Great solution for copy and past PDF ☺It works super easy en friendly. A really good solution to copy files from a PDF to an Excel file. ☹You cannot upload more than 30 pages. So you need to cut your pdf in pieces and then upload the cutted pdf separately.

Great and Time Saving We have reduced our time entering information by half by having only the relevant information extracted so we don't have to open and read the PDF. ☺Being able to search for a marker to extract the data after it ☹The refine search function was a little confusing at first but with some time playing around with it I got the hang of it.

It works only in specific cases It's a bit tricky sometimes to use it but it saves some time when it comes to entering big documents. Also you need to consider if its worth it to enter some information with the software because uploading can take more time than entering manually sometimes ☺It really helps when it comes to entering big amounts of information for a document. ☹In some documents, it does not work really well, and sometimes create a new template is a bit annoying. but once you have its really helpful

It do what I need ☺ The product works and is stable. Once you get started using it, it's easy to set up new documents. We scan a number of documents, and with the program we have the opportunity to scale processes that are otherwise manual. ☹Nothing.

The best tool to structure your data from incoming documents ☺Really easy to setup and use. Super accurate to find the data in different document formats, even if it's not always in the same location every time. Best thing is being able to get the information in an easy to use format to then process however you like ☹It would be great to see the OCR be able to handle written responses and some more integrations with Office products

This product eliminates menial tasks I like it because it does things that Mailparser can't do. ☺Automation because it saves us a ton of time. ☹Sometimes the webhooks don't always seem to work with my target program.

Docparser review ☺Easy to use and integrate with existing software ☹Slightly expensive but worth the money if you use it to save time

Docparser saves my team hundreds of hours and helps identify new business opportunities Every month my team would get a 700+ page PDF report with project status updates. Each page was a different project. Some of these were old projects and not of interest. Some were projects we were already working on and needed to keep tracking. Some were new projects that we needed to engage with. Searching and splitting up this document manually was inefficient and we were missing out on important projects. I started searching for solutions, from Python scripts to PowerQuery to software packages/services. 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 savings hundreds of hours of frustration and not missing anything important. ☺Very easy to setup because of helpful guides. I was able to "test drive" the software using the free tier, to make sure it could produce EXACTLY what I wanted. This was a huge help to evaluate vs other products and help make our decision. Now that I have my parsing rules set up, it's extremely easy to run my big report once a month and distribute to my team. ☹Bit of a learning curve to get the parsing rules set up correctly. I needed to attend their help webinar to understand what I was doing wrong (but then got lots of help).

Docparser helps Docparser has made it possible to automate a number of recurring human actions ☺Easy to use and to implement in your own software ☹User-friendliness and easy mode to scale up

Great Platform ☺We no longer have to enter every single invoice into our Business System. With Webhook integration, we are fully integrated from a manufacturer's invoice PDF to our Accounts Payable interface. ☹Sometimes Docparser detects lines as a character, but that is mostly expected from an OCR platform.

Docparser vs Nanonets: Which Parser to Choose?

Docparser and Nanonets have many similarities along with some key differences. Firstly, Docparser comes with pre-built templates for commonly used documents such as:

  • Invoices
  • Purchase orders
  • Application forms
  • Standardized contracts
  • Shipping orders
  • Delivery notes
  • Work orders
  • Generated reports
  • Etc.

When you use Nanonets, you may have to build a custom Model (the equivalent of parsing rules in Docparser) for these types of documents.

Furthermore, while both Docparser and Nanonets allow for direct integration with cloud applications like Zapier or Google Sheets, this feature is included in all Docparser plans –whereas it’s reserved to the Enterprise plan in Nanonets.

Speaking of pricing plans, Docparser allows you to choose from a variety of pricing plans the one that best fits your needs and budget. Nanonets, however, does not include an intermediate plan between their Free plan and the Pro plan, with the latter being priced at $499 per month.
