A2iA, a leading provider of tools for document analysis and handwritten data extraction, announced recently that KMWorld has named A2iA among the 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management for 2008. KM practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors and their customers and colleagues determine the yearly list to recognize innovation and excellence in the industry.
"I was contacted directly by A2iA customers, each advocating for A2iA's inclusion on this year's list, and explaining the breadth of A2iA's legitimate solutions to vexing business problems," said Hugh McKellar, Editor-in-Chief of KMWorld Magazine.

All companies included share the following criteria: Each has helped to create a market, redefine one or enhance one, and all of them demonstrate the capacity for customer-driven agile innovation."
According to KMWorld, companies that receive this prestigious distinction are those that best contribute to the better management of the intellectual property of an enterprise, and their position as leaders of innovation and competitive growth.
