Automatic Document-Type Detection, Classification, and Key-Field Extraction. Virtually All Data From Any Document – Even Complex Workflows
a2ia DocumentReader™ is a powerful document classification and key-field extraction engine that drives successful workflow automation and digital file conversion processes for leading businesses worldwide. A2iA’s signature technology includes its software’s unique ability to automatically identify the document-type, route each document to the appropriate workflow based on both layout and content, and to extract specific identifying fields and phrases.
Complex documents can be defined as those documents that contain handwritten information, and those that have varying layouts and structures. Think for a minute about how many documents in every line of business fit this definition. That’s A LOT of complex documents that traditional recognition technology cannot easily process!
Complex documents can be problematic for businesses trying to automate their document workflow because they typically rely on human paper-handling to evaluate, decipher and classify the information, which slows productivity and increases costs. More human interaction = more labor costs, increased process bottlenecks and slower processing times. a2ia DocumentReader™ eliminates these operational headaches by automating the unnecessary manual processes of document sorting and manual data-entry of key fields and phrases. This translates directly into improved speed to information, data accuracy and company profitability. It’s that simple.
Applications: Document Classification & Key-Field Extraction
a2ia DocumentReader™ is the only software able to process all types of paper documents and incoming mail, regardless of their structure or contents. A2iA goes further than existing OCR and ICR engines that are unable to recognize cursive handwriting, and other classification engines that use only layout to route a document.
a2ia DocumentReader™ automates the entire incoming workflow. With this new generation of technology, all-types of paper documents can be processed automatically. The engines first classify the documents into “categories” by analyzing both their geometry and content. The software examines the layout of the documents’ elements. Then, using a general dictionary as well as a trade vocabulary, it analyses the content of the document to extract key words and expressions in order to determine the type of document.
A2iA’s technology turns paper documents into meaningful information that can be integrated into companies’ information system.
a2ia DocumentReader™ extracts all identifying information from printed and cursive documents to define key information: alpha (first name, last name, address block), numeric, or alpha-numeric (Social Security Number, phone number, client’s reference, account, etc.)
The A2iA-extracted data can then be imported into document management, knowledge management or enterprise-search systems. With this add-on, cursive handwritten information can become part of a structured database, making it searchable and reportable - based on complex parameters - with the same level of flexibility as printed or digital data.
Customers are using a2ia DocumentReader™ in every type of industry, company and country you can imagine to create and manage digital mailrooms, automate forms and payment processes, convert paper to electronic files, improve service response times and improve access to data throughout the organization.
