R&D Process for AON

The client wanted a solution that would enable them to extract financial data from PDF files in a semi-automatic way. At the time, they were sending all of their PDFs to an Indian company that extracted the relevant data into a large Excel file. The process of research, design, and development for a solution that handled their problem was one that I am most proud of.
