AlphaApps builds an AI SaaS platform for faster
document processing



Pedant is an intelligent document processing (IDP) platform that streamlines financial document management, including invoices, delivery notes, and bank cheques. It leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to automate data extraction, classification, and verification from such documents.

By transforming manual document handling into a streamlined digital workflow, Pedant reduces operational costs, speeds up processing times, and minimises errors. It is an indispensable tool for any business looking to optimise its transactional workflow.

Problem Statement

Processing financial documents like invoices, cheques, and delivery notes is a critical function in business operations, but it is often plagued by inefficiencies, errors, and high costs. Traditional methods involve manual data entry, cross-verification, and extensive paper trails, leading to:

  • Delayed payments and cash flow issues
  • Increased risk of human error
  • High operational costs
  • Inefficient use of human resources
  • Excess time spent on manual processing

To address these challenges, we aimed to develop Pedant - a comprehensive, automated document processing solution.

Our Objective

Build a system to automate document digitisation and data extraction

Use machine learning (ML) algorithms to improve data accuracy and compliance with invoice fraud detection and duplicate checking

Enhance account processing efficiency, reduce financial discrepancies, and accelerate payment cycles

Automating data extraction

How Pedant works


Upload financial

Easy bulk upload of pdf documents and e-invoices via email forwarding and API


Processing and

Pre-trained and continuously evolving Machine-Learning model extracts document details such as invoice-number, date, amount, and line items



Pedant uses AI to automate validation against predefined rules, formats, and databases. It identifies and flags discrepancies, such as missing tax numbers or IBANs



Effortless data export in preferred format. Pedant’s developer interface provides API endpoints for seamless integration with ERP and accounting platforms
