- Automation of paper form data entry through OCR and RPA

TOKYO, Jan 9, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - As of Jan. 9, 2020, KDDI has become a recognized partner of ABBYY Japan (Headquarters: Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture; President & CEO: Yo Ohara; hereafter "ABBYY") and begun offering for sale "FlexiCapture(R)" and other OCR[1]-related ABBYY products in Asia, North America, Europe and Australia.

Using FlexiCapture(R) and the UiPath RPA platform together

ABBYY is a global leading company in the field of OCR-related software. It has local offices in 11 countries and provides service in over 200. ABBYY's product "FlexiCapture(R)" is an intelligent platform that can recognize with high accuracy the text on paper documents in a variety of formats and languages and extract specific data fields from it.

Furthermore, FlexiCapture can be used in combination with RPA[2] to automate an entire process, from scanning the text of paper documents to inputting that data to a database. Such automation can reduce manual workload for many tasks such as categorization of scanned data, confirmation of its contents, and input of the data. KDDI offers both FlexiCapture and the UiPath RPA platform[3] to boost customers' efficiency effort, and together with solving automation challenges, supports customers in making their digital transformation (DX).
