Nuance Communications, Inc. today announced that the analysts at independent testing lab BLI awarded OmniPage Server the Outstanding OCR Processing Platform for 2016. BLI recognized OmniPage Server for its many strengths that allow organizations to quickly and easily deploy OCR-based strategic workflows that enhance productivity and drive meaningful business results.

"Putting OCR processing within reach of just about any business process or application—without requiring a dedicated front-end capture/conversion product or a lot of custom coding—is a boon to companies that need to transform hardcopy and static electronic documents to editable text, but who don't want to disrupt the programs and process they currently have in place," said Jamie Bsales, Director, Office Workflow Solutions Analysis at BLI. "Best of all, this all-new platform employs the award-winning OmniPage OCR engine, which has consistently delivered unsurpassed recognition accuracy in BLI's tests, so organizations can have confidence in the data being delivered."

Announced in association with the new version of Nuance's Capture Software Development Kit (CSDK) in August 2016, OmniPage Server gives developers and business process owners a sophisticated new tool for high volume document conversion that can be run standalone as a complete solution or connected to business system applications for more comprehensive workflows. It is the ideal solution for organizations that want to quickly and easily create automated, watched folder conversion processes with minimal effort from their local IT.

"In developing OmniPage Server, Nuance recognized a growing need among organizations for a powerful and flexible capture solution easily managed and maintained by a typical IT staff," said Chris Strammiello, VP of global alliances and strategic marketing. "Through our CSDK solution, we are familiar with the myriad ways organizations customize capture technology and incorporate it into strategic workflows and innovative solutions. However, not every organization has the capabilities and resources to invest in a full SDK. To help those organizations the OmniPage Server is purpose built to enable Capture technology with minimal heavy lifting. We're gratified that in their award, BLI recognizes the capabilities of our solution and how organizations can use it to enhance their organization."
