ABBYY Vantage Video – ACORD® Document Processing

Learn how to process ACORD® forms in ABBYY® Vantage.

Hello. Today I’d like to share with you how we process ACORD® forms within ABBYY® Vantage. Now what you see in front of us is an ACORD® 25 form. This is the form that is our certificate of liability insurance. So a very common form in business. And what you’ll see as I show you kind of behind the scenes of what’s cool with how ABBYY Vantage works with these forms is that we support a number of ACORD forms that are already prebuilt within the software for you to process. So what that means is that you don’t have to teach the software about these documents. All you simply have to do is upload them and start processing your documents automatically.

This is really cool because this gives you the ability to kind of instantly hit the ground running with the software. And of course, on an ACORD form, we’re looking for the header information. So, who’s the producer? Who’s the insured? Who the contact information is. And then of course, we get into our nitty gritties of the policy information that we have. What are the limits? What are the types of policies? Et cetera. And then of course any sort of certificate holder or signing details that we need off of that document.

So this is already prebuilt for us. Here’s an example of us diving into the commercial general liability, where we’re obviously seeing everything that the software extracted here and of course, we’re also able to extract all of the general limits and those sorts of things as well that will come off of these sort of ACORD forms. So it’s a very common implementation of what the software’s able to do for us. Once again, already prebuilt out of the box and ready for you to consume without ever having to even worry about setting up your own model because we already have those in play for us. Now, let me show you how we kind of get started very quickly within ABBYY to make this happen.

The first thing we do is we set up a process skill. And I already have one that is preestablished for us, but essentially this is how easy it is. I dragged an input, an extract, a manual review and an output. The extract activity should point to our prebuilt ACORD 25 document skill. Document skills, if you remember, are the ones that tell the software what model to use for extraction. And then this is an optional queue, but we have the ability to stop a document for a human review upon certain criteria, whether it’s a business rule, so we didn’t find certain fields or they weren’t the certain math that we wanted, or we can force every document to come in. So this would be an optional step. And then of course, when we output this, you have a ton of configuration options in how you get that data back to you.

But the cool part is that we’ve already had that prebuilt model, so I don’t have to set up an extraction skill. I’ve already done that. The software’s actually already done that for us. It comes prebuilt within Vantage. So all we got to do is set up a very basic process skill in a matter of a few seconds, and we are processing these ACORD forms as if we’ve been able to do this a million times.

Looking forward to learning how your experience goes with this technology. If you need any help or you have interest in using ABBYY Vantage, please contact us.

ABBYY Vantage Video – Logistics Document Processing

Discover in our video how to process logistics documents in ABBYY® Vantage.

Hello. Today I’d like to share with you how we process logistics documents. And typically when we get these sort of use cases, really what we see is that there’s a packet of information that’s been delivered to you that has logistic information and bill of lading documents, commercial invoices, packing slips, et cetera and our software has the ability to take that packet, split it, determine the document types, and then extract information from those documents. This is a very popular scenario in the logistics world.

Now, what we see in front of us here is a packet that I’ve received and it contained multiple documents. So this was one PDF with multiple documents in it. And our software was able to split it, and we were able to determine that in this case, the first series of pages is a bill of lading, and then I had a certificate of origin, there’s a commercial invoice on the document, and then lastly, a scale ticket. So in our case, what we have here is the ability to what we call assemble. So split up the packet, determine the document type, we call that classification, and then of course, based on that document type extract the information. So we’ve been able to determine that the first page, for example, is a bill of lading, and then the model that we call for this bill of lading is referred to here on the right. So this is the information that we’ve extracted on the software.

The cool part about this technology, especially in transportation, is that we have the ability to machine learn different document types. So as we see different bill of ladings or as we see different commercial invoices, the software can learn those documents and also it can learn what to extract off of those documents. So not only does it know that a new document is present and how to classify it, but it also can determine what to extract on that document, even though it’s never seen it before. So machine learning in logistics is a very, very important aspect of automating these sort of processes.

