Feed your Robots (RPA) with Content Intelligence
Nowadays software robots allow you to solve many problems associated with routine operations. RPA usually simply mimics a human, depicting his actions: moves the mouse around the screen, presses buttons, copies content between applications and so on. With RPA, it is easy to automate the simplest operations, such as copying data, saving attachments from email, and etc. But what if you want to automate more complicated operations, such as purchase order or invoice processing?
Do not feed robots with unstructured data
Invoices usually contain unstructured information, processing of which is beyond the power of even the smartest RPA solutions. Therefore, in order to feed the robot with data for the correct invoice processing, the data from the document should first be brought to a structured form that the robot can understand, for example, in XML format.
Convert images to data with OCR
A scenario is also possible when incoming invoices are not e-generated documents but just scanned paper documents. In this case, to use RPA, such documents should first be recognized using optical character recognition (OCR) technology.
ABBYY FlexiCapture makes you RPA smarter
Integration of the RPA solution with ABBYY FlexiCapture allows you to solve many tasks at once, including OCR of scanned paper documents, as well as capturing data from unstructured documents, such as invoices, and bringing this data into a format understandable to software robots. In addition, ABBYY FlexiCapture has many smart built-in tools, such as Images Enhancement tools, flexible business rules for validating captured data, a special solution for smart invoice processing, a user-friendly verification interface, and etc.
