Partnership will Broaden Document Recognition Technologies and Linguistic Software in the United Kingdom and Ireland

“We are very happy to work closely with ABBYY to further extend their success in the UK market. We will increase awareness in the UK channel and work with them to improve services to resellers,” said Skye Quin, Sales and Marketing Director of QBS Distribution.


“Our products allow people to access information contained in paper, scans and PDFs. Both individuals and large enterprises can benefit from the increased productivity and reduced costs that result from using ABBYY products,” explains Dave Evans, Sales Director for ABBYY UK. “QBSD have a proven track record in the retail distribution market and we are incredibly happy to be teaming up with them. Their strong relationships will help bring ABBYY products to new customers and markets.”


ABBYY's recognition technologies and products help individuals and organizations to manage an increasing amount of information. They deliver powerful instruments that enable people to unlock information from paper and images, acquire data automatically and process and store valuable information. Recognition products enable companies to save money and effort typically spent on manual retyping and formatting of documents, and to benefit from the ability to access information in more efficient ways. ABBYY’s linguistic products help to break down language barriers, facilitating easier and clearer communication.
