How it works

ABBYY FineReader Server receives document images from storage folders, multifunction printers, scanners, or e-mails and uses optical character recognition (OCR) technology to automatically convert them into compressed, searchable digital formats.

If needed, the user and the system can add metadata to the document and the user can manually correct text information. The service can run around the clock or process documents in batches on a scheduled basis to optimize use of hardware resources. The resulting digitized files can be saved to any number of storage areas and/or delivered to other applications.
