ABBYY is a global leading company in the field of OCR-related software. It has local offices in 11 countries and provides service in over 200. ABBYY's product "FlexiCapture(R)" is an intelligent platform that can recognize with high accuracy the text on paper documents in a variety of formats and languages and extract specific data fields from it.
