August 19, 2010 in Business
[prMac.com] Mons, Belgium - Creaceed today releases Prizmo, the first All-in-One Mobile Scanning and OCR Solution for iPhone. We have never been as close to the paperless office as now. Prizmo scans documents from a picture with your iPhone, and applies a specific processing depending on which kind of document you selected. Then, you can save and share the output.
Creaceed developed Prizmo for iPhone following the tremendous success of the Mac version, and the huge demand of users for an iPhone version. The team focused on designing a beautifully-crafted interface to offer an awesome user experience. Besides, the app is fully compatible with iOS4 (Multitasking and Retina Display Support).
Another unique feature is combining Optical Character Recognition and Text-to-Speech Technologies. Creaceed partnered with world-leading specialists: ExperExchange, Inc. for highly accurate OCR, and with Acapela Group S.A. for natural sounding TTS. Therefore, Prizmo is a unique utility giving high-quality results with an intuitive experience.

* Processing available for 4 document kinds: business cards, bills, regular text and whiteboards