Now that you understand the concept, let me show you a little bit behind the scenes on a typical setup for a ABBYY Vantage Process Skill. What you’ll see here is that we have always an input and an output. Every single process skill will always have that, but right here in the middle is really where the critical part of this process skill comes into play. You see, I have an assemble step. The assemble step gives me the ability to classify and break apart that packet. So although I may have one PDF with all of these details in it, or one email with all these details in it, we can determine when to split it. Now that we know how to split it, we will classify it. So we’ll determine the different document types within the packet, and then of course, based on those document types, we will extract it. Then lastly, if and only if needed, we would send that to a review queue. So this is a very common flow, especially in more complicated scenarios where we just need a ton of document types in one given packet.

Now, before I wrap this up, I wanted to kind of share also the different document types that we support. We support a tremendous amount of document types in the transportation and logistics world. You’ll see some of those listed here. If you don’t see some of the documents that you have, it is very likely that we have models already created for them. Also, our machine learning technology gives us the ability to adapt to new documents that we’ve never even seen before, very, very rapidly, and without the need to do templating or without the need to have consultants or highly technical staff to do that for you.

Definitely continue looking into your logistics use cases here with ABBYY Vantage. I think we’ve got a really cool piece of technology that can automate this for you.

ABBYY Vantage Video – Property Tax Bills

View how you can extract key information from Property Tax Statements via ABBYY Vantage.

Hello. Today I’d like to give you a quick overview of what our property tax bill can extract for us on either residential or commercial property tax statement.

It’s a very clean, what we call skill. This is a document skill that we’ve developed to extract information from these bills. You can see that the model that we’re using is referencing things like header details on the tax statement. So things that are found one time such as the owner or the parcel information, et cetera. And then of course we got our repeating information, or taxing unit details down at the bottom, which of course can sometimes be one item. It can sometimes be pages of items. So our software is definitely built to process a variety of these tax bills. But that’s what I wanted to show you real quick is kind of just a summary that we’re able to extract this information on these property tax bills no matter what they look like. Obviously, different municipalities or counties or different locations have control of their formats, of their tax bills. However, our machine learning models do have the ability to learn those different formats, therefore taken away the requirement of human template development and things like that.

Now, let me kind of explain to you quickly the workflow through our solution is very simple and it is configurable, but this is a very common way to do it where we’ll bring a document into the solution, which is ABBYY Vantage. We will extract the information from the bill. We will then review it if necessary, and then of course, we can provide that output to you in the proper format that your business looks to consume. This is very, very common flow and a very great use case and model for property tax bills.

ABBYY Vantage Video – Integration with MuleSoft®

Learn how to integrate MuleSoft® with ABBYY Vantage® to retrieve document information from a source application.

Hello. Today I’m going to show you a really cool integration between MuleSoft® and ABBYY® Vantage®. Now, this is a very simple flow and very simple to develop in these mature applications.

So what you see in front of us is our Anypoint Studio so that we can develop the flow. And this flow is pretty simple. We have our listener, which is the way to invoke this process. That can happen through a multitude of other options, but today it’s just that we have an API listener that we’re going to invoke this process. Once that process is invoked, you can see here we’re just going to kind of make sure that as part of the post to MuleSoft, we get some file details and those sorts of things. So we’re going to store those in variables. Then we’re going to go to ABBYY Vantage® and say, Hey, give me a token, and then we’re going to store that token in a variable, and we will use that token then in this next activity to upload the file to Vantage.

So a very simple flow, but our goal here is to get a document from a source application through MuleSoft to ABBYY Vantage. The way that we’re going to invoke this listener today is through Postman®. So pretty simple way that we want to call it and invoke it. But this would obviously be a multitude of options. But what I’m going to click is our send button. When I click the send button, you will see that part of my MuleSoft flow was to return the transaction ID. This transaction ID is the ABBYY Vantage transaction ID. So then we can store that and we can save that in our flow here in other variables. So we have a lot of options here on what we do with that data, but that’s our goal, is we’re going to upload that file to a Vantage. And as part of that response, we’re going to provide the transaction ID to the caller.

