Tackling GBS Document Processing Challenges: Legacy Solutions vs. Parashift Platform

In the dynamic landscape of Global Business Services (GBS), encompassing diverse functions like finance, IT, HR, and operations, operational efficiency and strategic growth stand as pivotal goals. GBS professionals, striving to optimize these multifaceted services across international markets, often encounter significant hurdles. One major challenge lies in the complexities of document processing, a critical yet often cumbersome task. This article delves into the top five challenges faced in document processing within GBS, contrasting traditional methodologies with the innovative, AI-driven solutions offered by Parashift’s Intelligent Document Processing Platform, designed to streamline and transform this essential function.

Challenge 1: Inefficient data extraction

Legacy Solutions vs. Parashift:

Traditional systems often rely on basic OCR which lacks context-awareness, leading to high error rates and inefficiency. Parashift’s platform employs advanced OCR coupled with AI-driven Document Swarm Learning®, enabling context-sensitive data extraction. This technology not only understands document layouts and semantics but also nuances in different types of documents, ensuring a remarkable accuracy level of over 98% on field level.

Challenge 2: Poor integration capabilities

Legacy Solutions vs. Parashift:

Traditional systems typically support limited, often outdated integration protocols, making it challenging to connect with modern business applications. Parashift offers a robust API framework and pre-built connectors compatible with a wide range of contemporary business software. This flexibility allows for seamless integration, ensuring efficient data flow and system interoperability.

Challenge 3: Limited scalability

Legacy Solutions vs. Parashift:

Legacy systems struggle under increased workloads due to their static architecture, leading to performance bottlenecks. Parashift’s platform is built on a cloud-based, modular infrastructure that scales dynamically with the workload. Leveraging cloud computing, it efficiently manages large volumes of documents and data, ensuring consistent performance even under heavy loads.

Challenge 4: Compliance and security risks

Legacy Solutions vs. Parashift:

Older systems often lack robust security measures and may not comply with current data protection regulations. Parashift’s platform is designed with security at its core, featuring end-to-end encryption, regular security audits, and compliance with international standards like GDPR. Its cloud infrastructure also ensures that data is stored and processed securely, adhering to the highest industry security protocols.

Challenge 5: Slow adaptation to change

Legacy Solutions vs. Parashift:

Conventional systems are typically rigid, slow to adapt to new document types or business processes. Parashift, in contrast, employs Document Swarm Learning®, a unique feature of its machine learning framework. This technology enables the system to rapidly adapt to new document formats and processing requirements. Document Swarm Learning® works by leveraging collective intelligence from various document processing tasks across different clients, allowing the system to learn and evolve continuously. This not only speeds up the adaptation process but also enhances accuracy and efficiency, ensuring that Parashift’s platform remains agile and relevant in the face of ever-changing business landscapes.


Navigating document processing in GBS is fraught with challenges that traditional systems are inadequately equipped to address. Parashift’s Intelligent Document Processing Platform represents a paradigm shift, offering a modern, intelligent solution to these challenges and empowering GBS to excel in an increasingly digital and data-driven world.
