FREMONT, Calif., June 23, 2007 – ABBYY USA, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic software, today announced that it will participate in LegalTech West 2008. The LegalTech events gather top professionals from law firms and legal departments nationally, delivering hands-on, practical information for improving law practice management through leading edge technology and innovative products.
Location: Los Angeles, California
Dates: June 26 - 27, 2008
Booth: ABBYY USA Booth #226
Venue: Los Angeles Convention Center
At the event, ABBYY will demonstrate the legal applications of FineReader 9.0, recently rated 4 out of 5 (VERY GOOD) stars by PC Magazine. A comprehensive and easy-to-use optical character recognition (OCR) and document conversion application, ABBYY FineReader readily transforms key legal documents including pleadings, motions and documents found during discovery, as well as scanned images, digital photographs of documents and PDF files into editable and searchable electronic files. FineReader provides a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to manual retyping, delivering precision accuracy in converting almost any type of document, including contracts, correspondence, transcripts, faxes, books, research papers and tables.
ABBYY will also showcase Recognition Server 2.0, a powerful server-based OCR product that supports the growing need for e-Discovery solutions with its integrated Bates Stamping support. According to a recent survey of corporate attorneys by Pike and Fischer, only seven percent of respondents feel that their companies are ready to meet the e-Discovery requirements of the recently updated Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). Recognition Server accurately and automatically converts large volumes of paper documents or document images into fully searchable electronic text for e-Discovery processes, equipping companies with the tools they need to better meet the new FRCP requirements.
