Hello. Today I'm going to show you how we can use ABBYY's web service API to write a custom integration with their software. It's a very, very simple process, and very flexible. 
 
So what I'm going to start off with is, by browsing the projects from the server. So I've provided a server name, and we're going to browse. Now when I hit "browse", it actually called the web service to return available projects to us. So all of this integration uses that web service API, and you can see the different types of details here on the form that we can get from it. 
 
So I can select a project and see the different batch types, along with the details. I can create a new batch, and when I create a new batch, you can see here, as I create it in my custom application, if I refresh here within ABBYY, you see now I have a demo test batch that was just created. 
 
I can also modify the batch. So I can add documents to the batch, add separators, I can even delete documents or modify what we call registration parameters. So it is a very, very neat integration, and it's a very cool way that we can write custom application that integrate and communicate back and forth within ABBYY. 
 
So the next thing I will do is just create a document. I think we'll just do a PDF here that we'll send over to ABBYY. And you can see, we are uploading that document and soon we will have that document as part of the demo test batch. 
 
So it's a very, very neat process. You can see there our document is processing there. So this web service integration gives us a unique custom integration path for ABBYY FlexiCapture, so that we can do things that aren't using a station with the product. We can actually use our own logic and parse the results back from ABBYY so that we can have full control over how users integrate with our verification steps, as long as correcting any lack of confidence on characters.
 
So this is a very short video, but the goal is to show you the different things we can do within ABBYY's web service API. Once again, it's a very neat process ... gives us a lot of control from application development perspectives to send batches, send documents, and also be able to modify data there and communicate with ABBYY. 
 
So I hope you enjoyed this short video. It's a very neat process, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you so much.
