"As a solution provider, we always want the best for our customers. Thanks to the LEADTOOLS SDK modules, we were able to expand our solution quickly and easily to include functions such as barcode recognition."
Head of Software Projects
"We use LEADTOOLS Imaging Pro Developer Toolkit for more than 20 years. The library is working fast and reliable. For so many years we have experienced no major issues. And this is important as rendering and image processing is a core function of the Document Management system that we provide to our customers."
Vice President Research & Development and Quality
“As a long-time customer of LEADTOOLS, we’ve been using LEAD’s OCR engine to extract information from incoming faxes to be stored in our database. LEAD’s OCR technology has allowed us to improve our internal workflow and organization of our records.”
“In need of new tools for encoding and decoding MPEG2, MPEG4, WMV, and H.264, we found LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDK. With their robust toolkit and flexible support and sales teams, LEADTOOLS has been integrated within Pipelogix and we’ve been satisfied customers since 2005.”
“Thanks to LEADTOOLS, we were able to easily integrate top-notch Document, OCR, and PDF functionality into our Merge Document Management paperless office solution.”
Business Analyst, R&D
“KS21 Software & Beratung GmbH uses the Leadtools Imaging Pro SDK to capture image documentation on the construction site and to support order planning and order processing. With Unirent and LEADTOOLS we found two strong business partners for the implementation of further documentation and processing mechanisms and look forward to future projects with the help of your products.”
“eDOC Aviation Solution AG specializes in software solutions for complex technical documentation. Both in our flagship applications ‘eDoc’ for document management and paperless records management and in our solutions for data extraction in special cases, we need a powerful OCR and the ability to read, edit and create PDF. LEADTOOLS provides a high-performance and reliable library with a modern API for this purpose.”
“Using LEADTOOLS Document SDK we were able to quickly develop a customized scanning application to handle the large quantity of files our employees process, store, and transfer daily.”
"We have leveraged the LEADTOOLS Document and PDF toolkits within our records management software for many years. The quality of both their components and their customer relationship team really sets them apart from other vendors."
"Our eDiscovery software needs to be able to process, extract and store data from thousands of sensitive client files. LEADTOOLS Document and OCR libraries have been invaluable to our development team since 2009"
Director of Software Development
"Integrating LEADTOOLS OCR and Recognition libraries into our scanning solutions have given our developers truly powerful technology and access to a reliable customer support team."
Senior Software Engineer
"Making the decision to integrate LEADTOOLS was easy because of their reliable and convenient DICOM libraries. Their intuitive API helped us shrink our development time and hit our deadlines. The code samples provided on their website are extremely helpful, and to back it up they also have direct technical support to help answer any other questions."
"The LEADTOOLS SDK's high-level interface is a joy to work with and works on Linux when I develop on Mac!"
"LEADTOOLS has been integrated within our document management platform, VirPack, for over 20 years. LEAD’s document conversion and annotation libraries allowed our development team to hit the ground running when building and optimizing the virtual file and workflow automation capabilities that our product provides."
Michael J. Coar Jr.
"We have been using LEADTOOLS development toolkits for over 15 years. Their customer support and development teams have been extremely responsive to all of our technical needs. Their DICOM capabilities have ensured our ability to provide DICOM communications services for our application, and has been able to help us expand our DICOM feature set over the years."
"After difficulties using other tools, we were in the market for DICOM libraries from a trusted company, supported by high quality technical support, and rich in features and functionality. LEADTOOLS solved all of our problems with their Medical SDK and they provided us with excellent customer service!"
Mr. S. K. Lee
Head of Software
“To achieve DICOM compliant interoperability between our PACS server, MWL server, and other DICOM devices and services, we chose LEAD for their well-known and trusted LEADTOOLS DICOM libraries. I highly recommend LEADTOOLS for establishing interoperability with DICOM medical devices and equipment.”
