Classification is the process of putting document images or text documents into certain predefined categories.
Documents can be classified manually or automatically.
Manual classification of large amounts of documents is
- error-prone when working against tight deadlines
ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 includes classification technologies that can be easily trained to classify documents without creating complicated rules or FlexiLayouts in ABBYY FlexiLayout Studio.
The ABBYY FlexiCapture classification technologies are highly flexible and can be used to distinguish:
- Document types (e.g. you can separate passports from invoices)
- Document variations (e.g. you can detect invoices received from different vendors or driver's licenses issued in different states)
- Document boundaries (e.g. you can detect the first and the subsequent pages of documents of each type).
