Docparser: Alternative to Google Drive OCR

Google Drive has a free OCR feature that can convert image-based files to text. But it often takes a long time to process documents and requires heavy editing. Plus, you can’t OCR multiple files and there is a file size limit of 2MB.

So if you are looking for an alternative to Google Drive OCR, Docparser has just what you need. Our Google Drive integration lets you import documents from Google Drive, extract the data inside with near-perfect accuracy, and send it wherever you want.

Here’s what Docparser does better than Google Drive OCR:

  • Faster Google Drive OCR scan
  • More accurate Google Drive data extraction
  • OCR Google Drive documents in batches
  • Process documents of a size up to 20MB each

Why Use Docparser’s Google Drive Integration?

Fast and accurate data extraction API

Docparser is a no-code data extraction tool that can identify and extract data from documents with higher speed and accuracy than Google Drive OCR. You won’t have to spend precious time proofreading and editing extracted text.

Automatic Google Drive extraction

Once you set up your Google Drive integration, Docparser will check your Google Drive folder every 5-10 minutes for new documents. Whenever a new Google doc is found, the integration imports it to your Parser and extracts data, without you having to log in to your Docparser dashboard.

Docparser can automatically move your parsed data to any cloud app through our 1,500+ integrations. Additionally, you can download your parsed data as a spreadsheet file.

Automate your document-based workflows

Customer Success Stories


Google Data API

“Unlike other systems we looked at, Docparser gives us flexibility and control over how the data is being extracted. We set our parser to extract the information we need from each file and automatically connect it to a Google Spreadsheet shared by our management teams. This allows all the managers to see our current workflow in real time and make appropriate changes to schedules, inventory etc. Our turnaround time is shorter, and customers are even happier than they were before.”

OCR PDF Documents

“Our data ingestion workflow needs to be flexible to support the variety and the ever-changing format of data sources while lowering the effort to maintain our processes. Docparser is essential to balance both aspects. The Docparser API and webhooks allowed us to integrate the PDF extraction task directly in our workflow. When a file format changes, we use Docparser user interface to quickly and easily update a parser settings.”

OCR Extraction from Scanned Documents

“Docparser was the perfect solution for us. It took less than an hour to evaluate and test the initial functionality and know that we had stumbled upon a powerful OCR system that would solve the pains we were having in our business. Moritz and his team have been great to work with even though their software is so powerful we seldom need to speak to them. But when we do they are quick to respond.

We have been able to create hundreds of ‘parsers’ that take our document images and convert them to data that we map over to our database for automatic entry. The API provided by docparser has allowed us to create a seamless integration to our system that has helped increase our data entry efficiency by over 35%. Their interface is simple enough that my own staff creates the powerful parsers that extract the data from the images we collect.”
