International Sales Department, Elena turned ABBYY’s business in Asia, Africa and South America into one of the top revenue-generating directions.


“Our approach is based on mutually beneficial partnership with local companies”, said Elena Pospelova. “We treat each our partner individually, building unique relations that resonate with the partner's particular needs and experience, as well as with cultural and technological background of the country. ABBYY’s strategy on the local markets is to complete, not compete — by supplementing the existing business process automation solutions with new, powerful technologies and multiple language support.”


Among ABBYY 3A’s partners are recognized leaders in the industry such as Samsung, Avision, Fujitsu, LG, and Huawei. Thanks to the professionalism and expertise of local integrators, ABBYY technologies have been successfully implemented in a variety of country-wide document processing projects and governmental institutions including Brazilian Federal Tax Department, Brazilian Central Bank, Indian Ministry of Defense, Indian Primary Education Programm, Revenue Department of Thai, Thai Ministry of Agricultural Economics and more.


Technologies and products that are provided to the markets include award-winning ABBYY FineReader family of OCR (optical character recognition) products for developers, businesses and consumers, ABBYY FlexiCapture solutions for data and document capture, mobile OCR technologies and applications, and ABBYY Lingvo dictionary software. In addition, ABBYY 3A specialists analyze the potential and applicability of ABBYY technologies in various industries of the region and propose innovative vertical solutions supported by educational materials, partner programs and seminars.


The new office is located in Moscow, Russia, having the same address as that of ABBYY Headquarters. The main phone number is +7 (495) 783 3700, the fax number is +7 (495) 783 2663, and the general email address is
