MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ABBYY®, a leading provider of document recognition, document capture, and linguistic technologies and professional services, discussed current challenges and future prospects for automating and accelerating document-centric processes at its recent second annual ABBYY Technology Summit. The two-day event in San Diego, Calif. was an opportunity to strengthen partnerships, provide technology updates and educate attendees with an in-depth overview of the current state of enterprise document, data and information management practices. The sessions were designed to provide insight into various emerging use cases for capture and document process automation technology aimed at helping organizations to collect, structure and understand information.
"The paperless workplace has been a topic of discussion within enterprises for more than a decade. Paper-based manual processes are slow, error prone, and costly. However, many businesses continue to struggle with making a full transition not because they don't have an efficient way for doing so, but because the use cases can be hard to visualize," said Peter Meechan, COO at ABBYY North American Headquarters. "ABBYY aims to change that with a focus on enabling organizations to collect, process, and make sense of information regardless of its original format. Automating business processes accelerates transactions, delivers more actionable and insightful data, and reduces costs."
Sponsored by ABBYY partners Fujitsu, Docuware, Epson, and ConcordFax, the two-day ABBYY Technology Summit included a full agenda of software development kit (SDK) sessions, application sessions and technical labs. During the ABBYY Technology Summit users were shown how language-based, data capture and recognition technologies can be used to streamline and automate information sharing and data analysis to promote better, more-informed business decisions.
"According to a survey we conducted, 50 percent of companies are nowhere near digitized," said John Mancini, president and CEO at AIIM. "It's an area of opportunity that is only becoming more acute as more and more information is generated. Businesses need to understand how one document and its data can affect multiple processes and departments, otherwise they run the risk of falling behind or making decisions without taking all of the information into account."
