The following comparison data is the result of recognizing around a hundred images, not including the blurred ones, the ones with strong light reflection and dim images.
|Company Name||Text Accuracy||Recognition time||Footprint||Languages supported*||Customization||Common usage||Mobile App|
|ABBYY||90.46%||8.19s||-||190*||No||Business Card, Paper document, Invoice||Business Card Reader, TextGrabber|
|Yunmai||89.45%||6.25s||<5MB||14*||Yes||Passports and IDs documents, Invoices, Bank statements, Computerized receipts, Business cards, Banking cards, Mail, Car plate||Chinese Driver's Licence recognition, Banking Card recognition, Chinese ID Card recognition, Passport recognition, Chinese Vehicle Registration recognition|
*: Be careful when counting languages, some solutions like ABBYY count the actual languages number but the country supported. For example, Russian is counted several times for Russia, Poland, etc. Yunmai Technology just count the actual languages supported and not the countries, so that’s why it seems to have less languages.
Although the text accuracy of other OCR engines are better, no solutions can guarantee 100% accuracy because an important factor is the quality of the scanned document.
A low image quality like blurred image, dim image, skewed image and image with strong light refection will reduce the recognition rate.
According to the above table, ABBYY OCR text accuracy is 1% higher than Yunmai's OCR. This is not a large difference between ABBYY and Yunmai's OCR SDKs.
For the recognition average time, Yunmai's OCR SDK is 1.94s faster than ABBYY OCR SDK (around 20% better). Using a faster recognition solution can help saving time and resources, and improve efficiency.
Yunmai’s mobile OCR engine is taking less than 5MB of memory. Footprint is an important factor to measure whether OCR engine is suitable to integrate in your application or server. Integrating OCR SDK with a small footprint will reduce the installation package weight of the application and server, and makes run faster. For ABBYY, we don’t have data on the footprint of their OCR engine.
To our knowledge, ABBYY don’t supply customized OCR SDK for clients. Yunmai Technology has more than 12 years of experience in developing customized Optical Character Recognition solutions. We provide customized OCR solutions to match customers’ requirements such as recognition of ID cards, credit cards, driver licenses.
OCR technology improves the accuracy of data collection and reduces the time required by human workers to enter the data. In order to make OCR technology more accessible and beneficial to more people, Yunmai has more flexible and lower price for developers compare with ABBYY.
Yunmai Technology has development license and deployment license for Android, iOS, Windows, and Linux. Developers can choose and pay for different services:
We also offer special discount for lifetime licenses.
For example take this requirements:
For this solution, ABBYY pricing is $35,000 compare with the $10,000 for Yunmai Technology.
Referring to the above table, the text accuracy recognition of ABBYY OCR solution is 1% better than Yunmai’s. For recognition speed and price, Yunmai Technology has more advantages than ABBYY. Moreover, Yunmai Technology can supply customized OCR solutions to meet customers’ requirements.
With more than 10 years’ experience in OCR solution development, our development team will provide technical support for the first year, to help our clients in the integration of our technology into their products.
