ABBYY FlexiCapture has multi-layered client-server architecture.

The server side contains 3 levels of components:

  • Application level
    • Application Server – a web-service in Internet Information Services (IIS) – is the main gateway for the HTTP/HTTPS traffic. It verifies user authentication and authorization, and performs the FlexiCapture business logic.
    • Licensing Server is a service controlling information about current license and legal system performance.
  • Processing level
    • Processing Server is a service managing a pool of Processing Stations in distributed computing.
  • Data storage level
    • Database is a repository of processing settings, personal user data, and statistics on the processed documents and documents in progress.
    • FileStorage is a stock of document images and data.

Each of these components can be installed on a separate computer – for customizable security, reliability, and independent scaling.

The client side includes:

  • Scanning Stations and Verification Stations, which are applications making document images, feeding them to FlexiCapture, and verifying extracted data. These applications are available as:
    • local clients;
    • web clients running in a browser;
    • mobile applications.
  • Processing Stations, which import and process images, perform optical character recognition on documents, run custom scripts, export captured data into the customer’s ERP system, and make a number of service operations.
  • Administration & Monitoring Web Console
  • Project Setup Station used to configure document and data processing settings.
