Extract data automatically from PDFs stored in OneDrive

Do you save all your PDF files to OneDrive folders? Do you need to extract data from those PDF files automatically and send them to another tool?

With Parseur, you can create an automated workflow from the moment you upload a new file to OneDrive.

Why integrate OneDrive with Parseur?

Let’s say that you save all of your PDF files in a OneDrive folder. In order to extract data from those PDFs, you have to manually download them, and drag and drop them into a PDF parsing tool for the data extraction process.

This manual process is time consuming and you’d rather automate it and focus your time on other productive tasks.
