The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a cross-platform file format for documents, which has become widely accepted for the exchange of electronic documents such as invoices or purchase orders in business.
The disadvantage, however, is that the PDF format is not suitable for automatic processing. In short, the data is in an unstructured form that differs from PDF to PDF, making it difficult to automatically recognize data.
At this point, PDF-Mapper comes into play. With this application, orders and invoices in PDF format can be automatically processed into structured XML or EDI data, which can be processed by your ERP system (Enterprise Resource System or similar).
