AFI DocumentHub: The Best Data Quality for Sure

The powerful package of cloud-based services ensures for extraction and verification of your documents at the highest stage. The following components are available in the AFI DocumentHub.


Data Hub DocConnect

DocConnect works in the background without user action and ensures a smooth process. The service connects your SAP system with the AFI data center: DocConnect collects documents which come in electronically and distributes them to the corresponding recognition service DocXtract or, if required, to the verification service DocVerify. Finally, the service makes sure that the acquired data ends up in the SAP system and that the users are informed.


Recognition Professional DocXtract

DocXtract uses recognition logic to extract data from invoices, order confirmations or customer orders in TIFF, PDF or EML (e-mail) format. This service does not require any user interaction and runs in the background as well. DocXtract ensures that you can continue to work smoothly with the information in the incoming documents in your SAP system. A machine learning process (artificial intelligence) is integrated to continuously improve data recognition. You decide which document component of DocXtract is to be deployed in your system.


Reliable Testing with DocVERIFY

If a document does not meet a project-specific recognition rate, DocVerify takes over. For optical verification, the recognized data can be compared with the image of the original in a web user interface. This DocumentHub service specializes in validation and makes it all around convenient.

Input channels

Productive Services

The cloud services process incoming orders (service order), order confirmations (service confirmation) and incoming invoices (service invoice). The documents are transferred to the applications by the customer in the form of e-mails with attached documents or by scanned documents via scan-to-mail to a particular mailbox. The data recognized and verified by the cloud-based services is forwarded by the DocConnect Service to the SAP system for further processing.  


Comfortable and Safe

Update projects are a thing of the past with DocumentHub: we ensure that the services are up-to-date at a central location. AFI proactively monitors the system and maintenance work is carried out in agreed down times. You can be sure to always work with the best and most secure version and use the latest functions.
