Asbis picks up Abbyy rights in Russia

by Stuart Wilson, Wednesday 3 September 2008

Emerging markets distribution powerhouse Asbis has added Abbyy to its vendor portfolio in Russia. Abbyy offers document recognition, data capture and linguistic software. Under the terms of the deal Asbis will distribute Abbyy’s complete portfolio within the Russian federation.

Asbis Russia will target resellers, dealers, retailers, e-commerce retailers and corporate customers across the Russian federation. According to Asbis, Abbyy products will also be available through the distributor’s regional sales offices and also its online marketplace.

“Asbis has extensive experience of successful operations in the Russian IT market reaching out to customers via a well established and ramified partner channel which is efficiently supported by an online trading system. We believe that the partnership with ASBIS will contribute to making our products more accessible and to spreading legal software in Russia,” commented Vladimir Manylov, deputy general manager at Abbyy Russia.

Siarhei Kostevitch, CEO at Asbis Group, said: “The new agreement with Abbyy is yet another step in our strategy of expanding our software offering. In the first half of 2008 we have observed a significant increase in software sales in the Russian market, as a result of combined actions by the Russian authorities and Microsoft. We want to further capitalise on this growth creating more value for our partners and investors.”

Abbyy products are used in large-scale government projects and are also used by other major vendors. Companies that license Abbyy technologies include Canon, EMC, HP, Microsoft and Samsung Electronics. Abbyy is headquartered in Moscow, Russia, with offices in Germany, the United States, Ukraine, the UK and Japan.
