A brief intro (and a non-technical differentiation) on FlexiCapture and FineReader
ABBYY FlexiCapture - Smart Data Capture from structured or semi-structured documents like invoices, purchase orders or even application forms (banks, credit cards, you name it)
ABBYY FineReader - High Volume Document Conversion.
While FineReader focuses on just converting hand-printed/scanned documents into editable text for word or PDF files, FlexiCapture focuses on highly customisable and trainable document templates to extract structured data out of various documents.
So, if you deal with a lot of long, free-flowing text documents, FIneReader is the way to go.
FlexiCapture works for a scenario like - if you are dealing with documents where you need specific information, not the entire text transcribed for you (For example, find the label ‘Invoice Number’ and getting the data from the right or bottom of that label, or extracting line items of invoices whether or not they are separated by clearly marked lines, etc.)
I haven’t researched if UiPath integrates with FineReader. UiPath FlexiCapture activities are available and work alright.
