A guide to automating data capture from reports, payroll or any other HR-related document into actionable format

Documents act as proof of records and help to keep track of all the official activities of the company. HR Documents are vital to ensure the smooth working of business administration and a stable Internal Control System. They function to record all the transactions and activities revolving around the organizational needs.

HR has to parse enormous amounts of documents on a daily basis. From the onboarding procedure to the exit process, even today, in most organizations,  HR manually handles all of them, which is tedious. A proficient documentation process is the foundation of a successful business.

In today’s dynamic business world, filing and archiving official documents in the digital form makes it handy, and works wonders in the future or in unforeseen circumstances. Thus, there is a need for an effective tool to convert these documents into an actionable format for organized storage and retrieval.

There are several documents that HR has to deal with and, so are challenges with each of them:

Challenges: The significant drawback of manually processing information is that it is a challenging task, and takes a great deal of time and energy of the HR or candidate. As there are a huge volume of papers, this can cause bottlenecks, delays in responding and inefficiencies. Most documents are usually scanned to PDF files and uploaded into the system. Thus, classification and searching of right content in the documents within the system turns out to be a challenging task

Solution: Digitization of documents is a strategic endeavour that is necessary to tackle such issues. Docsumo provides automated document processing that ultimately results in digitized and streamlined document handling.  With the help of advanced OCR technology and computer vision, it has facilitated automatic type detection and indexing based on their structure and content.

For example:

  • Performance reports and employee records comprise complex data and need to be structured into business ready data, which is ultimately integrated into the workflows of the organization.
  • Resumes are separated by keywords and sorted accordingly. Next, they are recognized and validated by specifying document types and attributes. Using Docsumo you can design a system for searching desirable candidate profiles from resumes. Docsumo has various pre-built tools that allow it to create and define information architectures that can be used for similar documents.
  • In payrolls, the information of a candidate can be validated with a click rather than manual extraction of the same. Also, digitization can create a centralized system, with more effectiveness to access and take up less storage in the database.
