Technology Partnership Integrates Intelligent Data Capture and Enterprise Content Management Systems

FREMONT and COSTA MESA, Calif., Dec. 5, 2007 – ABBYY, a world leader in the development of document recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies, and Liberty IMS, a leading software provider for the enterprise content management industry, today announced they have formalized a strategic partnership to integrate and promote their respective solutions. Through this partnership, the companies have created seamless integration between ABBYY FlexiCapture and LibertyNET, enabling users to scan and intelligently extract data from forms or documents, such as invoices or contracts, and automatically export images with metadata into LibertyNET. The combined solution uses captured images with metadata from FlexiCapture to drive LibertyNET workflows and other LibertyNET Application Builder (LAB) services.

 “Through the partnership with ABBYY, our customers gain the benefit of a complete solution for combining intelligent capture with the full family of flexible, easily deployed LibertyNET Application Builder services,” said Liberty IMS CEO Lloyd Warman. “Our channel partners and customers can deliver best of breed solutions for a wide range of horizontal and vertical applications using this combined solution.”

In a single platform, LibertyNET provides capabilities for electronic document management, records management, process automation, workflow, digital asset management, COLD/ERM, e-forms, e-mail management and more.
