Classification scenarios

The ABBYY FlexiCapture classification feature can be used to determine:

  • Document types (e.g. you can set up the program to sort incoming documents into invoices and passports)
  • Document variants (e.g. you can set up the program to distinguish invoices from different vendors or driver's licenses issued in different states)
  • Where one document ends and another document begins (e.g. you can set up the program to divide the pages of documents of each  type into the "first page" and "all other pages")

The ABBYY FlexiCapture classification feature can be used to implement the following scenarios:

  • Automatic sorting of incoming documents

Example: A company receives the following two types of documents — invoices and contracts. The job of ABBYY FlexiCapture is to automatically separate documents of one type from the other. The sorted documents are then forwarded to the appropriate departments responsible for their processing. Invoices should not be forwarded to the legal department, as this will distract the lawyers from contracts and delay the processing of the misplaced invoices by the accounting department.

  • Assembly of page images into documents followed by automatic sorting

Example: A company scans pages but they are not assembled into documents during scanning. Instead, the classification feature is used to classify the pages. Then ABBYY FlexiCapture assembles the classified pages into documents and determines the type of each document.  

  • Detection of documents that need to be processed

Example: A company receives a PDF file which contains various documents related to a particular case, such as a mortgage application. The job of ABBYY FlexiCapture is to detect documents of certain types (e.g. passports) and to extract fields only from that type of document, saving the remaining pages a searchable PDF file.

  • Processing support requests

Example: A bank receives various types of support requests from its customers. Support requests are automatically classified based on the their content (e.g. new payment details, bounced payment, loss of a credit card, etc.). Urgent requests are separated from non-urgent ones and forwarded to the respective support specialist.
