Bank statements contain valuable financial data required to make certain crucial decisions in organizations. Usually, bank statements are in PDF or paper form. To obtain data in a spreadsheet, the best choice you have is to copy it from PDF file to Google Docs or MS Word, and then to the spreadsheet format. Even after this tedious task, the uncertainty of the data being in the correct format prevails. To help save time and human effort, Docsumo allows quick data extraction from bank statements using OCR. With Docsumo, you can convert pdf bank statements to excel spreadsheets with negligible chances of error.

Technologies and methodologies adopted by Docsumo

In 2021, lenders are moving away from time-consuming manual data entry and adopting digitization in their processes. They need to process tons of bank statements, income verification and tax documents -  it is very important that this process of getting information is also as quick and easy as possible.

Docsumo uses multiple data extraction technologies to automate bank statement processing ensuring improved accuracy and turn-around time. Computer vision is one such AI technology that has seen exponential advancement over the last few years. Along with that, Docsumo also uses OCR-Optical Character Recognition that analyzes printed text and converts scanned images into a form that can be easily processed by the computer.

Alongside this, Docsumo utilizes a Machine Learning OCR that uses a trained model to encode thousands of rules for determining the meaning of the content. This method is used when it is not possible to define all types of formats. Docsumo is capable of handling a large variety of input formats. It supports PNG, JPEG, TIFF, and PDF documents and also, the deep learning techniques provide great accuracy even for low-quality uploads.
