The Challenge – Standardised Data
The RABE Register would like to provide standardised data of all German commercial-register notices to their customers. And as quickly as possible. However, these notices consist largely of free texts in which the relevant information is completely hidden.
Our Software Solution
We have developed special software to parse these commercial register notices. Parsing means to analyse language for further electronic processing. This way, our software is able to extract data such as addresses and names from these free texts. And they can even deal with the frequent typos in the entries. These errors are corrected automatically by the software.
It was not easy, but today the RABE Register makes this standardised data available to its customers one day after publication.
