ORPALIS and GdPicture.NET Awards for 2019

ORPALIS is pleased to receive several ComponentSource awards for 2019.
The company wins the Top 25 Publishers award, and the GdPicture.NET Document Imaging SDK series wins both the Top 50 Products award with its Ultimate Edition and the Top 100 Products for its Document Imaging SDK Edition.

It’s the tenth year in a row that ORPALIS and its flagship SDK win ComponentSource awards, ever since it joined the software superstore for developers and IT professionals. GdPicture.NET has evolved tremendously over the years, from an Image SDK to a fully-featured library for document imaging, image processing, and document management.
GdPicture.NET covers all steps of the electronic document lifecycle, from acquisition to storage. The toolkit allows developers to build custom solutions for WinForms, WPF, and Web applications thanks to more than 3,000 features available.

A Successful Development Process

ORPALIS builds its products and solutions following the continuous integration and delivery model, which implies a constant effort on research and development. The goal is to provide new functionalities to the users as soon as they are developed.

This past year, the company focused on improving its viewer, barcode, hyper-compression (MRC), OCR, and PDF engines. Speed, quality, and accuracy of these engines are challenged continuously thanks to the hundreds of thousands of files processed by the company.
GdPicture.NET is developed in-house, and ORPALIS owns the full intellectual property of its algorithms. “Not depending on third-party components makes our SDK reliable and easy to adapt to our customers’ needs,” explains Loïc Carrère, the ORPALIS CEO and creator of GdPicture.NET, “and our competencies are vast, allowing us to cover the full lifecycle of an electronic document.”
