Converting files from the Adobe PDF format to CSV or to the Microsoft Excel format is a need that a great number of organizations and individuals have, but an easy one-click automated solution still remains elusive. The reason is simple – PDFs do not contain data elements in a way that their position on canvas can be easily determined (explained well here and here. Any attempt to create a software, that can read and parse any kind of PDF files and automatically convert the relevant data to CSV, is going to be futile.
So what we have done is created a tool that understands this limitation and lets you define in an intuitive way what information needs to be extracted and how it needs to be placed in the output file. IntelliGet first processes the PDF file and converts it into plain text format. Then with a small set of keywords, you can define the whole input and output structure. You can use IntelliGet to process your PDF Order Sheets, Quotations, Invoices, Bank Statements, Vendor Reports etc. Just define the structure once and extract from as many files as you want.
