Transform Your Data Extraction App with Veryfi Technology
Author: Alejandro Uribe
This year, the chess community was surprised when the current world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, declined to defend his title after holding it for nearly ten years, citing a lack of motivation. Carlsen’s team has been using AI to improve his chess skills, with the understanding that AI can help people make better decisions.
Having inspiration and the right tools to achieve your goals is essential, and the same mindset applies to software development, just as in chess. Using Veryfi in your mobile app presents a golden opportunity to improve its performance by making it more secure, faster, and more accurate. By leveraging Veryfi’s AI capabilities, you can increase the likelihood of outstanding results in data capture, extraction, and classification.
Chess is all about opportunities and how well you’re prepared to seize them. If you don’t take advantage of them, your opponent will. Using Veryfi can make your product smarter by leveraging the power of Veryfi Lens AI to select the best picture during document capture, leading to outstanding results in data extraction. As the saying goes in accounting, “rubbish in, rubbish out.” With Veryfi Lens, you can prevent rubbish from entering the system.
During a game of chess, it’s customary to ask yourself, “Why am I planning to make this move?” Consider the following questions: Does this move provide enough value? Is it a risky move? Is there a better move available? What will the board look like after this move?
Similarly, in software development and technology products, you will exercise a similar thought pattern in unpacking the value software purchases provide. In addition, you will want to identify a great software purchase by looking at the frequency of product updates, as technology moves fast and updates should be frequent.
You will also want to consider the quality of the support team, as the best software has the best support teams you can rely on to solve or answer your concerns. Another factor to consider is how fast and easy it is to implement the software, as the best software should feel like a walk in the park.
In professional chess, there are three different modalities: Blitz, Rapid, and Classic. For new players, Blitz is often the most entertaining because of the fast pace and time pressure. Each player only has three minutes to perform all their moves, and a player can win by checkmate or if their opponent runs out of time. In the software industry, speed is just as crucial, and you need to move quickly to stay ahead of your competitors.
That’s why using a Day 1-ready solution like Veryfi to automate your document capture and data extraction is essential. By avoiding slow and manual data entry, you can save time and increase efficiency, just like in online Bullet chess, where each player has only one minute to perform their moves. To win in the software industry, speed and cadence are key, and with Veryfi, you can prioritize speed and gain a competitive advantage.
Veryfi’s bank-grade security and compliance, including ongoing processes and compliance monitoring like SOC2 Type2, ensures your data is protected. Just as in professional chess, where players use the latest tools and techniques to surprise their opponents and set themselves up for success, in software development, you can save time and focus on results by using existing knowledge and creating serendipitous moments.
Developing a mobile application that retrieves data from an image or PDF requires knowledge of image processing and machine learning algorithms. Off-the-shelf tools are useful for proof of concept, but they don’t scale in production. It’s better to achieve success quickly and efficiently, like a checkmate in three moves, rather than spending more time and effort on additional unnecessary steps.
