Blue Prism and ABBYY Integrate Optical Character Recognition Capabilities with Enterprise-Grade Robotic Process Automation
Blue Prism a provider of robotic process automation (RPA) solutions, and ABBYY, a provider of content intelligence solutions and services, have formed a strategic partnership to integrate ABBYY’s FlexiCapture solution with Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce—automating the process of turning unstructured content into structured, actionable data for enterprise users.
According to the vendors, ABBYY FlexiCapture focuses on the document, applying such artificial intelligence (AI) technologies as optical character recognition (OCR), and machine learning technologies to identify and classify content and extract data, while continuously learning from human input. ABBYY’s data extraction process includes support for recognizing machine print, hand print, barcodes, and checkmarks.
Blue Prism complements the workplace with an elastic, multi-faceted and multi-talented digital workforce, helping organizations automate and scale business processes via AI, machine learning, intelligent automation and sentiment analysis. This workforce eliminates vendor lock-in by providing access to best-of-breed AI technologies and Intelligent Automation skills through a Technology Alliance Program (TAP), helping transform how organizations use technology to achieve true operational agility.
ABBYY’s FlexiCapture content intelligence solution allows enterprises to access, extract, and validate data from disparate documents—including purchase orders, invoices, applications, bills of lading, and more—and use it within other business processes. The integration with Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce automates those processes—and gives enterprises better analysis of content for better performance and document process transparency, contributing to improved customer experiences. In addition, ABBYY adds machine learning technologies that help Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce intelligently learn and improve over time—along with the added benefits of better operational agility and increasingly efficient processes.
With this integration Blue Prism customers can also take advantage of ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices—a business-ready invoice solution built on top of FlexiCapture that’s pre-built with all the business logic and learning capabilities required for processing invoices and automating the capture of invoice data. With FlexiCapture for Invoices, organizations can dramatically increase the productivity of accounts payable processes, while lowering costs.
