ABBYY FlexiCapture 12

ABBYY FlexiCapture is an intelligent platform for capturing meaningful data, relationships and insights from documents, forms and correspondence to improve business outcomes. It transforms documents into business value by capturing and validating information in any format at its point of need. Intelligently digitizing documents and automating document processes, FlexiCapture helps organizations remove risk and cost while accelerating revenue and drive competitive advantage every day.





ABBYY FlexiCapture automatically processes all types of documents from files and scanners in a single flow, including office documents and image formats, email attachments and message bodies. Digitally born office documents can be processed with:

  • Microsoft Office if it is installed, its use is allowed in the settings, and a valid login and password have been provided.
  • LibreOffice if it is installed and its use is allowed in the settings.
  • The built-in converter if none of the above can be used.


The neural-based automatic document classification technology enables sorting of documents by content, visual forms, types (e.g. driver license, bank statement, tax form, contract, invoice, etc.) and custom subcategories (e.g. invoices from vendor A, invoices from vendor B, etc.)

It learns quickly and easily, enabling it to perform as an autoclassifier – just provide a set of sample documents (no fewer than 10 documents of each type) and specify reference classes for each document in the set. Not only does it define a document type, but also selects a correct document definition for further content processing.
For many real-life scenarios, the precision/recall ratio can be adjusted easily: simply prioritize either or precision, or use the “balanced” mode.


At the recognition stage, document images are assembled into multi-page documents or document sets. Their content and data are intelligently extracted and validated automatically in an unattended mode.

Automatic assembly: multi-page documents out of pages

This task can be done either by separators (e.g. blank pages inserted between the two documents), page counters, or with the help of ABBYY neural-based classification algorithms that automatically identify.

Document sets

ABBYY FlexiCapture runs consistency checks to ensure all case-related documents are assembled correctly into a full document set. For a case management scenario, it enables comparison of:

  • Key fields, seals, photos or signatures of different documents by displaying their main fields on the same сase.
  • Relevant data inside company’s databases against extracted data.

Highly accurate OCR/ICR/OMR and barcode recognition incorporating:

  • Optical character recognition of printed text in up to 190 languages.
  • Intelligent character recognition for hand-printed text in over 110 languages.
  • Barcode recognition for a variety of 1D and 2D barcodes.
  • Optical mark recognition for a wide range of checkmarks.

Automatic validation includes:

  • Comparison against databases.
  • Conformity with built-in validation rules.
  • Compliance with formats.
  • Data normalization.
  • User-defined checks.


Verification station allows checking if extracted fields match those of the original document. Alternatively, verification can be started manually using the web-based verification station, easily accessible to a verification operator from any physical location. Any of the following techniques can be used:

Group verification

Group verification allows verifying the similar checkmarks or digits across batch of documents by displaying all discovered versions in a single Verification window.

Field verification

Field verification mode enables automatic checking of data fields one by one, or the characters in a field.

Verification in document window

Recognized data fields can be viewed simultaneously and compared against the original document image. Poorly recognized characters (e.g. handwritten text or notes) can be typed manually into the fields. A web verification station deployed on a third-party system can be accessed via single sign-on technology (using SAML 2.0). Users interact with the integrated web verification station the same way they interact with a non-integrated station.


ABBYY FlexiCapture automatically exports recognized data to different file formats, or to databases, systems of record and other destination points in line with user-defined rules:

  • Corporate file storage repositories – SharePoint, Laserfiche, etc.
  • ODBC compatible databases – Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft Access.
  • RPA, BPM, ECM, ERP and CRM systems.
  • Smooth integration with RPA workflows to make your robots smarter.

Exporting document sets

  • Document set images can be exported to one PDF file or placed in a storage location. A file or database record should describe the structure of the document set and contain a link to each document image.
  • Document set fields (including fields in child documents) can be exported to ODBS databases and files. All fields in child documents are available when setting up an export; you can set up mapping and redact sensitive information both in a document section and in linked documents.
