Anthem is one of the largest health insurance providers in the United States. After a medical provider submits documents to Anthem’s provider portal, the documents enter a data store and are sent to a digital-processing function powered by Amazon Textract. Inside this function, Amazon Textract uses optical character recognition (OCR) to extract data and uses machine learning to automatically index and classify each document. The processed claim is then made available to Anthem stakeholders.
"We hope technologies like Amazon Textract will help Anthem become a digital-first organization.”

They understand technology as a means and they use it to transform companies, helping them to make their processes more efficient and agile, obtaining data intelligence, defining technological architectures and improving the experience of their end customers with high-value digital solutions.
"We saw a gap in automating extraction of semi-structured data to build a RPA software. The necessary data was on invoices, orders, pay slips, and delivery notes that end-users need to send through the software. Previously, we were using legacy OCR and template based designs that required manual effort or intervention. Using Amazon Textract as a foundation and core component of Reexdoc, our AI-powered and cloud-based data extraction platform, we were able to develop an in-house AI model per document type that allowed us to extract certain fields and send the data to the end-customer. Amazon Textract enabled us to build a software that uses RPA technology to automate the process from end-to-end - saving cost, increasing resource productivity, reducing the propensity of errors and failures, and improving the efficiency of enterprise processes to make them more profitable and sustainable."

Foresight Group is a strategically diverse family-owned business, building a legacy for the future. With a core focus on Shipping, Offshore Drilling, Ports & Gas Infrastructure and India focused Private Equity Investments, the Group has over the decades morphed into a global business conglomerate.
"We wanted to automate our invoicing processing in SAP. Currently we process invoices manually which takes anywhere from 15-20 minutes per invoice. The AP team member takes an attachment from an email, manually extracts the data from the invoice, and enters the data into multiple accounting systems. At the beginning we were skeptical with the automation. However, a partner, InfraBeat, evaluated several OCR solutions. Deciding on Amazon Textract, InfraBeat proposed an SAP IRPA with Amazon Textract solution to achieve a high level of accuracy and minimal adjustments to their logic. We always want high accuracy when it comes to data extraction and the results from Amazon Textract were above our expectations, consistent across many different layouts, with 90% accuracy across all invoices.”

“Amazon Textract is very impressive. We decided to use Amazon Textract to detect different document formats to process information and data properly and efficiently. The feature is designed to recognize the different formats it’s pulling text from, whether it’s tables or forms, which is an AI dream come true for us. We needed a solution that would be scalable to various documents as we will receive document types on a regular basis and need to be efficient at reading them. With a lean team, we are able to allow the machine learning to handle the heavy lifting by automating reading thousands of documents and allowing our team to focus on higher-order assignments.”
