How to Get Over 95% Invoice Data Extraction Accuracy

In an Accounts Payable (AP) life, there can be less of anything but 'Tables.' From invoices (irrespective of formats), claims, and purchase orders to reports, - everything completes with a table. Organizing data manually is like getting your hand trapped in a web, as unstructured invoice data continues to grow exponentially.

If you wish to make your invoice data extraction process a breeze and drive it effectively, shift your focus on implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) into your business. As we all know, invoicing, data extraction and sales strategies have evolved dramatically over the past decade, and unfortunately, how the invoices were processed earlier are now ceasing to exist. This reiterates that in the present scenario, just selling products and services to customers cannot guarantee a successful customer acquisition, let alone good repeat business.

What is Invoice Data Extraction?

Invoice data extraction is the process of extracting required data from any unstructured and structured invoices. Data is the new oil, and it is never enough. So to make the best of it, there needs to be a solution for managing its complexity. The heroes are Optical Character Recognition (OCR) & NLP extraction boosters for the invoices. 

Invoice Processing Extraction Evolution

Phase 1 - Manual Reviewing

  • Several invoices are submitted to the concerned POC
  • Reviewer scans the documents end-to-end
    • Enter/note down every detail in the software, including name, purchase time, item name, and price and more
  • Manual calculation of invoices or use of data entry software for accounting if any
  • The final receipt is created and payments processed

Phase 2- OCR Extraction & Manual Review 

  • Invoices are scanned, and digital copies are uploaded
  • OCR extracts the data from the digital text 
  • Relevant data and discard irrelevant data are identified
  • Data entry performed via manual review

Phase 3 - OCR & NLP

How Artificial Intelligence (AI) revolutionizes data extraction

AI gives wings to a business by offering access to inaccessible data in a sorted manner. With the right mix of AI and OCR technology, supported by a strong support team, it covers all aspects of data/contact management, invoicing management, reporting and analytics. It is an ideal AI-powered software for small businesses with many constructive features that make it simple to use and navigate.

Unlike the complex and never-ending invoice processes, the AI can essentially understand invoicing format faster, accomplishes it in a few minutes, and even decode terms like "Amount Payable," "Total," and "To Pay" more efficiently.
