Research & Development
The original recognition innovator – and still global leader
Every game-changing and paradigm-shifting software or technology ever developed has a central icon.
Scientist Jean-Claude Simon performed groundbreaking work on automated handwriting recognition and workflow automation, which led to A2iA's founding in Paris, France in 1991.
Since its inception, A2iA has been a science-driven and research-based technology and software developer. The commitment and standard set by Mr. Simon carries through to the current day. Fully 100% of A2iA's products are developed, tested and perfected in-house at A2iA’s research and development laboratory, the largest private research and development facility of its kind anywhere in the world.
Because of its commitment to R&D and to creating best-in-breed software toolkits, A2iA invests 25% of its annual revenue back into research and development each year.
Jean-Claude Simon knew that the only way to remain a global leader was to continue to innovate, grow and evolve. A2iA continues to follow his lead, while blazing some new trails of its own.
