Get to know Docparser

If you've ever used, you'll feel right at home in Docparser. You can start from scratch by adding a new parser and uploading some sample files to it. Only add files that are similar—perhaps purchase orders from different customers, or a few responses to the same survey. Or, you can get started faster by choosing pre-made templates to process invoices, purchase orders, applications, reports, bank statements, work orders, shipping notices, and more

Then, you can add parsing rules to teach Docparser what text you want to copy from your documents, or customize pre-set rules from the built-in templates. Each rule is designed to copy one field or table. Fields are simplest: just select a section of the PDF document or image, and Docparser will copy the text under that selection. Table data will have you first add column dividers to the document to show where your table's breaks are, and then you'll add extra parsing rules to teach Docparser which text should and shouldn't be copied.

Either way, Docparser can clean up your text to make it look great in your other apps. It can find and replace text, remove lines or white spaces, and use rules to stop and start copying data from your selection. It can also normalize addresses, split first and last names, and find common items like email addresses, links, and phone numbers in your text. And it can even recognize barcodes and QR codes from documents, extracting the text from them and including it in your final copied data.

Once you're done adding rules for everything you want copied from your documents, you can start adding your documents to the parsing queue. You can drag-and-drop documents into Docparser, or send them as email attachments. Or, with Zapier's Docparser integrations, you can add new files from Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, and more to Docparser to process automatically. Then, with the same integrations, you can save your parsed text to your favorite apps: spreadsheets, email apps, databases, and more. Or, you can download your parsed data in spreadsheet formats to analyze on your own.

PDF documents don't have to be annoying, and you definitely don't need to hand-type in survey responses and more from your scanned PDF and image files. Instead, let Docparser do it. Teach it what's most important from your documents, connect integrations to send your files to Docparser, and you'll never have to manually type data from an image again.
