Welcome to the future of finance, where paper statements and manual data entry belong to the cavemen era. Remember the old days? Stressing over financial reports and manually extracting numbers with the risk of human error? Well, no more!

Let's dive into how AI and Parseur are revolutionizing the way we handle financial statements.

Types of financial statements

Before we compare life before AI and after AI, let's first understand the different forms of financial statements.Financial statements vary from companies and countries, but here are the common ones:

  • Income Statement: Summarizes revenues, expenses, and profits/losses over a period.
  • Balance Sheet: Shows a company's financial position at a specific point in time, detailing assets, liabilities, and shareholders' equity.
  • Cash Flow Statement (CFS): Tracks the flow of cash in and out of a business over a period, highlighting operating, investing, and financing activities.
  • Statement of Retained Earnings: Shows changes in a company's retained earnings over a period, including net income and dividends paid.
  • 10-K: Annual report filed by publicly-traded companies in the United States with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The pre-AI era of financial data extraction

Before AI and ChatGPT ruled our lives, financial professionals led a boring and stressful life, especially around peak seasons. We all know that errors aren't allowed in the financial industry.

Statistic to sob over: Human error causes 52% of operational incidents in financial organizations.

Spending countless hours in financial data extraction is not only time-consuming but also prone to errors, leading to significant inefficiencies and inaccuracies.

How AI is transforming the financial industry?

As AI stepped onto the scene, it brought a revolution to the banking and financial sector.

AI technologies, through machine learning and natural language processing, can rapidly analyze and extract data from financial documents with high accuracy levels that were previously unattainable.

The integration of AI has drastically reduced processing times, from days to minutes and slashed error rates by significant margins. One report by McKinsey highlighted that AI could automate 50% to 70% of manual data processing tasks, boosting efficiency and accuracy across the board.
