Simplify Document Search with Nanonets

Do more than just creating searchable PDFs

Nanonets platform automatically parses through all the files using its advanced OCR and returns the files that contain the values you are looking for.
For example, say we have an invoice extraction model and search for text in an invoice, say a key, Nanonets returns all relevant documents for you.

To make searches more accurate, Nanonets lets you assign data types for values inside your information. For example, you have to filter PDFs
based on invoice dates and amounts. Our platform uses Artificial Intelligence to identify data types and makes searches infinitely more structured.
