2. IDP builds on various advanced technologies and understands the context of the data from the documents.

3. IDP’s advanced technologies are based on artificial intelligence (AI) and combine machine learning, deep learning, optical character recognition (OCR) and natural language processing (NLP).

4. IDP has the power to automatically capture, classify, and extract relevant data in a structured manner from complex and unstructured documents.

5. IDP not only eliminates manual and tedious work, but also opens up new data sources and enables end-to-end automation in an enterprise.