If we look on the ABBYY Vantage side, what we’ll see here is that we now have a document that is available for our review, and of course we can open it, we can work it in manual review. Ideally, documents don’t even go to manual review. So the part of this flow would obviously be not just passing the document and getting the transaction ID, but also parsing the details of the documents so that either in JSON or other standard formats that our consumer application requires, we then have all of the details, all the field level details off of that document that we can use to kind of transform and transpose over to the caller application.

So a very cool way to use mature technology to pass information through, in this case, Vantage APIs, and get that information and parse that and make sure the calling application is updated. And the cool part is here is that it’s just a very simple series of steps where we’re asking ABBYY Vantage for the token, and of course we’re uploading files. And then eventually we may even read the results from Vantage here as part of this flow. So just want to give you a glimpse of how we set up this integration. Hope you enjoy this video.

ABBYY Vantage Video – ChatGPT(TM) Sentiment Analysis

Discover in our video how to utilize ABBYY Vantage to perform a sentiment analysis with large language models like ChatGPT(TM).

Hello. Today I’d like to show you how we can integrate ABBYY Vantage with large language models in this case ChatGPT(TM). So what you have in front of us is a very basic restaurant survey, and that’s really the kind of the concept of today’s demo is that we have the ability to get things like a large comments field and be able to grade that based on what we refer to as sentiment or what is the intent of that comment in this case. Is it positive, negative, or neutral? So that we have some generic grading of incoming documents and the feedback we have on those documents.

This is a very basic example of some surveys that we had from a restaurant. Really what we’re grading here is the comments field. That’s really what we’re trying to capture off the surveys. And then what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna pass that over to ChatGPT for sentiment analysis so we can understand whether it’s a positive, negative or neutral response.

And the workflow will look like this. A document comes into ABBYY and we’ll extract that comments field. We will then send that comments field to ChatGPT, and then of course we’ll review it.

I’ve already set that up for you and kind of show you some of these examples here. So in front of us is an example of a survey that we got and you can read the comment is quite positive. And so what we’re doing is we’re passing that comments to ChatGPT and ChatGPT is looking at the sentiment of that comments field and telling us this is a positive statement. We’ll look at another one here where potentially it was just, okay, the comment said my experience was just, okay. So that’s what we refer to as a neutral sentiment. And then of course we have the negative sentiment where we are looking at a comment that obviously says we’re not coming back to eat anymore here. And that is of course a negative sentiment. And then last, just for fun, we have a book <laugh> of a comment where, look, we’re just getting a substantial amount of detail here that tells us this person had a very negative experience. They’re telling us why. Said they’ll never come back again and try other restaurants. And of course we are looking for a negative grading on that statement.

So sentiment analysis is one of these ways that we can take and have ABBYY Vantage extract that data for us and pass that to a large language model where we can grade it for either summarization or sentiment. And in today’s demo, this was sentiment, a very basic example, but really in real life we would use this in some sort of digital mailroom experience where documents may be coming in and we’re looking for whether or not a letter was a complaint letter or a compliment letter and those sorts of things. So hope you enjoyed this very basic review of how we can integrate ChatGPT into ABBYY Vantage.

ABBYY Vantage Video – Manual Cropping and Splitting Within a Review Queue

Learn in our demo how to manually crop and split documents within a review queue in ABBYY Vantage.

Hello. Today I’m gonna walk you through how we set up manual review cropping on a document. And this happens in places where we actually get three separate documents on a given page or even within a given file. But this is an example of what you see on the screen. I have one page with three separate IDs on them, and really what we would need is those to be three separate documents. So in ABBYY Vantage, we have the ability to allow a human to tell us where on this page the documents start and stop so they can crop them. And then from there we can set up the rest of the extraction and classification processes automatically.

So this is very common, like what you’re gonna see in business. Somebody just gives us three documents, three in this case IDs on a given page. But we actually need those to be three separate documents for storage and automation downstream.

