In this section we cover news, insights and trivia about Intelligent Document Processing (IDP), share interesting articles, upcoming webinars, events and more.

What we cover in this week’s recap:


ABBYY wins “Best IDP Solution”, Mindee wins “Best Handwriting Recognition Solution”, and Evolution AI wins “Best Machine Learning Company” in 2024 AI Breakthrough Awards IDP vendor ABBYY has announced that Vantage, its Intelligent Document Processing solution has won “Best IDP Solution” in the 2024 AI Breakthrough Awards. In the annual AI Breakthrough Awards, marketing intelligence organization AI Breakthrough recognizes the world’s most innovative companies, technologies and products in the AI industry. Steve Johansson, managing director at AI Breakthrough, explained why ABBYY Vantage was selected as the best IDP solution: “Vantage empowers developers and business users to easily train AI models for specific needs. Documents – from invoices to claims processing to logistics – are at the heart of businesses’ core processes. Relying on employees to manually enter this data is error-prone, inefficient, expensive, and can result in employee burnout, ultimately damaging customer experience. The Vantage platform makes today’s digital worker and processes smarter and empowers the new citizen developer to accelerate digital transformation initiatives and expand automation to new processes in a fast and simple way, making an immediate impact on business results and customer experience.” Mindee, the developer platform for AI document processing, has announced that it has won “Best Handwriting Recognition Solution” in the AI Breakthrough Awards. Mindee’s Handwritten Receipt Processing API enables handwritten text recognition on all receipts worldwide, and offers solid performance based on the latest research in deep learning and computer vision. Jonathan Grandperrin, CEO of Mindee, commented: “Receiving the ‘Best Handwriting Recognition Solution’ award highlights the impact of our significant R&D investments. We’ve built a team of machine learning experts pushing the boundaries of AI to provide leading document process automation to global businesses.” As a side note, stay tuned for Jonathan Grandperrin’s opinion piece coming in July for insights on the key factors that should be considered when choosing an Intelligent Document Processing solution. IDP vendor Evolution AI has won AI Breakthrough’s “Best Machine Learning Company”.
