Document Solutions Experts Have Demonstrated Success at Incorporating Enterprise Capture into Business Solutions


ABBYY UK Ltd., a leading provider of document recognition, data capture, and linguistic technologies, today announced Allan Webb, based in Gloucestershire, has joined the ABBYY European Solution Partner Programme.  Allan Webb now gains full access to ABBYY’s Data and Document Capture solutions which provide a wide range of features for the extraction of business-critical information from customer documents in various industry sectors such as government, defence and many others.


“As an organisation we made a strategic decision to adopt ABBYY’s enterprise capture solution in order to give us a competitive advantage in the market,” says Rory Lipington, operations director for Allan Webb. “Increasingly the Document Management Division of Allan Webb, , is providing software solutions in addition to bureau services and the data capture and document classification aspects of this are increasingly popular. We have used FlexiCapture on large data capture jobs for the Ministry of Defence, capturing technical data from hard copy information, and plan to use ABBYY’s software for other large projects in the future.”


ABBYY FlexiCapture enables Allan Webb to offer its clients a seamless and automated business process through their solutions. With capture solutions, business-critical processes can be fully automated, from the time documents enter an organisation to routing and booking in end-of-line business applications like ERP, SharePoint and various document management applications. Documents, such as invoices, orders or contracts, are scanned when received as post or recognised electronically in the case of emails or PDFs. Essential data is then captured, automatically entered into the backend application and the original is digitally archived for fast and easy retrieval. This level of automation removes several of the most time-consuming manual tasks involved in document processing. 


“Our channel of certified partners help us deliver powerful business solutions and applications to customers.  Allan Webb has demonstrated a proven track record in providing expert and high quality customer service and adding value through their end user solutions,” states Ed MacArthur, Head of UK & Ireland Sales for ABBYY UK Ltd.  “Customers need to rely on trusted advisers to help guide them through the available business technology options.  Allan Webb is such an adviser and we are therefore pleased to have them as a member of our European Solution Partner Programme.”
