Build AI on Monday.com with Eden AI

Eden AI was created for no-coders having difficulties with choosing the right AI provider and/or integrating several APIs. Managing multiple accounts can be a tough job, but with Eden AI, you can connect and manage all your APIs on a single account.

Since some AI providers can be complex to use, we wanted to simplify the “no code” part and make AI available to as many people as possible.

Eden AI allows you to solve multiple AI tasks on Monday.com :

Let’s process your invoices!

Just like Receipt and Resume Parsing, Invoice Parsing is a tool powered by OCR to extract and digitalize meaningful data, Computer Vision to identify structure of the document, and NLP techniques to pin down the fields.

Invoice parser technology extracts key information from an invoice (.pdf, .png or .jpg format) such as the invoice ID, total amount due, invoice date, customer name, etc.

Invoice Processing implies the necessity of software and technology to automate the processing and management of invoices. It includes tasks such as capturing invoice data, validating it in comparison to purchase orders, and routing it for approval, payment and archiving.

The goal of AI in invoice processing is to improve efficiency, accuracy, and speed in handling invoices without any human intervention.
