May 19, 2020 — Alfa Insurance has introduced the Intelligent Document Recognition system from the Russian developer Smart Engines to speed up the conversion of paper documents into digital forms
Alfa Insurance (AlfaStrakhovanie Group) is the largest Russian insurance company, offering more than 100 insurance services to its 23 million individual and 435,000 corporate clients (Aeroflot, Coca-Cola, RusHydro, Yokohama, Sheremetyevo International Airport, Svyaznoy, Euroset, Lukoil, and more). Being one of the country’s top market players, Alfa Insurance processes over 20 thousand documents, including contracts, financial documents, and incoming correspondence on an everyday basis. This documentation is being populated into the company’s electronic document management system (EDMS), which now incorporates barcode scanning feature, is able to capture scanning time, name of the employee who is performing the document recognition, as well as the place where the original documents are being stored, and other attributes of the process. The digital system imports digital documents in PDF, XLSX, DOC formats, for further storage in EDMS.
“Alfa Insurance employees are working with large amounts of documents, and despite the apparent easiness of the process, there are quite a few technical requirements to it: first, and foremost, in order for it to be quick and error-free, a high-quality technical solution is needed. In case an organization uses third-party software, it will have to invest in the license and technical support; this is the reason why we decided to come up with our own IT system with the help of a reliable software developer. The newly introduced IDR solution from Smart Engines works fast, is error-free, and cost-effective, and has thus fully met our expectations”. Elena Eremina, Head of the Information systems department, Alfa Insurance
