Valuevad has announced a new distribution agreement for the region. The value-added imaging and storage specialist has been appointed as Middle East and Africa distributor for ABBYY, a linguistic software specialist.

ABBYY, headquartered in Russia, specialises in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR), semantics, linguistics and electronic lexicography. Among the products now available from Valuevad is FineReader, an award winning system for automatic input of texts, tables and forms into a computer.

“We are excited to launch ABBYY in these markets with Valuevad as our regional distributor, especially now since ABBYY is gaining momentum through awards world-wide in the OCR market,” said Jupp Stoepetie, CEO, European Headquarters, ABBYY. “We are delighted with the service and support Valuevad provides to their resellers for the products they distribute, and since they are authorised Kofax Ascent Capture distributors, ABBYY’s FineReader OCR and ICR custom modules for Ascent Capture would serve as an ideal value-added tool to Ascent.”

Lars Bogvad Jeppensen, managing director, Valuevad, commented: “The name ABBYY is synonymous with OCR. We are happy to have ABBYY in our focused product portfolio, especially with Kofax Ascent capture, for which we have many successful installations all over Middle East. ABBYY’s Finereader custom modules represents the very best example of how a third-party can leverage the open-platform architecture of Ascent Capture to deliver complimentary features to users without programming. The added capabilities of PDF output and extensive recognition language support are also commendable.”
