How does the automatic document separation of invoices work?

In this article, you will learn how Finmatics' automatic document separation works and how settings can be customised.

What are the advantages of automatic document separation?

The digitization of paper documents starts with the scanning process. As a result, the scanner produces a document in PDF, tiff or other image formats. This document can contain several hundreds of pages and invoices. In the past, without Finmatics' automatic page separation, the user had to manually perform page separation for each invoice.

Automatic document separation

As soon as the self-learning software from Finmatics receives a file or document with multiple invoices, the artificial intelligence can recognise the beginning and end of an invoice based on historical data. The AI checks each page to see whether it is the first page and separates the document accordingly. Barcodes or manual page separation are a thing of the past.

Default settings

The default settings are stored as follows for the different transmission paths:

  • Web upload: Can be set by the user by ticking the box
  • Web scanner: Switched on by default
  • Smartphone scan: Turned off by default
  • E-mail: Turned off by default

In case you want to change the default settings for your office, for a client or for a special process, please send an e-mail to support@finmatics.com.
