ABBYY and windream Announce Strategic Cooperation

 

Bochum and Munich, 8 February 2012 – The Bochum-based ECM vendor windream and ABBYY Europe, a leader in document conversion and data capture, have agreed to engage in a strategic partnership. The aim of this cooperation is to integrate software products from ABBYY into the ECM system from windream. With ABBYY, windream has chosen to partner with a technology leader in this sector and an internationally-known supplier and developer of optical character recognition (OCR) and data capture solutions.

 

In windream’s ECM product portfolio ABBYY’s products are mainly used as scanning applications and server-based OCR tools for full-page text extraction and for automatic extraction of specific metadata from documents.

 

Windream will integrate OCR products from ABBYY, including ABBYY FineReader Engine and ABBYY Recognition Server, into the windream ECM. This will enable windream to better serve its enterprise customers with a solution for scanning paper-based documents, capturing and filing them in an ECM system and automatically indexing them.

 

Windream will also deploy ABBYY FlexiCapture, a powerful solution for the accurate extraction of data from a wide variety of documents. With the extracted data any kind of document, whether in paper or digital archives, becomes instantly searchable and retrievable. Within an ECM environment the information or the content extracted from documents as full text and metadata can be processed by windream and used for document retrieval.

 

Furthermore, in the future ABBYY solutions will be integrated into windream’s bizhub-connect software. This solution was developed by windream specifically for the bizhub MFPs from its partner Konica Minolta. This solution seamlessly connects the windream ECM system with Konica Minolta’s bizhub.

 

Both ABBYY and windream will continue to work closely in the future with the goal of collaborating on IT projects in the ECM sector.
