Tasks Automated

What Processes can you automate in Adobe PDF using RPA?

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can be used to automate a wide range of processes in Adobe PDF documents. For example, RPA can be used to extract data from PDF documents, including both structured data (such a stables) and unstructured data (such as freeform text). This data can then be used for various purposes, such as importing into a database or spreadsheet, performing analysis, or generating reports. RPA can also be used to manipulate data within PDF documents, including tasks such as formatting, sorting, and filtering. It can be used to split or merge PDF documents, or to extract specific pages or sections.

In addition, RPA can be used to validate the data within PDF documents, ensuring that it is accurate and consistent. This can be useful for quality control purposes, or to ensure that data meets certain criteria before it is used for further processing or analysis. Finally, RPA can be used to automate the process of filling out PDF forms, including both electronic forms and paper forms that have been scanned into PDF format.

What other process automations can we do?

One example of a data extraction task that can be automated in an Adobe PDF using Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is extracting structured data from tables. Many PDF documents contain tables of data that need to be extracted and used for further processing or analysis. RPA can be used to automate the process of extracting this data, including identifying the table in the PDF document, determining the structure of the table, and extracting the data into a usable format such as a spreadsheet or database. This can save time and reduce the risk of errors when working with large amounts of data in PDF documents.
