Scale your automotive business with Parseur and Pipedream
Parseur is a no-code and powerful document processing tool that automates the data extraction from documents and emails. Parseur seamlessly integrates with Pipedream, opening exciting new document processing automations with hundreds of applications. In this article, we will take the automotive industry as a use case to explain the integration of Parseur and Pipedream. However, Parseur can be used for different use cases and industries.
Benefits of integrating Parseur with Pipedream
Combining Parseur and Pipedream will let you automate your data entry process and send the right data in real time to your favorite applications.
Parseur can extract data from emails from Outlook, Gmail, and any other email providers. It can also extract text from other types of documents: PDFs, CSVs, spreadsheets, and more. If you need to support several document layouts, you can create templates to teach Parseur what to extract from each layout. Parseur will automatically pick the right template every time a new document comes in.
Creating custom templates is easy: the email parsing tool is point and click and requires zero coding knowledge and no human intervention once setup. The parsed data can then be exported to any application of your choice via Pipedream. Finally, Parseur has ready-made templates for specific industries such as food ordering, real estate, Google alerts, and job search that are processed automatically.
How does the integration with Pipedream and Parseur work?
Integrating Parseur with Pipedream is as simple as 1, 2, 3:
- Parseur receives your email or document
- Parseur extracts the specific information and sends it to Pipedream via webhook
- Pipedream exports the data to a connected application, e.g., Google Sheets
To use this integration you will need:
- A Parseur account
- Your Pipedream account
Imagine you're a car agent who receives hundreds of emails a day from different platforms such as CarGurus or Cars.com. Those emails come in different layouts, which can be time-consuming to review. This routine is monotonous, and can slow your sales. With a mail parsing tool like Parseur, you can extract information automatically and save hours of manual work.
Parseur is able to extract specific data from your car sales emails, like:
- Buyer details (name, email, phone number)
- Car details (model, price, type)
- Message from buyer
Step 1: Create your free Parseur mailbox
Parseur is free to start with all the features enabled.
Once you sign up, you will be prompted to create your Parseur mailbox.
Choose Emails and documents (default):
Step 2: Forward the car sales emails to your Parseur mailbox
To develop an automated workflow right from the start, we recommend you create an auto-forwarding rule from your personal inbox to the Parseur mailbox. Parseur will receive and process the email within seconds!
Step 3: Create your template to extract data from the email
Teach Parseur which specific information you would like to extract from your email. Highlight the fields and create your custom template.
The parsed results will appear like so:
Step 4: Integrate Parseur with Pipedream
Parseur integrates with Pipedream via webhooks. Parseur delivers events to Pipedream in real-time, triggering your Pipedream workflow, allowing you to send event data to any connected app. In your Parseur mailbox:
- Visit Export
- Click on Webhooks
- Select New webhook
You will see that a webhook URL is required to continue the integration process. In Pipedream:
- Create a new workflow
- Select the HTTP API trigger on the right
This will generate a custom URL, specific to your workflow, which you can paste into the Target URL field of your Parseur webhook:
Once the webhook is created, you will have to re-process your email in Parseur so that Pipedream can receive the extracted data.
Step 5: Connect Pipedream with Google Sheets
In this example, we'll send Parseur data to Google Sheets. But you can easily send data to any other application supported by Pipedream. Here, the process is quite straightforward:
- Click the + button below the HTTP API trigger to add a step to your workflow
- Search for "Google Sheets"
- Click on the Add Single Row action, and select the Drive and Spreadsheet you want to export the parsed data to
Once this is done, click on Deploy and check your spreadsheet to see if the data has been sent automatically.
And, that's it! From now on, every email or document that you send to this Parseur mailbox will be processed automatically and exported to Google Sheets via Pipedream without your manual intervention.
