Quick Start Guide

This getting started guide will walk you through Sypht’s app and teach you how to:

  • Create an account
  • Upload documents
  • Extract data
  • Fix data
  • Export data

BUT, honestly, the best way to get started with Sypht is to skip this document :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:, create an account (LINK) and follow the Platform Tour available from the Help menu. The Platform Tour will nicely walk you through all the key aspects of Sypht and save you from having read all the stuff below. Highly recommend it.

Create an account

To create an account, pop over to the Sypht registration page.

Fill out your First Name, Last Name, Business Email, Company Name, Country, and any other required details. Our sign-up forms are pretty crisp, so sign-up takes a second.

Go to your email and open the Welcome to Sypht! email and verify your email account.

Once verified, you’re ready to start Syphting!

NOTE: Your trial account is free for three months (if you want an extension just ask, we’re more than happy to :smiling_face_with_3_hearts:)

Welcome to the Sypht App

Once you log in, you’ll be forwarded to our Documents page. This is the heart of the Sypht app. It’s where all the processing and hard work happens.

Again, we suggest you skip reading all this stuff about Sypht and use our Platform Tour, shown in the screen capture below. It’s more fun to do and learn rather than read, isn’t it? :wink:

Likely, you’ll want to upload a set of documents to try out our AI processing power.
