  • An automotive e-retailer looking to modernize the car-buying and selling process leverages Amazon Textract to accelerate transactions by automatically capturing and validating data from documents and forms, such as loan applications or vehicle titles, so decisions can be made more quickly. The Brightspot integration enables site editors to quickly access and publish this valuable data.
