It was a great technological and commercial engagement...

With its new ABBYY OCR capabilities, eggPlant advances beyond "image-based" to become a fully "visual" automation tool. It was a great technological and commercial engagement. We're very happy with the support received from ABBYY. The TestPlant team looks forward to identifying more common ground to collaborate with ABBYY.
