Extremely valuable tool in fostering automation for my small-sized accounting firm

Reviewed on 2018/10/25

For anyone in the finance industry, it is now simply understood that numbers are no longer "crunched" by overworked accountants battling customer-driven deadlines. That is all gone by way of automation. The only hang-up to a seamless input into automation is the fact that much of it still is stored as paper, believe it or not. My firm in particular made a push to start digitizing all of our records and in this process, I learned much about OCR technology. There are hundreds of products that say they can OCR, but the fact that ABBYY can process a HUGE variety of documents, fonts, etc. , this saves a lot of time correcting the output and actually getting searchable documents onto file storage. I just hope that this product continues to develop and remains at its reasonable price point.

Pros

It literally helped my firm save HUNDREDS of man-hours of data entry by running all of our scanned documents through ABBYY and relying heavily upon its OCR to produce a variety of formats which we were able to quickly cross verify and enter into the accounting software. In short, the quality and intelligence of their OCR engine is tremendously accurate and fast!

Cons

The licensing stuff is a little TOO strict and often the remote licensing procedure has to be manually restarted within WIndows Services. We eventually bought more licenses after realizing that ABBYY will be a critical component in my firm's efforts to digitize all of our records and hard copies onto our cloud-hosted server. However, for a very small business that may not warrant another license purchase, they will quickly find out that ABBYY is quick to detect multiple sessions of the same serial code and will block both out. A little excessive, but I can understand their strict use and protection of this fine product.

Best ocr for archival historical documents, but not perfect

Reviewed on 2024/05/22

Good, but wish the ocr were were even better, and correctable.

Good, but wish the ocr were were even better, and correctable.

Pros

Does better than Adobe in ocr-ing messy archival documents for historical research. Still not perfect, though. Don't expect very great accuracy.

Cons

There's no way to correct ocr mistakes like you can in Adobe acrobat.

Its use is great but I don't understand why it doesn't stay current after I had it paid for this year. Not really happy about this.

Pros

I like the image copy and paste as the images are significantly better than Adobe Acrobat Pro, I like the conversion to a different format. I like the OCR repair of scanned pdf very much also.

Cons

Getting it re-upped. I have paid for the fee and have a receipt but still it isn't done. I now have a diminished service that is of no help to me. I and the University have contacted ABBYY via email and message form.
