November 27, 2012

Service Bureau Incorporates Powerful Enterprise Capture into Business Solutions


ABBYY®, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies and services, today announced it has won a large deal with e-docs UK of Herts, UK,  a leading business process outsourcer (BPO). e-docs UK have chosen to incorporate the award-winning ABBYY FlexiCapture technology into some of their business solutions offerings. 


e-docs UK are a service bureau specializing in financial applications, such as Accounts Payable and Invoice Automation. The first project into which they incorporated ABBYY FlexiCapture was for one of their main clients, a warehousing and distribution company that delivers primarily to the 4 largest supermarket chains in the UK. 


“ABBYY FlexiCapture met all the key technical requirements and the business case was impressive," says Colin Baterip, MD of e-docs UK. “Outsourcing allows companies to control their budgets and move fixed costs to variable costs. Another driver for outsourcing is the pace of technological change. Companies need to keep pace with technology to remain competitive and are being challenged to replace technology before it has been fully depreciated. With ABBYY FlexiCapture we can meet this need in the market.”


In choosing ABBYY FlexiCapture e-docs UK had 4 main criteria that had to be met: high quality OCR results; identification of multiple form types; web-based verification; and a price point that makes deals with clients profitable.  For the warehousing and distribution client e-docs UK are currently scanning circa 80,000 documents per week, from over 400 types of customers, and by using ABBYY FlexiCapture they were able to make savings of £37,000 p.a.


“We are happy to be working with e-docs UK and glad they have chosen ABBYY FlexiCapture,” says Ed MacArthur, Head of Sales, ABBYY UK Ltd.  “Outsource providers, such as e-docs UK, offer the best value to their clients by relieving them of the burdens of expensive capital investments and lowering the ongoing investment required in internal infrastructure.”
