More accurate OCR

Brainware, a provider of intelligent data capture software, has deployed the eighth version of ABBYY FineReader Engine SDK, which offers optical character recognition (OCR) technology for conversion of scanned documents and images into text.

The agreement extends Brainware's integration with ABBYY software for OCR, which began with earlier versions of Brainware's offering, IDC-distiller.

Carl Mergele, Brainware CEO, says, "ABBYY's best-of-breed OCR technologies help our customers to fully leverage IDC-distiller for fast, accurate data extraction and document processing. By integrating ABBYY technologies within our product, we ensure that IDC-distiller maintains its competitive edge and provides unrivaled levels of extraction."

IDC-distiller captures data from image documents and other electronic formats and then exports that data to corporate software platforms--like SAP, Oracle, Peoplesoft and JD Edwards—or to such document management and archival systems as Documentum, FileNet Open Text and Stellent.

According to Brainware, with the FineReader Engine, its users will benefit from the following: enhanced OCR accuracy, fast mode recognition and image preprocessing for enhancing recognition.