So what we’re gonna have here is what we refer to as a process skill. And today’s process is gonna be what you see here on the screen. We’re gonna bring a document in, we’re gonna send that to a cropping review screen. So that’s the very first thing that’s gonna happen is we’re gonna ask the human to crop this image to make sure that we’ve auto separated it. Now what that does is it will create one document with three separate IDs. So if you remember here, when we crop, what’s gonna happen is we’ll have three separate IDs, but all within a single document. So that actually creates three pages. That’s not quite what we need, but good enough for the user. So we don’t wanna burden the user with having to assemble the document manually. So we will do that automatically. We will assemble that through what we call our assemble activity, using our classification step. We will then extract the information from those IDs and then of course we’ll review the results together. But the idea is, is that a human’s gonna come into Vantage, crop that document for us, so we know where those IDs start and stop, and then we’ll automatically assemble them here.

So let me show you kind of this process. So we’re gonna go ahead and upload this ID PDF, and that’s going to go to our process skill.

Now this should happen pretty quick. What it’s gonna do is it’s gonna send us right into that cropping activity that you saw there on the workflow. So we would just hit our review button here. And what we’re gonna ask the end user is to look at this document and tell us where these IDs stop and start. So no big deal. We’re gonna crop this image here using our cropping tool. And all we need the end user to do is just tell us where these documents start and stop. So this looks like a good ID. This looks like a good ID. And lastly, this looks like a good ID as well. And we’re just gonna go ahead and apply the crop.

So this is what the software’s done now. So we have a document that came in and this document has three pages. Like I said, that’s not necessarily always ideal. Typically in downstream processes, we would actually want these to be three separate documents, not a document with three separate pages.

What we’re gonna do is once again, carry down the workflow. So we’re right here at the review and crop. Now we’re gonna tell the software to go ahead and assemble that for us, and then we’ll go ahead and extract. So let’s just kind of release this from our queue. We’ll save and close this. We don’t need to extract any data yet. And then we’ll go ahead and complete it.

Now this task will be completed. So what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna kind of see that here. The software’s gonna continue processing that image. And then what we will do is we will have a queue that shows three separate documents.

So this is now what we have. So we’ve cropped it. And now you can see here I have three separate documents, each of those that we’ve manually cropped here, but now we’ve classified them correctly as identity documents and we’ve extracted the data from them correctly. So we can kind of see here on these documents here. Not only do we know the document type, but obviously now that we know the document, we can use our intelligent document processing extraction technology to extract the critical details off of those documents. So then what happens from here on is really up to you as the citizen developer to take these documents over to data and perform interactions downstream.

But the critical part, once again, is knowing the workflow. Is we have this cropping mechanism that allows the end user to intervene and tell us where documents start and stop. And that’s all we’re asking that end user to do. And then the rest here, we will handle ourselves through our activities in the ABBYY Vantage Suite.

ABBYY Vantage Video – Address Parsing

Discover in this video how to perform Address Parsing in ABBYY Vantage.

Hello. Today I’d like to show you how we perform Address Parsing within ABBYY Vantage. So what I have here is obviously a very simplified version of a document that it has an address. And on this address we wanna extract the name, the street, the city, state, and zip.

What we’re gonna do is we’re gonna go ahead and create a brand new document skill in our Advanced Designer within Vantage. We’ll call this our Address Parsing Skill. And when we do that, the first thing we’re gonna do is we’re gonna go ahead and upload a document, just kind of as our reference document.

And the next thing we’ll do is we’ll go ahead and walk through the setup. We’ll go ahead and map some fields. When we map our fields here, we’re gonna have a few things. So we know that we’re gonna have a field that describes the address. So let’s just go ahead and start mapping some things here. We’re gonna call this the full address because it’s the whole thing. And then we know that we’re gonna want fields for each of these independent parts of the address. So let’s just go ahead and add some fields here for the name, the street, the city, state, and zip.

