Intelligent Document Processing

Maximize the value of RPA with intelligent process automation

What Is Intelligent Document Processing?


Intelligent document processing (IDP) leverages unassisted machine learning and AI to extract data across all types of documents as they enter your organization—making that data usable across your business. IDP streamlines manual processes and eliminates costly steps like document classification, manual data entry, and document analysis.

A critical part of intelligent process automation, IDP enhances robotic process automation (RPA) capabilities, helping you maintain control of information with more speed and accuracy, especially in mortgage processing, sales order processing, or invoice processing. 

How Does Intelligent Document Processing Work?

Intelligent Data Capture


An intelligent document processing solution helps eliminate labor intensive, error prone, and time-consuming forms processing. By capturing forms as they arrive in your organization from a scanner, email or monitored folder, forms are automatically sorted based on patterns, appearances, and text into specific document classes for extraction.

Artificial Intelligence & Unassisted Machine Learning


An IDP solution relies on machine learning for fast setup of previously unseen forms as the system learns which document information to capture, getting smarter and better over time. And artificial intelligence is leveraged for data classification and categorization to ensure fast document processing across your organization.

Automatic Data Extraction and Routing


An IDP solution can reduce manual data entry between 60 to 90 percent by automatically extracting relevant data fields based on form type. Data can be extracted from machine printed forms or even barcodes. Route forms electronically with the ability to easily output images and data to the correct applications for processing.

What Business Processes Benefit Most from Intelligent Document Processing?

Claims Processing Automation

Invoice Processing

Reduce delays and errors for processing invoices by eliminating manual data entry. Improve vendor relationships, save time, and ensure resources spend time on value-added tasks.
Accounts Payable Automation

Sales Order Processing

Streamline and accelerate sales order processing. Increase efficiency and reduce costs for order processing, customer service, and document archiving.

Intelligent Automation Makes Sense of All Data Types

Delivering on the promise of digital transformation with an intelligent automation platform requires the ability to harness both structured and unstructured data. But not all data is created the same. Together, RPA and IDP empower organizations with intelligent process automation that solves some of their biggest document processing challenges. 


Structured Data

Structured data is organized, clearly defined, and searchable, but represents only about 20 percent of the data in each company. Robotic process automation (RPA) excels at structured or quantitative data automation.

Unstructured Data

More than 80 percent of all data within organizations is unstructured. Unstructured data is typically qualitative. It is difficult to interpret and analyze because it has no pre-defined structure.
