ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and language software, today announced the availability of ABBYY FineReader 10 Corporate Edition, the newest version of its optical character recognition (OCR) software for small- and medium-sized businesses. In addition to all the functions and technologies available in ABBYY FineReader 10 Professional Edition, this corporate-level version provides an array of powerful workgroup and networking capabilities. It allows businesses to easily add OCR functionality to every computer in the office, saving employee’s time spent on labor-intensive routines when working with documents, and to streamline document conversion, digitization and archiving processes.
ABBYY FineReader 10 Corporate Edition comes with concurrent licenses that can be shared among several users providing significant savings to organizations. It ensures automated installation from the server onto several or all workstations within the local network and provides support for multiple network MFPs. This version also delivers a special Hot Folder tool that automatically “watches” folders, subfolders and mailbox folders in the corporate network and sends the located documents for processing according to predefined rules. By delivering the ability to set up processing time for each task, it allows customers to efficiently use their hardware resources — for example, they can schedule the most intensive tasks to be performed during night hours or weekends. In addition, Corporate Edition provides the ability to distribute different steps of the OCR process between several stations in a network and therefore, to divide the workload between several users when converting large amounts of documents.
FineReader 10 Corporate Edition is based on ABBYY’s latest recognition technologies that bring OCR beyond traditional text recognition. With the second-generation ABBYY ADRT® (Adaptive Document Recognition Technology), it can intelligently re-create the logical structure of multi-page documents and accurately reproduce even the most complex formatting attributes such as hierarchical heading structures and table of contents. This makes the output multi-page files as easily editable as native Microsoft® Office files. With significantly enhanced ABBYY Camera OCR technology, the product expands the traditional ways of acquiring images for recognition from scanners and standard digital cameras to mobile phone cameras. For more efficient document sharing and to save valuable storage space, FineReader’s advanced MRC compression technology optimizes the size of output PDF files, reducing it up to 10 times while preserving visual quality. FineReader 10 Corporate Edition also allows saving of converted documents directly to Microsoft SharePoint® libraries in supported electronic formats.
The combination of innovative technologies, powerful workgroup features and intuitive, task-oriented interface brings greater efficiency to all document processing scenarios and makes ABBYY FineReader 10 Corporate Edition the ideal solution for modern office environments.
ABBYY FineReader 10 Corporate Edition is available for purchase through ABBYY’s online store and partner outlets worldwide. For more information about the product, please visit http://finereader.abbyy.com.
