ABBYY announces Laserfiche ECM partnership

ABBYY, the provider of recognition, data capture and language-based text analytics technologies, has joined the Laserfiche Professional Developer Partnership (PDP) program. Laserfiche will integrate ABBYY’s FlexiCapture recognition and data capture software with its Enterprise Content Management (ECM) products.

ABBYY's advanced capture features such as classification, data extraction and validation as well as a higher level of automation for complex document types will be added to Laserfiche's ECM products.

ABBYY FlexiCapture document imaging and data extraction software automatically transforms documents of any structure, language or content into usable and accessible business-ready data. Intelligent self-learning classification and recognition technologies enable FlexiCapture to replace error-prone manual processes with automatic document classification and processing.

Additionally, ABBYY's capture configurations are optimised for specific business processes including:

  • ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices, which enables the automatic capture, validation and processing of incoming invoices, aligning closely with accounts payable workflows developed with Laserfiche; and
  • ABBYY FlexiCapture for Mailrooms, which delivers automatic document classification to support Laserfiche case management, contract management and human resource workflows.

Through its PDP program, Laserfiche provides out-of-the-box integrations with leading systems for enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), geographic information system (GIS) as well as ECM-related solutions.

“ABBYY Australia has been actively working with a number of local Laserfiche partners to deliver highly efficient and effective solutions for Accounts Payable as well as other manual data entry business process requirements for a number of years.  The now formalised global level of partnership will further enhance this engagement,” said Henry Patishman, Director of Sales at ABBYY Australia.

The first ABBYY-Laserfiche integrated products are expected to be in second quarter 2016, and sold through the Laserfiche global reseller channel.
