Wärtsilä is a global leader in complete lifecycle power solutions for the marine and energy markets. The company has operations in nearly 170 locations across 70 countries worldwide.
A fast and reliable system to process orders is, therefore, a necessity.
Over 40'000 pages per year
As a global company offering shipping and energy solutions in more than 80 countries, Wärtsilä processes large volumes of orders and price requests daily. An initial attempt to automate and file the analysis of the documents did not deliver the expected results and proved too costly to maintain.
The goal was to find a flexible solution that could process different document structures and formats and be expanded to include new document types.
As a market leader in the field of intelligent document processing, Acodis was commissioned to set up a data extraction pipeline and to prepare a learning system that can be used and expanded independently by the employees.
In the first step, the service pipeline for automated data extraction was set up. The customised pipeline allows Wärtsilä to process 40,000 pages of orders and price requests per year.
In a second step, a customised user interface was created to control the extraction process and expand the pipeline with additional customers. Employees worldwide are able to react to changes in documents and add new clients.
