The Adobe ocr did not seem to be as accurate as ABBYY, but the auto clean

The auto correction in the high end document acquisition systems is much
better, but a lot depends on document types.
Adobe do have an sdk, and I think they might also have a server based
system for high volume work flow environments, but I am not 100% sure.
