Intelligent Document Processing (IDP)

Intelligent Document Processing automates the processing of data within documents: contextualising the document, understanding the information, extracting it, and sending it to the right place.

With Acodis, you can do all of this in just a few seconds.

When does it make sense to use Acodis?
  • If you process different document layouts. An example could include: if the product number is not always in the same location, the use of machine learning is necessary.
  • When it comes to differentiating one six-digit number from another six-digit number. Thanks to Acodis, content can be read and classified in seconds. 
  • You want your own machine learning model. Acodis also offers you the opportunity to optimise a pre-trained ML model yourself and tailor it to your needs.
  • In document processing, it's best to receive the highest quality results with reliable precision. Acodis always offers you the option of a manual quality check for peace of mind.
What document formats can you handle with IDP?

We can work with anything that can be transformed into a PDF. Therefore, we can handle paper, Scans, PDFs and any other electronic format.

What languages do you support?

Anything that is read from top left to bottom right. If you would like to process any other language, talk to us

What should you look out for when evaluating the right tool?
  • Can all present and future layouts be edited automatically?
  • Is it a machine learning system or a simple rule-based system?
  • Data protection: who has access to your machine learning model?
  • How easy is the software for your future users to operate?
  • Demo: were you able to test all of the required features or are they merely promises?
Can you process handwritten documents?

As of today, we can only extract limited information from handwritten documents. If you know of a technology that is able to do so on a broad scale, please let us know 😊.

How is my sensitive data stored?

We do not store any customer data for longer than it takes to process the document.

Where does the service run?

It is easiest to use Acodis in the cloud.

If you have special requirements for an on-premise solution, the service can be installed on your own machines via a docker container.

Can I cancel or change my subscription plan at any time?

The minimum subscription period is 12 months, but you can always do upgrades (e.g. increase quota plan, add classification services etc.).

What is the difference between a "Document Type" and a "Document Class"?

Document types typically have different data schemes (e.g. purchase orders, policy insurance or pension certificate). In contrast, document classes have the same data scheme but differ among classes in terms of the document's structure or layout (e.g. purchase order client A vs purchase order client B vs purchase order client C).

What are "Data Points"?

Data Points are individual information items, text fields or images, which get extracted from the document. For example, "Name", "Address, "Contract Number", "Delivery Date" etc.

Can the extracted data be validated automatically?

Yes, the extracted data points can be validated automatically against customer-specific reference data or business rules.

Can I benefit from "Data Normalization" and "Transformation"?

Yes, you can benefit from automated data refinements (e.g. transform calendar dates into a standardized format).

What do you mean by "Enrichments"?

The structured data can be enriched using external and internal data sources. E.g., Automated lookup of coordinates based on street addresses.

Created with Sketch.

Using Machine Learning accordingly and thoughtfully is opening up new opportunities to make internal processes more efficient and ultimately deliver better value to our customers. With Acodis, we have found an ideal partner that not only has profound expertise in this area but also executes in time, quality, and budget.
