Effective Scanning with ABBYY

To help make the most effective use of scanned documents, ABBYY provides powerful and capable software to take digital documents to the next step.

Who are ABBYY?

ABBYY are a leading provider of technologies and services for document recognition, data capture and linguistics. They develop market-leading Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and text recognition software for the quick and easy conversion of scanned paper documents, PDFs and digital images – turning them into editable, searchable information.

What is OCR?

Optical Character Recognition is the electronic translation of scanned documents into editable, searchable text. This allows you to access the information trapped in an otherwise static document and integrate it into business specific software, such as accounting or logistics programmes.

How can this help my business?

Text recognition (OCR) software enables organisations to work with scanned documents in a business centric way, making them:


  • Remove confidential information before sharing scanned documents.
  • Update existing documents.
  • Annotate documents with comments, minute meetings or mark up for amends.


  • Quickly and easily search for documents using key words or relevant content.
  • Organise and file for instant retrieval.
