Document Classification


One of the most powerful and useful features of ABBYY Vantage is the ability to classify documents. By training ABBYY using examples of the documents, you can train the system to identify the type of document. This article outlines a use case where invoices and bill of lading documents enter the system at the same time. Vantage will classify these documents based on training, sending them to the proper document skill for extraction.