All right. Now that we have our fields set up, the one thing I like to do at this point is I like to make sure that we have our reference details completed as well. This gives the software the ability to compare what it extracts versus what we told it is really the truth. We call that our reference spot. And so what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna go ahead and find each of these fields just so the software when we do it automatically has something to compare itself against for the truth. So we know for the name, the name is gonna be located here. We know for the street. For the full street, we’re here. For the city, we are located here. For the state, we’re here. And of course for our zip, we are here. So we have the full address. But then of course we told the software what the truth is for the other fields that we wanted to automatically extract.

Now that we have that set up, let’s talk about the activities that we’re going to need. So we have within our software, the ability to extract based on rules. Then we will perform Address Parsing. Now the last part of the video will be to actually get the name on the address, which the Address Parsing Module does not give us, so we will use our Named Entity Recognition to get the name of the address.

So let’s go one by one here. Let’s go ahead and tell the software how to do the extraction. We want the full address. We want the software to know where to find the full address. So we’re gonna go ahead and just make sure we only map the full address here. And when we do that, we’re gonna go ahead and go to our search elements and we’re going to tell the software that we’re gonna draw this on the image.

So we’re telling the software, “Hey software, this is where we want you to pull the full address from.” Just because I know what’s gonna have to happen here. This is gonna be a full paragraph. So not just a single line of text, but we want the software to grab that whole region here. Now we have what’s called a paragraph of text, which is on that specific region on the document.

So at this point we’re gonna go ahead and test the activity. This should be a pretty obvious one for the software here. We’re just telling it where to pull that paragraph of text. We have a hundred percent results and that’s because the software now compares against the truth. If you remember back in one of the previous steps just a minute ago, we told the software where to find it. Now it’s telling us where it found it automatically and it’s gonna go ahead and tell us if there’s any difference, which in this case there is not.

So now we told the software where to find the full address. Now we want to teach it how to parse the address. So we’ll go ahead and add our Address Parsing option here. And the software’s gonna say, “Okay. Hey, where do I find the full address?” And we’re gonna say, “Hey, you find it from this field.” And of course we’re going to tell it the things that we know it will find. Now just out of experience, we won’t be able to find the name as part of the Address Parsing. We’re gonna come back and do that. So we’re gonna find street, city, state, and zip. And we’ll go ahead and set up our mapping here.

And what we will do here is we will go ahead and test the skill. So the software automatically comes with intelligence that can take that full address field and give us the result here. And now we have our results. We can see where the software was able to extract that data for us. And as you can see it found street, city, state, and zip. Of course it did not find names. So let’s go ahead and now that we know the software can find and parse the address, let’s go back and say let’s teach the software, how we can extract that name.

What we’re gonna do here is go ahead and use our Named Entity Recognition. This gives us the ability to reference the full address here, but in this case what we’re going to do is just grab the name from the documents. So we’ll call this the organization and the software is gonna use the full address and give us the organization here and put that into our name column. Let’s go ahead and test the skill now.

And now at this point we have a hundred percent accuracy. So the software’s using what we told it as the truth and now it’s going to extract the information on that name for us.

So at this point we have taught the software where to locate the full address. And then using our Address Parsing Activity, we were able to get the street, the city, state, zip, we could even get things like country. And then to actually get the entity on the address, we used our Named Entity Recognition. So we have just full complete control of how this Address Parsing takes place. Now what we could do is we could obviously deploy this skill like we do in other situations with the Advanced Designer and use this technique to get the address details and the entity on that address.

Hope you enjoyed this video. If you have any questions, please reach out to us.

ABBYY Vantage Video – Convert a Customer Purchase Order to an EDI 850 Format

Watch in our video how to use ABBYY Vantage to convert a customer purchase order to an EDI 850 Format.

Hello. Today I’d like to show you how we can perform OCR on an incoming customer purchase order and create an EDI 850 file out of that customer purchase order. So what we have here is a very standard flow in ABBYY Vantage. We’re gonna bring a document in, we’ll of course extract information from that purchase order. And what you’ll see here is that we will generate that EDI file. And then for today’s demo, we’re actually gonna place that EDI file as a field to the actual document, just so you can visually see what that file looks like and you can also see the actual document as well. For today’s demo, we’re gonna throw that into a review queue. Of course this is optional in any traditional implementation. But for today’s demo, we’re gonna throw that into a review queue so that we can see the results.

