Solution to OCR many bank statements into excel

Need to get data from hundreds of pages of bank records into a spreadsheet. We have a scanner with a document feeder, but would love some recommendations on software/workflow ideas.

I've searched previous questions and have found some info about Abbyy finereader
but I'm not sure if this is the current state of the art or what. I'm really new at this and would really appreciate suggestions for a good workflow for getting lots of bank statements into a spreadsheet to analyze. I know that the best option would be to download them from the bank in an electronic format but unfortunately that might not be possible.
I'm using Mac OS 10.7.4 but I also have a Windows 7 machine around that I can use if there are better solutions available for that platform.
