Participation in the Development of Scan2IT for Océ

ATAPY served as a subcontractor on this project conducted by our long-term partner EasyData  B. V. — a company that provides state-of-the-art document management and data input solutions for thebDutch market.

Oce logoMerging together the exceptional power of ABBYY FineReader and the experience of ATAPY's engineers, EasyData provides Dutch companies with made-to-order, yet affordable, software applications. Among EasyData's customers is Océ, one of the world's leaders in hardware and software for document processing. Our cooperation began with a relatively simple ‘Océ Document Interpreter’ application that detected separator pages within the incoming image stream and split the stream into multi-page documents. Stability, short development time, and the low cost of this initial application led Océ to order additional features, such as barcode search, logging, empty page detection and many others. Another application, called FineRead, packs the power of ABBYY's OCR technologies into a silent ‘image gobbler’, working as an NT service program and monitoring selected folders for new images. Incoming images are recognized and exported according to a sophisticated set of instructions composed by the user. Merged together, these two applications formed the basis for Scan2IT (‘Scan to Intelligent Text’) — a complex image processing system now offered by Océ offices around the world.
