Document Intelligence Platform

Combining EY business knowledge with leading-edge machine learning technologies from Microsoft computer vision, we help companies extract critical insights from a wide range of business documents.

Making document review and processing faster, more consistent and more accurate

Are you suffering from document overload? 

Organizations often need to review, process and interpret an ever-growing number of structured and unstructured documents. To avoid being overwhelmed, they must quickly, consistently, accurately extract and interpret the information trapped in these documents. This can be a very labor intensive, time-consuming and costly process. If they are unable to keep pace, customer experiences degrade, business opportunities are missed, and exposure to legal and regulatory risks increases exponentially. This is a complex problem that won’t be solved by simply adding more resources.

What if you could spend 90% less time reading documents? 

The EY Document Intelligence platform helps organizations unlock insights from a wide range of key business documents, while substantially reducing review and processing time. The platform has helped clients: 

  • Reduce document review and processing time by 90% 
  • Decrease costs by 80%

Shorten time-to-value with pre-trained document lenses 

The EY Document Intelligence (DI) platform makes use of lenses that are self-contained, pre-trained machines that work directly with specific document types. These lenses are trained using EY vast knowledge base of business documents and applied within the DI platform to accelerate the ingestion and interpretation of specific document types.
