in ASEAN, India and Hong Kong


Moscow, Russia, September 18, 2002 – ABBYY Software House, a technology leader in document recognition (OCR/ICR) and linguistic technologies, is establishing a partnership with Scientific Digital Business Pte Ltd., one of the leading IT-solutions distributors in ASEAN.

“I’m firmly convinced that it is the clients who will benefit the most from this partnership between ABBYY and SDB. With its unique technical expertise and customer knowledge of the South-East Asian and Pacific marketplace, SDB will help its clients to choose solutions that best meet their business needs. We are very proud that now SDB will also offer ABBYY’s OCR/ICR products and solutions to its clients, because ABBYY’s recognition technologies have been recognized as leaders in quality and performance both in Europe and in the USA”, - said Sergey Andreyev, CEO of ABBYY Software House.

Taking into account the positive dynamics of ABBYY products sales in the South-Asian region, ABBYY finds its cooperation with SDB very important. A well-known IT-solutions distributor, SDB has a deep knowledge of the South-Asian market and is in a good position to organize a strong distribution network for ABBYY’s software products and boost the sales in this region. ABBYY’s software packages such as ABBYY FormReader and FineReader 6.0 Engine are already used in the first joint project managed by SDB in Alexandria Hospital ( Singapore).

The successful projects already implemented by SDB offer very good prospects for ABBYY’s software products in the South-Asian market. Among SDB’s customers are Central Provident Funds (form processing project, 2001), Deutsche Bank in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, India, and Sri Lanka (cheque-clearing system), and Jurong Town Corporation (document management system for transactions archive).

For its successful work and development of the market, SDB has received such famous awards as Asia Computer Weekly (Dec. 2001), Technology Trail Blazer, and Asia Channel Award (Aug. 2000).

SDB believes that ABBYY’s advanced technologies will greatly increase the sales of recognition software and create new opportunities for many form-processing projects. SDB has appreciated the high quality and reasonable prices of ABBYY’s products, as well as their ease of use and excellent technical support.

"ABBYY’s product benefits are having a direct impact on the overall value of SDB’s proposals to our reseller channels, giving them an edge over their competition in terms of ease of use and scalability. ABBYY also offers a very powerful data capture module that they can integrate into their applications," said Wilson Chia, founder and managing director of Scientific Digital Business.
