ABBYY FineReader 15 speeds first step of digital transformation journey
ABBYY, a provider of AI-based technologies and solutions for getting insight from business content and processes, has released ABBYY FineReader 15, an enhanced PDF application for Windows that allows users to manage any kind of document in the digital workplace.
With billions of scanned and digitally-born PDF documents opened every year, information workers in SMBs and enterprises require a productivity tool that makes working with any type of PDF simple and efficient. Powered by ABBYY’s AI-based text recognition technology, the new FineReader 15 has enables paragraph-level editing and layout adjustment in both digital and scanned PDFs, offers improvements in text recognition and documents comparison quality, faster viewing, and supports easy deployment with modern virtualization solutions.
According to ABBYY, FineReader 15 makes editing PDFs almost as easy as DOCX documents. Text flows smoothly from line to line, while paragraphs and pictures can be rearranged to adjust the overall layout.
FineReader 15 also offers more precise analysis and conversion of tables, better automatic tagging for PDF and PDF/UA creation, and better detection of headers and footers. The application also offers intelligent detection of text-layer quality for digitally created PDFs allowing for more accurate results when converting digital PDFs into editable formats or comparing documents.
Additionally, it delivers up to 55% faster PDF document viewing and opening as well as even higher OCR accuracy. There is up to 98% overall accuracy for Korean and Chinese, and up to 97% for Japanese.
ABBYY FineReader 15 offers accessible tools to collaborate, edit, and reuse digital and paper documents efficiently, thus improving communication and performance in a digital workplace. To promote a digital working environment, the PDF application also addresses pain points from paper-based workflows such as highlighting, commenting, signing, stamping, redacting, comparing versions, collecting feedback and more.
“Digitizing documents is the first step in a company’s digital transformation journey, and PDF has become the standard format. However, even if paper documents are digitized, they are often not accessible or searchable,” said Slavena Hristova, director of product marketing at ABBYY. “FineReader gives workers the tools they need to truly incorporate both digital and paper documents into a unified workflow and overcome the pain points of working with PDF files."
FineReader 15 is available worldwide via the ABBYY online store and a wide network of reselling partners. The Standard and Corporate versions are available for individual use as well as in volume licensing options for organizations.
