Because of the extremely varied, free format nature of attachments, attachments parsing is indeed much more of an art than it is a science. Tamago-DB is able to achieve an average of 90% accuracy on most English resumes, roughly similar accuracy on most resumes created in the romance languages (French, Italian, etc.), and an accuracy of 75 ~ 80% on resumes created in Asian languages like Chinese and Japanese. Accuracy improves on quarterly basis. See our list of supported languages for overall coverage.
There are a number of common problems that occur when importing and parsing an attachment. Here are some points to double-check after each import:
Check the candidate name matches that in the attachment.
Check the address. If you need to regenerate the address, remember that there is an "Import address" button for each set of address fields.
Check companies added to the Experience section. You may need to convert the names of these companies into new Tamago-DB company entities, or search through existing companies for an already saved company entity.
Leveraging the power of parsing with a quick check for each document will ensure that you are able to add a large volume of data rapidly.
