Intelligent Document Processing

Intelligent Document Processing or IDP is AI-powered technology that combines Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. IDP is a solution that scans, reads, extracts, categorizes, and organizes various document types such as papers, PDFs, Word Docs, Spreadsheets etc.

Every organization needs to extract data from various types of documents and input the data into multiple systems. The main function for IDP is to extract this information without human intervention. Manual data entry is now a thing of the past at least with structured documents and as IDP evolves, it is getting to a stage of extracting information very accurately even from un-structured or handwritten documents.

Intelligent Document Processing can be used across various departments in an organization. The solution is template and language agnostic, and the AI is constantly learning and evolving at the back end so the more document types that are processed, the accuracy and efficiency gets better.

With IDP, organizations do not need to deploy data entry operators to manually extract information from various documents. This not only saves time and money but also improves employee satisfaction as the human workforce is now redeployed to more high-end tasks. For organizations that process large volumes of data, IDP is the perfect solution as it offers speed and accuracy.


Valenta Helps Midsized Companies with Intelligent Document Processing

We can help get IDP projects implemented, we bring process and experience to Digital Transformation projects

Working with Valenta for Intelligent Document Processing
Large companies have been taking advantage of IDP since it became available.  Midsized companies and small businesses have been slower to deploy Intelligent Document Processing.  For most businesses this is not due to a lack of desire.  Not deploying IDP typically comes down to not having access to the required skill sets.  IDP is a newer technology.  Developers and staff can be hard to find and also be expensive.  Valenta is 100% focused on midsized companies and small business.  We have local Managing Partners in cities and countries across the world.  Our Managing Partners are digital transformation experts.  They work with other local partners and SMEs or subject matter experts plus nearshore and offshore developers to deliver best in class Intelligent Document Processing solutions.  Digital transformation that makes sense for midsized companies is their mission. 

Valenta IDP Processes and Methodology

Intelligent Document Processing Use-Cases

Finance and Accounting

Finance and Accounting

Invoice Processing is the biggest use-case for most organizations

Human Resources

Employee Data (On-Boarding, Off-Boarding), Hiring (Resume Screening) etc.
audits, legal

Legal Compliance

Retrieve information from Contracts and Agreements, Process legal info etc.


Extract information from Patient Records and Medical Forms
Construction Project Management, Documentation


Extract Information from Pension Forms, Tax Declarations, Process Applications and Permits etc.


Process Claims, Detect Fraud, Policy Agreements and much more

Steps of Intelligent Document Processing


Load: Upload documents into the System manually or through RPA


Digitize: use OCR to digitize the text and determine location


Classify: Classify the documents from the list


Extract: Choose the most suitable extractors based on document type


Validate: Human intervention can be deployed for further validation


Export: Send / Export the extracted info for further processing

There human validation is usually the final check point, and this dependency can reduce over time as more documents and trained and processed by the AI. A combination of NLP, Unsupervised Learning, Deep Learning, ML, Google Vision, OCR are all deployed to produce the best results.

Unleash the Power of Intelligent Document Processing



Work with Valenta to define your Automation Strategy. Most Companies have started using IDP but struggle to derive value from this solution and that’s primarily due to the lack of understanding of how the technology works and having unrealistic expectations.



Intelligent Document Processing or IDP is AI-powered technology that combines Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. IDP is a solution that scans, reads, extracts, categorizes, and organizes various document types such as papers, PDFs, Word Docs, Spreadsheets etc.



IDP implementation in an organization increases productivity and profitability. The digital workforce allows the human workforce to focus on more revenue-generating and high-end tasks that create more value for the business and the end customer.


Business Goals

At Valenta, our team of Automation and AI Developers and Business Analysts work closely with you to identify your pain points, understand your business landscape, and recommend suitable IDP solutions to meet your business goals and objectives.

Common Benefits of Intelligent Document Processing

  • Enhance accuracy – Through IDP, you can reduce the human error rate and increase processing speed of the extraction significantly. Manual Data entry is expensive and prone to error.
  • Lower Costs - IDP is very cost effective when compared to manual processing. The solution integrates seamlessly with various applications and when combined with RPA, it’s a fully automated process which also increase efficiency.
  • Employee Satisfaction – IDP improves Employee Satisfaction by allowing them to focus on higher end and revenue generation activities rather than basic data entry work which is repetitive in nature and time consuming.

Valenta Assists with Intelligent Document Processing and Implementation

Our approach
Valenta believes in designing, modernizing, and building mission Critical technology systems which most clients depend on every day. We are a focused, independent company, implementing Valenta’s Business-Unit Prototype, we make sure that strategic requirements are covered, and that the solution is built from end-to-end from a chosen business function.

Here are the three simple steps we take for Automation implementations :


Proof of Concept

Introduction: The Proof of Concept satisfies critical business as it validates the solution.

POC Goal: To help companies validate the opportunity hypothesis and get the green light for developing a full-fledged solution.

Key Benefit: Do not have to commit to Go Live if the solution does not work

Importance: POC allows a Business to test out the Solution on its own applications and processes therefore giving stakeholders the power to test the solution before having to purchase it.


Full Implementation

In this phase, new scenarios are added, and more focus is put on common understanding, consistency, and the accuracy.

Based on the learning experiences, new enhancements and features are proposed and implemented.

Work is focused on further adoption at the same time making sure that settled users are not impacted by the changes.
