LuraTech Includes Document Classification and Data Extraction in LuraDocument PDF Compressor's Standard Package

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) -  LuraTech, a leading provider of production software for document processing and PDF/A and OCR solutions, announced today that document classification and field level data extraction capabilities are now available as part of the standard package of LuraDocument PDF Compressor Enterprise, the company's flagship product for document and data conversion. Previously document classification and data extraction were available only as an optional add-on to the software solution.

"All around the world, organizations with significant document conversion needs are using PDF Compressor because it is a reliable, high-performance and cost-effective solution," said Mark McKinney, president of LuraTech Inc. "By adding document classification and data extraction to the standard offering, we're giving our customers added capabilities that will continue to provide them with the flexibility they need to quickly react to the rigorous demands of their business."

LuraDocument PDF Compressor already offers outstanding compression using its award-winning mixed raster content (MRC) compression technology. With MRC, PDF Compressor can compress color scanned PDF or PDF/A files to the same size as black-and-white TIFF G4 files, while retaining outstanding image quality and text readability. The solution also includes optical character recognition (OCR) to make all PDF and PDF/A documents full text searchable, and enables classification and data extraction from both free-form and template-based documents.

With optional modules, such as "Born Digital" and "Digital Signature," PDF Compressor's conversion options can be further extended. Born Digital enables electronically generated documents from MS Office, Outlook and PDFs to be converted in batches just as easily as scanned paper documents. The Digital Signature add-on enables documents to be converted and signed in a single pass.

LuraTech also offers expert support services to assist users with installation, integration and use of PDF Compressor.
