Analysis of three key regions reveals priorities to improve workforce agility, customer experience, and overall operational efficiency. According to ABBYY data, the key driver is the need to improve how they process the data and related documents. Most notable by region include:

North America

  • Tax forms (IRS 1040)
  • Financial documents (bank statements, invoices)


  • Documents for international travel and commerce (customs declarations, identity documents, waybills)


  • Forms related to international shipping (air and sea waybills)
  • Identity documents
  • Financial documents (bank statements, invoices)

Despite their varying priorities, all three regions are focused on streamlining accounts payable operations by improving and decreasing cost of invoice processing, as well as elevating the customer experience for both consumer and business customers though automated processing of identity-related documents, and documents used within transportation and logistics.

Enterprises in all regions also had similar priorities to augment their intelligent automation platforms with connectors for more advanced IDP capabilities that have better accuracy in reading, extracting, and classifying unstructured and semi-structured data. Connecting to high-end IDP solutions with their existing platforms enables organizations to cost effectively scale their technology investments. ABBYY data notes the most requested connectors are for the following platforms:

  • Microsoft Power Automate
  • UiPath
  • Blue Prism
  • Automation Anywhere

Based on initial data from January through March 2023, ABBYY anticipates continued growth of IDP adoption for use cases accelerating workforce agility, improving the customer experience, and streamlining supply chain and logistics business processes.

The data included in this report are from October through December 2022 and were generated from the ABBYY Marketplace, a vibrant hub for citizen developers and users to discover and contribute assets that augment ABBYY Vantage. Document Skills and Connectors are built to extract business-critical information from documents and integrate actionable data from ABBYY IDP solutions into third-party intelligent automation platforms such as robotic process automation (RPA), business process management (BPM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and process mining and analytics platforms.
