In Parabola, you can pull data from pretty much anywhere — Google Sheets, APIs, FTP folders, databases, and more. But sometimes the data you’re handling are less structured, like third-party invoices or digital documents.
Now you can pull directly from PDFs (and other unstructured data sources) and automatically parse that data. Extract whatever information you want from a PDF, whether it’s line-item data that exists in tables, or it’s document-level data, (like date or invoice number). There are a couple of different ways to pull all this data:
1) Use the “Key-value pairs” option to pull document-level data, or use the “Table data” option to pull data that lives in tables
2) Use a combination of “Raw text” parsing and the Extract with AI step in Parabola to extract and parse all of the raw text from a PDF.
Watch the video below to learn more about how these steps work to extract and parse data.
Our customers are using these steps for a bunch of different use cases, like parsing commercial invoices, packing lists, and bills of lading, or pulling in order forms with details of a contract and sending that information to Salesforce. The opportunities for working with PDF data in Parabola are limitless! 💫
