Intelligent Document Processing (IDP)

Go beyond OCR with AI‑based document processing.

Process large volumes of data, fast.

Rapid Setup.

Leverage pre-trained AI models for rapid deployment.

Accurate Extraction.

IDP offers the highest accuracy rates on a flexible AI platform.

Getting Smarter Everyday.

Accelerate ROI with AI that continuously learns from human corrections.

Powerful Automation.

Eliminate manual document processing in any workflow.

We saw immediate value after implementing the Appian IDP solution. By extracting data from thousands of legacy documents and linking it to low-code data within Appian, users now have access to critical data in seconds rather than hours or days.
