Key improvements

Improvements in built-in skills


  • New fields named "Bank Account" and "Bank Code" added to the Invoice US and Invoice CA skills
  • New field named "Swift Code" added to the Invoice and Invoice ES skills
  • Address parsing implemented in the Invoice US skill

Purchase orders

  • Improved extraction quality for French documents
  • Added a Splitter skill to split files containing multiple purchase orders


  • New countries supported: Hungary, Slovakia, and Serbia
  • Added the ability to extract handwritten amounts

Skills for delivery notes, packing lists, and sea waybills

Skills have been re-trained to improve extraction quality

Tax forms

  • Tax forms for the year 2023 are now supported (the only exception being Form 1040 for 2023,
    the support for which will be added in an upcoming release)
  • Added the ability to extract handwritten text from Form 1095-A
  • Added documentation for the Form 8949, Sales and Other Dispositions of Capital Assets document skill


Rules have been updated in many skills to prevent incorrect adding or deletion of line items in cases
when some cells are filled in using rules. Additionally, post-processing scripts are now applied to final
values, allowing the re-training of field locations if needed, and ensuring correct post-processing.

Improvements to exported PDF files

When exporting multi-page photos to PDF, Vantage will now automatically adjust the page sizes to ensure consistency, resulting in improved visual quality of output.
This enhancement is particularly beneficial for photos of IDs, business cards, and other documents with
non-standard page dimensions. For documents with A4 page sizes, the export process remains

Vantage Mobile Input SDK (Early Access)

Vantage Mobile Input can be integrated into native iOS or Android applications by using the Vantage
Mobile Input SDK. The VMI SDK provides a list of API methods for capturing, saving, and uploading
documents directly from a mobile device to ABBYY Vantage.
The Vantage Mobile Input distribution package includes a code sample that shows how to use the API,
and provides examples of typical scenarios, and documentation describing how to integrate the VMI SDK
into iOS and Android applications. You can get early access to the Vantage Mobile Input SDK library
using the following links:
