About ABBYY FlexiCapture Cloud

ABBYY FlexiCapture Cloud is a cloud solution that is based on the ABBYY FlexiCapture Distributed framework and hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud environment. FlexiCapture Cloud is a data streaming service that uses the ABBYY Content IQ technology to classify documents by type and extract data from various sources for further processing in document management systems.

ABBYY FlexiCapture Cloud functionality and restrictions

The ABBYY FlexiCapture and ABBYY FlexiCapture Cloud platforms are identical in terms of basic features, components, and workstations. The cloud platform offers the same functionality as the On premise FlexiCapture version. There is also a possibility of the features integration into third-party systems with the help of ABBYY FlexiCapture Cloud Rest API.

See this page for more details about ABBYY FlexiCapture functionality.

Differences with regards to the traditional version and other limitations of the cloud version include:

    • Import is possible from POP3 server, FTP server and the Scanning Station.
    • To export files to local folders and local (On premise) databases, we recommend using the REST API.
    • No option to install or use third-party components and services on processing stations.
    • No access to the processing server monitor.
