Designing the Compono solution using Artificial Intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to quickly extract and validate unstructured data across PDF forms, documents, and images
Submitted by Tetra Tech
The Tetra Tech Federal IT Innovation Lab designed the Compono solution using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to quickly extract and validate unstructured data across PDF forms, documents, and images.
This data validation supports consistent and accurate data across documents, regardless of the format of a given document. If the structure of a document or form changes, Compono automatically continues to extract data without any special configurations. Compono reduces the processing time of scanned documents and images from days to minutes, eliminating the need to rewrite data that’s already captured in a document (e.g., handwritten notes, free-form text).
Reduces the processing time of scanned documents and images from days to minutes
Compono’s benefits include significantly reduced processing speeds through automatic data extraction and validation, built-in scalability that processes millions of documents within minutes, a clear and concise audit trail, and data mining for analytics reporting.
How our customers use the Compono tool
Homeowner Relief Program: Disaster relief program needs to process more than 8,200 claims for its homeowner relief program in response to a catastrophic hurricane and manage delays. Each claim requires intake specialists to compare and validate more than 20 form sets. Each case also must be validated to confirm that driver’s license, passport, property records, tax forms, insurance records, and application form are all consistent. With Compono, the intake process that currently takes two days is shortened to a few minutes.
Employee Onboarding: In the employee onboarding process, managers submit up to 10 unique onboarding forms. Confirming each form is filled out correctly can be time consuming and repetitive. Compono automatically confirms all onboarding forms are filled out correctly, expediting the onboarding process by up to 80 percent.
FOIA Requests: Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) program business analysts input all FOIA requests manually and key in all the individual form values. Each request may have up to 400 form values to be entered into the FOIA record system. Applying Compono expedites FOIA requests by capturing the form values and feeding the data into the FOIA record system, automatically reducing processing hours by up to 80 percent.
