ABBYY FlexiCapture Distributed Edition is a very flexible, smart, scalable solution for optical character recognition (OCR) and for the data capture from structured and unstructured documents. It allows you to implement any, even the most complex scenarios for automating business processes in companies of any size.
Nowadays, cloud and web technologies surround us everywhere, also helping to solve business problems. Therefore, in addition to classic desktop stations, ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 includes web stations that allow users to access data capture technology and OCR from anywhere in the world where there is an Internet connection. Web stations allow scanning and verification of documents, as well as monitoring the operation of the entire ABBYY FlexiCapture solution as a whole. Thus, using them, you can create a solution for online data capture, or cloud OCR services, available worldwide.
Next, let’s consider the functionality of each web station.
Web Scanning Station
This web station is designed to scan paper documents and then send them to the ABBYY FlexiCapture processing server. The station also allows you to download images of documents from your device and put them into batches before being sent to the processing server.
Web Verification Station
This station provides almost full functionality of the desktop verification station. It is designed to verify the correctness of data recognition and documents assembly, and also check results of rule execution.
Web Capture Station
Web Capture Station combines the functionality of the two previous stations, allowing the user to perform scanning and subsequent verification of documents.
Administration and Monitoring Station
A web station is used to control the ABBYY FlexiCapture as a whole solution, as well as to monitor the productivity of the complex and operators.
All stations are available via links from the ABBYY FlexiCapture main page https://[YOUR_SERVER]/flexicapture12/. In the URL, replace [YOUR_SERVER] with:
• localhost – if you are accessing the website locally on the server
• server-network-name-or-server-ip-address – if you are accessing the network (if IP is accessible externally)
ABBYY FlexiCapture Web Stations allow you to make your solution even more scalable. Turn your ABBYY Flexi Capture into an online data capture solution, or provide your customers a cloud OCR service.
