Strategic Partnerships and Executive Appointments Position the
Company for Accelerated Market Penetration of its Content IQ Solutions

MILPITAS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#AIlt;/agt;–During fourth quarter of 2018, ABBYY content IQ solutions and services
became more widely and readily available from new strategic partners and
robotic process automation (RPA) vendors’ digital marketplaces. ABBYY’s
momentum in forming new partnerships and gaining more enterprise
customers is attributed to organizations’ increasing deployment of RPA
technologies, and the need to make the software robots smarter.
Additionally, new executives were appointed to drive continued global
expansion of the company’s AI-enabling technologies, and ABBYY senior
executives spoke at major tech conferences about the opportunities for
integrating AI capabilities into the enterprise.

“ABBYY has remained focused on two important fronts – developing the
most innovative technologies and solutions using machine learning,
natural language processing and intelligent capture, and delivering
business value to our customers and partners,” commented Ulf Persson,
Chief Executive Officer at ABBYY. “The relationships we’ve built is a
testament to our dedication and aspiration to remain a global leader in
delivering content IQ solutions that enable organizations to digitally
operate better and deliver a better experience to their customers.”
