Acord 131(Umbrella/Excess section) is a standardized form that has details about liability coverage, affording extended coverage and/or high excess. These forms are often processed manually, however, underwriters and companies are finding ways to automate the Acord 131 processing and make it move along faster. Using ICR technology, automating the forms for data extraction streamlines the whole process with improved accuracy more than 98% and processing time reduced by a factor of 10.
Acord 131, Umbrella/Excess Section, holds information about liability coverage, affording extended coverage and/or high limit excess. It’s a separate policy over and above other basic liability policies of the same insured. A complete Umbrella/Excess Application has both Acord 125 (the Applicant Information Section) and Acord 131 (the Umbrella/Excess Section).
It is important to note that some details about the applicant are only found in the Applicant Information Section. Most of the details for the Identification Section need to match the data given in the Applicant Information Section of Acord 125. Though the data is a match for the data found on the Acord 125, the companies still need to complete it.
Many companies separate these applications via a line of business because of rating purposes. Leaving this portion of the application incomplete makes it hard to keep track of the complete account.
You can find the underwriter details at the top. This section contains the basic details offered by agencies such as Policy Number, Effective Date, Code, and Named Insured. The transaction type gets listed right below this, and it has to be filled up duly. Ideally, Acord 131 has the following sections:
Policy information has check-boxes for the transaction type, limit of liability, and retailed limit. Make sure you put “yes or no” on the section of First Dollar Defense. Proceed with the document by filling each section in the order given above.
Each Acord131 application has a particular framework that is needed to be followed for gathering and communicating major details to clients. It gets so much easier to automate Acord applications when you have data capture solutions and their smart filters, advanced OCR, and batch upload features. One such software solution is Docsumo.

In today’s dynamic business world, filing and archiving official documents in the digital form makes it handy, and works wonders in the future or in unforeseen circumstances.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is the technology to convert an image of text into machine-readable text. It is the underlying technology for various data extraction solutions including Intelligent Document Processing. However, OCR is not smart enough to figure out the context in a document - it works simply by distinguishing text pixels from the background and finding a pattern. This limitation could cause inaccuracy in captured data that could directly impact the output of your data extraction model.
Accounts payable is a key financial function for any business. Corporations can have thousands of suppliers; even for relatively smaller businesses, the number of suppliers could be in hundreds. All the invoices they receive from these suppliers come in multiple formats, layouts, and templates - some semi-structured, some unstructured. Therefore, firms expend time and resources to capture invoice information through manual data entry and verification of accounts payable. Manual data entry is not feasible in the long run, definitely not on a large scale. Before we talk about how intelligent invoicing solves the problems associated with manual invoicing, let’s discuss the challenges in much detail.
As most of an organization's information is available in an unstructured format, processing it requires an automated system that can handle documents with minimum human interaction. OCR is one such technology, but its scope is limited as it requires human interaction and is highly dependent on the layout and structure of the document to be processed.These limitations are overcome by Intelligent Data Extraction.Using artificial intelligence, the Intelligent Data Extraction technology extracts data from documents and transforms it into useful information through the extraction process. It functions as a singular tool for extracting information from any type of document and aids in optimizing company operations.
