Teach robots to intelligently process documents using AI

Document Understanding logo

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? UiPath 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

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.

Train robots to understand your custom documents

Get off to a quick start with AI and improve accuracy over time

Make use of pre-trained machine learning models to enhance your bots with AI. Empower citizen developers and business users with no-code Forms AI.

Coupled with traditional RPA, AI document processing calls for highly intelligent robots that keep learning over time to become more accurate.

Easily build and deploy intelligent document-processing robots

Drag and drop Document Understanding activities into the user-friendly UiPath Studio environment. Occasionally validate data in UiPath Action Center to handle exceptions and help robots understand your documents better.

Automate more processes— from start to finish

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.
