ABBYY Software and Fujitsu Canada Announce New Distribution Agreement

September 29, 2009

ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic software, has signed an agreement with Fujitsu Canada to distribute a full range of ABBYY products alongside Fujitsu Canada's complete line of document scanners including ABBYY FineReader®, FlexiCapture®, FormReader®, PDF Transformer™ and Recognition Server™. Currently, ABBYY's TouchTo optical character recognition (OCR) technology is integrated into the Fujitsu fi-6010N iScanner.


"With the growing demand to convert paper into searchable format, the combination of our industry leading scanners and ABBYY's award winning OCR software provides the perfect solution," said Steve Oblin, senior marketing manager, Imaging Products at Fujitsu Canada. "Initial feedback from our resellers has been very positive and several have already become certified on ABBYY's products."


The software products covered under the distribution agreement include:

  • ABBYY FineReader: Intelligent, professional level OCR software for creating editable and searchable files from scanned documents, PDF, and digital camera images.

  • ABBYY FlexiCapture: Enables organizations to efficiently automate business processes, dramatically minimize manual operations associated with document processing and data capture and increase overall productivity. FlexiCapture transforms information from various types of paper forms or documents into electronic data and transfer it to business applications and databases.

  • ABBYY PDF Transformer: Enables users to easily convert any type of PDF into editable formats with the original layout and formatting retained.

  • ABBYY Recognition Server: Robust and powerful server-based OCR solution for automating document conversion processes across corporate departments and enterprises. It is designed for mid- to high-volume OCR processing. ABBYY Recognition Server can be used as both a turnkey solution and an integral part of document capture, document management, and back-end systems.


"This new distributor agreement with Fujitsu Canada demonstrates ABBYY's increasing commitment to the Canadian market, and strengthens our longtime relationship with Fujitsu," said Steve Kincade, vice president of channels in North America at ABBYY USA. "Fujitsu Canada's nationwide reseller network and excellent market reputation for quality products and service will provide a solid platform from which to penetrate the Canadian market with ABBYY's market leading OCR solutions. This new relationship will also be instrumental in increasing the market profile and impact of a new line of integrated Fujitsu and ABBYY solutions- beginning with ABBYY's award winning TouchTo solution for the Fujitsu 6010N."
