What does Document Automation do?
Document Automation extracts printed text and handwritten data from faxed or scanned forms at high accuracy. Our customers use Document Automation to automate digital workflows, resulting in high efficiency, improved customer experience, and faster turnaround times. Our AI, READ, recognizes and transcribes text, numbers, and checkboxes at an image level. Set up is easy and requires no coding or machine learning training. Your blank forms are used as templates to crop and extract individual form fields, called ‘shreds’, to be sent for digitization. Our competitive advantage is our AI is trained to extract and digitize real world, low quality printed text and handwriting quickly and accurately.
The Document Automation platform is a complete solution that turns scanned pages into automation ready data. It automatically identifies and classifies pages by matching them to your templates and extracts printed-type and handwritten data from your defined form fields. There is an optional human-in-the-loop review interface to inspect the digitized results and to make corrections if necessary. Data transformations can be applied to make data output consistent and ready for ingestion into a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) or other backend system.
