Try with Abby and I am not sure about the accuracy of extracted data.

In my opinion, Abby Cloud OCR is the best engine you could use. But you need a paid license to run it.

Hi Prakash, did you try the Abbyy Flexicapture already? How was it?

In case you have a variety of formats, I think you should also consider using OCR APIs, there is a couple of AI-based services available in the cloud that have the advantage that they do not have to be manually configured and are template-agnostic.

There is a couple of such cloud services available - like Abbyy Flexicapture for Invoices (a bit different from normal Flexicapture), SMACC or infrrd.ai. But I think the best option to try (in terms of accuracy, traction and ease of setup) is Rossum Elis, which integrates with UIPath directly and quite easily - see for an example https://rossum.ai/blog/2018/07/30/automating-data-extraction-from-invoices-using-rossum-api-and-uipath/ .
