Formscan and Becker Join Forces

Bringing together two experienced ABBYY capture & document businesses

READING, UK: Formscan Limited and Becker Limited announced today that the companies are joining forces to provide greater support and capabilities to both existing and new clients.


The joint expertise will enable the team, trading as Formscan, to have greater scope in solution design and deployment. The combined business will provide improved support to the Becker document and data capture solutions base, and add Formscan’s 38 year old data capture track record, along with its more recent success with Papertrail – The powerful SaaS document management & docflow application. www.formscan.com/papertrail

Chris Haden – Formscan’s Managing Director said:

"This is great news for both companies as we have recognised that the joint business is a stronger entity than the sum of the two parts, we will continue to promote and develop solutions based on the ABBYY FlexiCapture platform http://www.abbyy.com/en/flexicapture/ and add value with our Papertrail solutions and high security data centre services.”

Mark Eost – one of Becker’s founding directors said:

“We are pleased to be joining forces with Formscan and are looking forward to how Formscan’s high security infrastructure, and Papertrail software can benefit the Becker client base.”

Ed MacArthur – Head of Sales, ABBYY UK Ltd said:

“We are always happy to see cooperation in our partner ecosystem among different companies.
