Bank statements are crucial documents as they contain valuable financial data required to make decisions. 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 to document (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 extraction of data from your bank statements and converting them to spreadsheets with negligible chances of error.
Technologies and Methodologies adopted by Docsumo
In today's corporate world where everything is digitized and each company has tons of documents to process and extract data from, it is very important that this process of getting information is also as quick and easy as possible.
Computer vision is one such AI technology that has seen exponential advancement over the last few years. 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.

At Docsumo, we use a combination of neural networks and reverse image searches to extract data from documents. Thus, entries are extracted directly by OCR. However, you can add entries manually as well, if needed.
4. Field Validation
The right data type is assigned for accurate and clean data for better value extraction. Using advanced Deep Learning, computer vision, and natural language processing, Docsumo validates and extracts data so that it can directly be consumed by any other software/APIs.
5. Review and approve the suggestions
When you upload the document, Docsumo engine will automatically extract and suggest a few key-value pairs from the document. You can either use those suggestions or discard them. When you click ‘Approve’, the file gets saved.

Docsumo offers you the flexibility to export data in whichever format you want. You can either download the extracted data in CSV, JSON, or XML formats or you can use an API to send extracted data to other software or databases.
7. Scale document Processing / Multiple document Processing
If you want to select more documents of the same type as a bank statement, upload in the same template so that the document gets processed on similar lines. Also, you can create your own document type as per requirements.
Docsumo is capable of processing scanned, skewed, blurred, noisy, wavy, and low-quality documents with a comparatively good level of accuracy. So don’t worry, whether your bank statement is in scanned/pdf/image form, or is in a low quality format, Docsumo is here to your rescue. Docsumo’s advanced technology can read non-standardized documents with 95% accuracy. And thus, Docsumo is trusted by various companies in the banking sector.
