ABBYY USA and Fujitsu Strengthen Relationship With Launch of ABBYY's Partner Education Program


Fremont, Calif., April 26, 2006 – ABBYY USA today announced its new Partner Education program with the program's first document scanning affiliate, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. (FCPA). Fujitsu now offers ABBYY's recognition technology with its ScanSnap™ S500 document scanner. ABBYY's partner education program offers Fujitsu scanner dealers opportunities to expand its product offerings by pairing them with award-winning OCR and PDF conversion software.

ABBYY's Partner Education program signifies its expanded commitment to the company's hardware partners by helping them increase the cross-sell opportunities between its scanner products and ABBYY's software. A customized reseller kit will be available May 1, 2006. The program features product trainings, webinars and a not-for-resale package of either ABBYY FineReader Corporate Edition® or ABBYY PDF Transformer™, technical support resources, marketing collateral support, and lead referrals, among other benefits.

"With ABBYY's Partner Education program, we're showing dealers how they can instantly earn a 30 to 150 percent or more increase in dollar amount sales with our recognition and PDF conversion products," said Joe Budelli, Vice President of Business Development for ABBYY USA. "Not only do dealers gain, but they also provide a solution for the mainstream corporate environment and its growing reliance on scanned images of paper documents, thus meeting the increased demand for OCR in recognizing these documents.”

“Fujitsu is committed to providing customers total solutions, so this collaboration with ABBYY is a natural step toward making that imperative even more solid," said Scott Francis, director of product marketing, Imaging Products Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "With the specialized training provided in this Partner Education Program, our dealers will add much more value to our award-winning scanners and expand business opportunities in the document recognition and conversion segments.”
