Crimson Further Distinguishes its Portfolio with Data Capture Product Certification Status


ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic software, today announced that Crimson UK Ltd of Lancashire and Dingwall, is now an ABBYY FlexiCapture 9.0 Certified Partner. Crimson has demonstrated expertise with ABBYY technology and an ability to work with customers to meet their data capture needs. Crimson joins a network of highly skilled resellers and integrators who can provide data capture solutions based on ABBYY technology as part of the Certified Partner programme.


ABBYY FlexiCapture is an intelligent solution for capturing data from forms and other types of documents for input into databases and other back end systems. With its powerful algorithm for intelligent document classification and selective processing approach, ABBYY FlexiCapture is capable of finding and extracting key fields of information, even if the location of the field varies from page to page. As a result, FlexiCapture can be used as a single entry point for all kinds of paper documents including: forms (questionnaires, tests, insurance forms, tax returns, etc.), semi-structured documents (invoices, purchase orders, waybills, etc.) and unstructured documents (letters, contracts, articles, etc.).


“ABBYY’s FlexiCapture gives us the tools to offer forms processing solutions for a multitude of applications and document types, whether structured or unstructured,” commented Business Development Director, Alastair Galbraith. “Our clients are looking for innovative ways to capture data quickly and accurately from paper documents, rather than continue with traditional document scanning and manual data entry. Crimson has the expertise to scope and install onsite solutions for clients who need to scan and capture data from incoming documents in real-time. Having ABBYY as a partner is key to Crimson’s philosophy of being a one-stop shop for in-house or outsourced document solutions.”


ABBYY FlexiCapture Certified Partners receive a valuable set of benefits including access to training and technical assistance, as well as support for marketing activities, all of which gives them a true competitive advantage. ABBYY’s document and data capture software products such as FlexiCapture enable organizations to efficiently automate business processes, dramatically minimize manual operations associated with document processing and data capture and increase overall productivity. Easy-to-deploy, cost-effective yet powerful solutions from ABBYY are designed to meet document processing needs in a variety of industries including government, banking, insurance, education, healthcare, accounting, legal and many more.


“Crimson are true professionals whose skill levels will help us bring our Data Capture technologies to new customers in the UK market,” explained Regional Sales Director for the UK and Ireland Dave Evans. “Our partnerships are essential because businesses are constantly searching for advanced technology solutions and companies who are able to successfully implement those solutions. We are very pleased to say that Crimson fits this mould and we have the utmost confidence they will successfully represent and deploy ABBYY FlexiCapture 9.0 in the marketplace.”
