Digital Document Archiving

Optimize your business processes with digitally archived documents.

Over time, important business documents such as letters, contracts, or project documentation can reach significant volumes and take up precious and expensive storage space, while manually searching for relevant data can consume an extraordinary amount of employees’ time. ABBYY helps organizations to save on facility costs, reduce working hours, and significantly speed up business processes by converting business documents into digital records that can be electronically archived, efficiently managed, and easily accessed.

Quick, “anywhere” access to digitally stored business documents

ABBYY automatically converts all correspondence, printed files, emails, office documents, and fax letters into digital documents such as MRC-compressed, searchable, and indexed PDFs or PDF/A-files. Suitable for long-term archiving, the files are small in size with high visual quality. They are easily readable on different electronic devices, easily accessible from remote locations, and can be centrally archived in digital libraries, electronic archives, or in document management systems.
