What Does SortSpoke Do?

SortSpoke reduces the labour cost of extracting data from documents by 80-90%. It works especially well on unstructured documents without any templates or programming, and with lower error rates than humans. Anywhere you have staff reading a document to find specific data, SortSpoke can help do it more efficiently.

Incoming documents are classified and data is extracted from these documents according to your unique requirements. SortSpoke is fully customizable and there is no limit on varieties of documents or number/type of fields extracted. Finally, the extracted data is exported to your database, workflow, document management system or spreadsheet.

What are some examples of structured/semi structured/unstructured documents?
  • Structured documents: certificates, identification, and forms.
  • Semi structured documents: invoices, appraisals, and financial statements.
  • Unstructured documents: contracts, correspondence, emails.
