    ElectroNeek RPA can help you speed up tasks related to document recognition and data extraction. Our bots can automatically recognize data from scanned files, PDFs, images, etc. and enter it in an Excel file, database, some service or anywhere else you need it.

    In this example, our bot will search for scanned ACORD 25 insurance forms in a folder, recognize the data and save it to an Excel file.

    The bot looks for files in a folder, loops through them, recognizing all the data from scanned forms, extracts data and saves it in a results folder in an Excel file.

    This loop can be easily tweaked to gather information from other documents and compare the data from multiple different forms for the same individual. For example, the bot could automatically check that the full name listed across formal documents is the same.
