ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK

Integrated easily via Web API

OCR as a cloud service for your applications.

Online OCR Service for your applications. Flexible and easy to integrate

ABBYY's Cloud OCR SDK is a Web OCR service providing the excellent quality of ABBYY’s text recognition via an application programming interface (API). Developers who prefer integrating an external OCR service to a locally installed text recognition toolkit will appreciate this highly scalable image conversion service.


The reliable OCR and document conversion service is running on the Microsoft® Azure infrastructure and can be integrated into own applications via a Web API. Regular certifications, security and reliability tests together with the option to process documents either within the European Union or within the United States of America assure highest security of data and compliance with the relevant data protection laws.

Scenarios

ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK is ideal for the following document conversion scenarios:

On-premise to Cloud

Regardless of the platform, a locally installed application can easily convert scans and image PDFs using the ABBYY cloud service via an Internet connection. The information contained in such images is extracted by the service and sent back to the on-premise application.

Mobile to Cloud

Mobile apps can be extended with text recognition and business card recognition functionalities with only minimal increase of the app’s actual file size. The conversion of images into text that can be processed further is performed outside the application, using ABBYY Cloud service.

Cloud to Cloud

Existing Cloud offerings or other on-line services can be quickly and cost efficiently expanded with OCR and provide high-quality text recognition and document conversion functions. Images for conversion into readable text are sent from Cloud to Cloud.

What our customers say

"...we look at ABBYY based on their reputation for the highest quality OCR..."

An associated ISV who has used the ABBYY technology for many years recommended we look at ABBYY based on their reputation for the highest quality OCR. The ABBYY developer account was easy to set up and the portal provided all the required documentation and assistance in getting started, including a downloadable sample code. The pricing options suited us for PRONI Street Directories as it was a bulk process and we knew the exact number of documents that needed to be sent to ABBYY. ABBYY Cloud OCR has been a consistent win for us.
