Sunnyvale, CA (PressExposure) April 18, 2008 -- Inlite Research Inc, a leading worldwide provider of production quality tools for data capture, today announced the general availability of the ClearImage Tools version 5.5 with .NET support. The expanding market for document data capture and business process automation requires easy to use image analysis tools.
