Step 3: Forward a car sales email from your personal inbox to your automotive mailbox

As an example, we will take the case where car dealers receive customer leads via Cars.com.

Parseur receives emails or documents within seconds.

Step 4: Create an AI-assisted template for car data extraction

Once Parseur receives your email, you will be asked to create your first template. For this type of mailbox, you'll notice that there are ready-made fields which you can use.

From there, you can teach Parseur which specific information you require.

Highlight the data and create fields for each of them, as per the below screenshot:

It takes a couple of minutes to create a template and this is just a simple one-time process without create any parsing rules for your template. You have the freedom to choose which data you need and which ones can be discarded.

Step 5: Forward your leads automatically to your mailbox

Once your first template is ready, every email that you send in a similar format will be processed automatically! There will be zero manual work for you as this process will be completely automated.

For best results, we recommend setting up an auto-forward for your emails.

  1. Download the extracted information as Excel, CSV, or JSON.
