What ABBYY solution would be the best to power a supermarket receipt scanning and saving in a Database mobile application.

We apologize for the long delay.
Now we can recommend to use ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK. You can use the following scenario:
1) recognize your image and export words with its coordinates to XML,
2) extract the necessary information from this XML-file on your side.
During the recognition we recommend to set the following settings:
Your request URL should look like this: http://cloud.ocrsdk.com/processImage?correctSkew=false&imageSource=scanner&profile=textExtraction&exportformat=xml
Also it is possible to use ABBYY Mobile OCR SDK (for offline recognition), but it is not recommended, as the recognition quality is better in non-mobile SDK, and the receipts text quality is rather low.
We are going to implement a special module for receipts recognition to ABBYY FineReader Engine and ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK in about a year. It is possible to implement it earlier special for your project for additional cost. If your are interested in it, please contact Sales.
