UiPath Document Understanding

Teach robots to intelligently process documents using AI


Wouldn’t it be great if software robots could understand documents? To extract, interpret, and process data for you, even from PDFs, images, handwriting, and scans?
Document Understanding helps your robots do just that. Delegate more of your digital paperwork, with a boost from AI.

Process a wide range of documents

Your documents come in many layouts and formats. But whether they’re fixed forms or unstructured ones; whether they contain handwriting, checkboxes or signatures; whether they’re rotated, skewed, or low-resolution—UiPath Robots can handle them.


Get off to a quick start with AI

Make use of pre-trained machine learning models to enhance your bots with AI. Coupled with traditional RPA, AI document processing helps automate highly manual cognitive tasks.

Train robots to understand your custom documents

Intelligent document processing calls for highly intelligent robots, so they keep learning and get more accurate over time. To train a new custom model, use UiPath AI Fabric.


Automate more processes— from start to finish

Before Document Understanding, automated workflows required humans to step in and process documents manually. Now you can teach robots to handle an entire process. Humans only need to check in to validate data or handle exceptions.

Guide to Document Understanding

  • Learn how to process different types of documents
  • Increase operational efficiency and mitigate risks with intelligent document processing

People hate paper-pushing.
Our robots love it.
And really, they’re quite good at it.


Versatile and flexible

  • Can find needed data, even if its position moves in the document.

Highly accurate

  • Can define which technology to use to ensure the highest accuracy.

Capable and independent

  • Can perform high-volume processes end-to-end, 24/7, with minimal monitoring.
