Company Summary

We offer clients our “proof of concept” pattern recognition software to help automate their optical character recognition (OCR), handwriting recognition, speech recognition, and image recognition business needs. Additionally, the initial OCR software API would be immediately useful to third party developers to incorporate into their own software products. Relevant sectors include business information services, technology, and industrials.
