In today’s data-driven world, businesses and organisations are drowning in a sea of documents, ranging from invoices and contracts to research papers and customer feedback. Efficiently extracting meaningful information from these documents is paramount for informed decision-making and streamlined operations. This is where the strategic use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) comes into play. In this blog post, we’ll explore how your company can harness the potential of AI for document analysis and the best ways to implement this tech in 2024.
Traditional document analysis methods are often time-consuming, error-prone, and inefficient. Manually sifting through stacks of paperwork or digital files can lead to bottlenecks, missed opportunities, and increased operational costs. It’s time to revolutionise your document management approach, and AI is the key.
According to PWC, the most basic approach will save 20-50% of time currently consumed
One of the most crucial aspects of document analysis is data extraction. AI-powered systems can effortlessly identify and extract relevant information from various document types. Whether it’s extracting customer names from surveys or invoice details from scanned documents, AI can do it swiftly and accurately.
Imagine streamlining your accounts payable process by automatically extracting invoice details, such as invoice numbers, due dates, and amounts, from a stack of incoming invoices. This not only reduces manual errors but also speeds up the entire workflow.
Natural Language Processing is a game-changer for document analysis. NLP algorithms can comprehend and analyse the text within documents, making it possible to classify, summarise, and even sentiment analyse large volumes of text data.
For example, an AI-powered system can be trained to scan customer feedback forms and identify sentiment trends. This allows businesses to quickly spot areas that need improvement and take immediate action, enhancing customer satisfaction.
Organising documents efficiently is another challenge, especially when dealing with large document repositories. AI can categorise documents based on their content, making it easier to access and manage critical information.
For instance, an AI system can classify research papers into different categories or industries, making it simpler for researchers to find relevant studies quickly. This capability can save countless hours of manual categorisation.
Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of AI-driven document analysis is automated decision-making. AI can be programmed to make decisions based on the analysed content. For example, it can automatically approve or reject loan applications by assessing the applicant’s financial documents.
Why bespoke? Currently multiple options exist that can provide one or two simple outputs for documents. They exist in the form of bots or platforms. From experience, and working with clients, these either fulfil only a small part of what we are trying to build, or do many more features that we need, that we also have to pay for. Building the exact ‘use case’ is not only more cost effective in the long run, it allows you to get control. The system can then effortlessly fit exactly in to your existing process, dramatically reducing training and integration, compared to an off the shelf product.
Also if the system needs tweaking 10%, then instead of hoping it exists in the software you purchased, you can build it, exactly as you need.
Bespoke often is the cost effective way.
1. Consult – Talk through the document type, content and people who use it. Explaining the process is essential to build an analysis system that matches up with your current workflow, instead of interrupting it.
2. Design – Consultants and experts can then design the best solution, including architecture, server requirements, and all the technical aspects to ensure a best delivery
3. Sign off – review of the proposal, typically best approach is to build and minimum viable product (MVP) to get the system running ASAP.
4. Development – depending on the complexity the system gets build, testing during the development, to ensure that the system, when finished, is perfect for integration.
5. Integration – Testing is essential, once signed off using test data and users, the system can soft launch, being reviewed and monitored.