Now I have a pretty basic customer purchase order that I’ll show you. And just kind of what you would expect. It has customer information, it has shipping information, of course it has line items and those sorts of things. So what I’m gonna do is we’re gonna go ahead and put that into our try any skill page. We’re gonna drop that in. We’re gonna go ahead and select our 850 skill.

And that purchase order will now be processed. ABBYY Vantage is gonna extract that information and then eventually we will get a link so that we can review that document in a manual review queue.

Okay, that document is now completed. So we can click our review button here. And what I’ll wanna show you here is, of course we have the document and the purchase order in the system, but just for fun, we went ahead and threw that EDI string here onto the actual document itself, just so we can see that and kind of see it in play with how this document works. So we have obviously our header information and then of course our transactional information here.

So this is a very standard approach. Now what we do with this EDI file is a hundred percent configurable. We can pass the actual file to some downstream service. We can save the 850 file independently besides the document. So we just have a lot of control. The secret here is that we wanna get that document in EDI 850 format so that we can process downstream in an automation step.

ABBYY Vantage Video – Convert an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) to an EDI 835 Format

Discover in our video how to convert an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) document to an EDI 835 Format in ABBYY Vantage.

Hello. Today I’d like to show you our EDI Connector, specifically targeting EDI Format 835 to process, typically an Explanation of Benefits document. What you see here is a very typical process within ABBYY Vantage. So a document or EOB in this case will come in. We will extract the critical information off of that Explanation of Benefits document and we will generate an 835 format to represent the data that we’ve extracted from that document. So pretty standard flow here from an OCR perspective.

So what I have is an EOB. The EOB has typically header information. So details here at the top and then of course we have our claim information or the transactional detail. So what we’re gonna do is put this into ABBYY Vantage and then what we expect on the output is an 835 formatted file.

So let’s go ahead and do that. I’m gonna use our try any skill site. I’m just gonna go ahead and drag and drop that sample. I will select the Process Skill that we’re going to use today, which is our 835 Connector Skill, and the software will start processing that document for us.

That document is now processed and let’s go ahead and see the output file here that we have for it. I’ll share it from this screen. And here’s an example of that EDI output for that specific file. So we have our 835 format there. We have our different segments here outlined in the EDI format that’s expected, and we can now use that EDI information to populate our backend systems, or pass through our downstream step of the automation process here.

So this is a really cool experience, a very simple way to convert an Explanation of Benefits document into a very standard file format that can be used in your downstream EDI steps.

ABBYY Vantage Video – Convert a Purchase Invoice to an EDI 810 Format

Watch in this demo how to use ABBYY Vantage to convert a Purchase Invoice to an EDI 810 Format.

Hello. Today I’d like to show you our EDI Connector for ABBYY Vantage. And with this EDI Connector we’ll do, it will give us the ability to take an incoming document, in this case an invoice and produce an EDI 810 formatted file. So a document’s gonna come in through a sample site that we have built. We’re gonna extract the invoice details. We’re gonna create that EDI 810 file. And then we’ll produce that here for us to look at through the output stage.

So what I have here is just a very common invoice. We have some header information, we have some line items. And what I’m gonna do is go ahead and upload that to ABBYY Vantage. Just gonna go ahead and upload a document. And we’re gonna go ahead and select our skill. And what’s gonna happen here is the software’s going to take that document in, it’s gonna extract the details, and then it’s gonna produce that EDI file.

Okay, that file has now been fully processed and I just got my EDI file for it. And I’ll share that with you here on this screen. And what you’ll see here is I have my header information as described in the 810 requirement. And then of course we have line item details also described here as well. So what we can do with that file, we can be very creative. We can call an external systems, we can put it on a file directory to be consumed by another third party. But the secret sauce here is that we have that EDI format and can utilize that in our downstream steps.
