          ABBYY, a company specialized in document recognition, data capture and linguistic software, released FlexiCapture Engine 8.0. The new solution is a software development kit (SDK) for integrating data and document capture technologies in Windows-based applications.

           The product provides tools for processing forms, semi-structured and unstructured documents, data verification, document classification, and export for backend processing and archiving in a single developer environment.
            FlexiCapture Engine 8.0 is an instrument for developing vertical solutions intended for processing invoices, medical forms, insurance applications, examination tests, ID cards and others. It is also intended for creating customized data capture applications for different scanning devices and terminals. The SDK can also be used for high-load projects or integrated into enterprise management and workflow systems, as it enables the processing of all document types in a single stream.
           The product provides a set of recognition technologies including Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) for hand-printed text, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for printed text, barcode recognition, Optical Mark Recognition (OMR), and PDF conversion. FlexiCapture technology is also included which makes it suitable for processing semi-structured and unstructured documents such as invoices, price lists, contracts and other similar documents. ABBYY FlexiCapture Engine 8.0 can index documents with relevant data and convert them to PDF and PDF/A formats. The SDK features a  base of more than 180 languages for OCR and over 110 languages for ICR.
         More information about the SDK is available at http://www.abbyy.com/flexicapture_engine
