MILPITAS, Calif., and LAWRENCE, Mich., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- ABBYY®, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic software and professional services, today announced a partnership with UFC, Inc. to deliver robust and flexible data capture and document processing capabilities to its MuWave Forms Pro solution. Leveraging ABBYY's intelligent FlexiCapture Engine 10, UFC allows organizations across industries to streamline paper-based processes. With FlexiCapture Engine 10 integration, UFC has experienced immediate success solving the data capture and analysis issues for many of the Fortune 500 companies in the oil and gas sector.

"Prior to our use of ABBYY FlexiCapture Engine, our clients were challenged with accurately indexing scanned documents and were further hampered by poor Internet connectivity in their widely distributed geographical locations," said Jim Hill, UFC's lead solutions specialist. "With ABBYY's powerful data capture technology we are able to provide our clients with outstanding speed and accuracy through a single web-based interface for scanning and indexing of large volumes of documents."

UFC's MuWave Forms Pro processing solution leverages ABBYY's FlexiCapture Engine 10 Software Development Kit (SDK) for enhanced data capture and document classification. The solution allows for the extraction of data from a broad base of document types, including those containing tabular data, and is able to merge data from tables breaking onto a second page.  The multi-threaded architecture takes maximum advantage of available server resources and operates seamlessly in a virtual machine environment.  With the combined ABBYY and UFC solution, organizations across industries simplify time consuming and labor-intensive document processing tasks. This results in the elimination of manual indexing of documents, and the automatic extraction of critical data contained within them. The greatly increased efficiency through ABBYY's automation of paper-based processes provides a rapid ROI.

"Paper-based processes remain a challenge for organizations of all sizes. Together with our partners, we are focused on providing the most accurate solutions to the industry that will improve our customer's operational efficiency by streamlining mundane paper-based processes," said Jim Kano, vice president of sales, business development group at ABBYY USA. "We are pleased to have formed a mutually beneficial relationship with UFC, in which we are enhancing customer productivity."
