Nov 14, 2007 (08:11 AM EST)


FREMONT, Calif. and STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- ABBYY USA, a leading provider of recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies, and DYMO, an industry leader in on-demand labeling, today announced that they have partnered to integrate the ABBYY FineReader Engine with DYMO File(TM) software to provide seamless document recognition, document conversion and data capture capabilities within the product.

"The integration of ABBYY FineReader OCR technology with DYMO File(TM) software delivers the high-end advantages of a digital filing system with such simplicity that allows users to scan, OCR and file multiple documents all in one step," said Dean Tang, president and chief executive officer of ABBYY USA. "Because the OCR is so accurate, it is transparent to users who simply scan on a network scanner or digital copier without any additional steps. The combined solution automatically converts the documents to searchable and re-usable formats and places them in the appropriate file folders."

ABBYY FineReader adds value and increases opportunities for its technology and channel partners. By integrating ABBYY's FineReader engine, DYMO File(TM) delivers state-of-the-art technology for document recognition and conversion. Now, highly accurate document scanning, recognition and conversion to searchable PDF, Microsoft(R) Word or Excel files is within the reach of all businesses, not just large enterprises. The system provides a powerful new way to file documents digitally. Unlike other desktop scanning applications that are designed specifically for "one-off" scanning, DYMO File(TM) is designed specifically for scanning multiple documents at one time and streamlines the digital filing process. The product is particularly valuable for real estate, accounting, financial, legal, and medical offices where managing contracts, forms and agreements is common, and accuracy is critical.

"DYMO File(TM) software enables small and medium businesses to transform their paper documents into organized archives of electronic files using equipment they may already have in place," said Jeremy Petty, business development manager at DYMO. "We selected ABBYY's recognition and conversion technology because we feel it produces the most accurate and reliable results, enabling our customers to file, search and edit their documents with confidence."
