How Docparser Works
1. Choose a template
Docparser has a large library of quick-start templates for common documents: invoices, purchase orders, bank statements, forms, etc. Choose a template that matches your document or create a Custom Template from scratch.
2. Upload sample documents
To create your document parser, you need at least one document sample. The more samples you upload, the better. You can upload documents directly, drag and drop them, send them as email attachments, import them from your document storage provider, or use our REST API.
3. Create Parsing Rules
Docparser’s algorithms follow instructions called Parsing Rules to identify data fields and extract them. Our quick-start templates will automatically create a set of Parsing Rules based on your sample documents. You can freely edit these Rules or create Custom Rules from scratch. To create a Rule, outline the relevant data field on your document, then add filters to refine the parsing results and formatting as needed.
4. Download or export your parsed data
After Docparser processes your documents, you can download parsed data as a file in XLS, CSV, JSON, or XML format, or export it to a cloud application that you use. Move your data anywhere in the cloud via integrations like Zapier and automate all your document-based workflows.

Why Choose Docparser?
OCR for scanned documents
Monarch does not have an OCR feature and can only extract data from digital documents. Docparser, on the other hand, has a powerful OCR engine that allows it to extract data from both digital and paper documents. Capture data from documents scanned to PDF or image format, and speed up your workflows to save time and money.
Create custom parsers with no coding
Create your first Parser based on a template or from scratch with custom parsing rules.
Build multiple Parsers for all your parsing needs: invoices, bank statements, forms, reports, etc. Then watch as Docparser processes every new batch of documents and moves data where it needs to be.
Send your data anywhere in the cloud
In addition to downloading parsed data as a file, you can also export it to cloud applications like Google Sheets or Salesforce. Our third-party integrations, like Zapier and Microsoft Power Automate, let you send data to thousands of apps, helping you automate any workflow that requires data entry.
Easy to access and use
No need to install software or meet specific system requirements. Access Docparser through your web browser from any device.
A data capture solution for any organization
Whether your organization is small or large, you can use Docparser for all your data capture needs, without paying for more than what you need.
How Docparser Works in Action
What Customers Have to Say
“A perfect tool for business automation”
“I researched and tried several tools available for conversion of PDF to data, some good but very expensive and with a stiff learning curve, while others failing to meet the promises. Then I discovered Docparser. Within minutes I was able to map a requisition and export it to excel. Being so visual, training the team was no issue either. The guys just ran away with it and we tested some complex seemingly randomly formatted PO and invoices using sub tables. Mapping forms for Minor variations was no issue either using templates. Used API without any difficulties. Overall a great product.”
— Milind P., Small Business Owner
“Docparser saves my team hundreds of hours and helps identify new business opportunities”
“I looked at several companies, including Docparser. I attended webinars and had demos. By being able to try our Docparser’s free tier with some sample documents, I was able to figure out that it could do exactly what I wanted. I got some help from the user support team and now I’ve got my parsing rules perfected. So every month when the 700+ page PDF comes out, I can pull out the information my team needs and export it all to Excel. We’re saving hundreds of hours of frustration and not missing anything important.”
— Matt H. Senior Outreach Manager
“Amazing time saving software”
“This software has allowed us to extract data from multiple report documents and put it in one easy to analyse spreadsheet. It has saved us weeks of time doing it manually and eliminated the risk of human error.”
— Matilda L. Project Manager
