Starting Point

Allianz Suisse Immobilien AG, a company of the Allianz insurance group, launched the "CO2 footprint" project to measure and reduce the company-wide CO2 footprint. To determine the current CO2 emissions of the 300 properties, the electricity, gas, and district heating consumption data were collected and evaluated. 6,000 electricity bills were read, which were issued by 96 energy companies over a period of one year. This resulted in large deviations of the bills in terms of layout and structure. Manual collection of the information would have been time-consuming, repetitive and error-prone, which is why an automated solution was instigated.

Our Approach

In a first phase, the statements of the six largest energy plants were read out with the Acodis data extraction software. These statements represented 50% of the existing documents. This meant that a significant part could already be analysed and a process set up for the following phases. The pipeline of the extraction process included text recognition and classification of the scanned statements, extraction and analysis of the relevant data and storage of the extracted data in a database.
In the second phase, Allianz Immobilien is now able to use the Acodis data extraction software as an ongoing service (Software as a Service). This allows the extraction and analysis of further statements at the push of a button. The ongoing service can also be further supplemented with statements from additional energy utilities.
