Problem

To find an end-to-end automated solution for a leading shipping company based out of North America, that simplifies and streamlines the entire manual process of extracting data from pdfs and entering in their application.

Challenges

  • Raised error rate due to manual intervention.
  • Cost penalty associated with the process is high.
  • The turnaround time is slow.
  • Leads to disengagement of employees from work as the information is complex and repetitive

The internal team undergoes immense pressure due to the extensive workload on data processing. Streamlining an efficient process of reading and writing data from PDF is a colossal task in itself.

The manual workforce faces a herculean task of processing loads of documents a day. This is both time consuming, inefficient and leaves scope for error.
