Working With Data and Artificial Intelligence

In an era driven by data, GET recognizes the critical role of digitization and the tremendous potential that artificial intelligence (AI) brings to the table. We have embraced these technologies as catalysts for innovation, enabling us to re-imagine our business processes and establish ourselves as thought leaders in the industry.

Embracing the Power of Google Document AI

Google Document AI is a cloud-based service that uses artificial intelligence to extract structured data from documents. This data can then be used to automate workflows, improve decision-making, and comply with regulations. 

An example of data we extract from Document AI: PO number, invoice date, and line items.

Here’s an example of how we transformed one of our processes of storing purchase order documents:

  1. Training is done with the artificial intelligence model in Document AI so it can properly extract required information.
  2. On site, we upload images of documents into our Autodesk Construction Cloud. 
  3. These images are extracted from the cloud and stored in our cloud storage bucket.
  4. Document AI is used to extract information from the images based on its “knowledge” from the earlier training. 

Once the relevant information from purchase order images is extracted using Document AI, the data is integrated into Google BigQuery subject to our robust data management policy.

BigQuery allows us to store and analyze massive amounts of data with ease, making it an ideal solution for handling large volumes of any relevant information.

I save about 75% of my time compared to if I have to do this manually - artificial intelligence has made some of my work that much easier.

Benefits Beyond Automation

  • Improved Efficiency: With automation, we only need personnel to verify the works undertaken by a set process – thus optimizing up time and resources.
  • Enhanced Accuracy: Document AI’s advanced machine learning models deliver highly accurate results, minimizing the chances of data discrepancies and improving overall data quality. 
  • Real-time Insights: By seamlessly integrating purchase order data into BigQuery, decision-makers gain access to real-time insights, enabling them to make informed business decisions promptly. 
  • Scalability and Flexibility: The cloud-based nature of Document AI and BigQuery ensures that the system can handle increased data volumes as our organization grows. This scalability enables us to adapt to changing business needs effectively. 

Pioneering Digital Transformation

Our partnership with Google Cloud Platform has empowered us to lead the charge in digitization and AI-driven business transformation. The implementation of Document AI, coupled with the scalability and security of BigQuery, has enabled us to revolutionize our various business processes. By harnessing the power of these cutting-edge technologies, we are paving the way for a future where digitization and new technological horizons is utilized to its full potential.
