ABBYY Selected by KMWorld for Fourth Straight Trend Setting Product Award

ABBYY TouchTo Technology Recognized on Publication’s 2009 Product List

MILPITAS, CALIF., August 27, 2009 — ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic software, today announced that its TouchTo technology has been recognized by KMWorld Magazine as a Trend-Setting Product of the Year for 2009. This year’s designation to this prominent industry award list marks the fourth consecutive year that an ABBYY solution has been selected by KMWorld Magazine.

“The products comprising the Trend-Setting Products list each year represent the year’s top solutions from companies at the forefront of innovation in the knowledge management industry,” said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld Magazine editor-in-chief. “ABBYY products continue to drive innovation year-in and year-out, making them a well-deserving member of our list.”

Beginning in 2003, the publication’s Trend-Setting Products list is developed through judging conducted by the KMWorld Magazine editorial team, analysts, system integrators, vendors and end users on the year’s newest solutions. This year’s list saw more than 800 products submitted, with those selected for their clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs.

ABBYY’s TouchTo technology, an add-on module to the Fujitsu fi-6010N office scanner, provides small to medium-sized businesses with an immediate return on investment (ROI) through streamlined processes and unsurpassed optical character recognition accuracy. The scanner uses a built in LCD display and the TouchTo solution to allow individuals to easily capture data, route documents to business applications, populate databases, and send and share critical business information, all with the touch of a finger.

“KMWorld’s selection of ABBYY for this award four years in a row further underscores the company’s leadership position in the document conversion and data capture space,“ said Dean Tang, CEO of ABBYY USA. “Our TouchTo technology is the latest in a long line of innovation from ABBYY, and delivers powerful data capture capabilities to businesses looking to transition away from paper heavy environments.”
