Overall Satisfaction with Resume Parser by Affinda

My team developed an application that helps job seekers improve their resumes and thus improve their chances of getting job interviews when they apply for jobs. My application needs a 3rd party resume parser to convert the document to structured data before my application can run the algorithms my team created. We chose Affinda as the resume parser after comparing it to 8 other resumes parsing APIs.
  • High accuracy compared to the other vendors.
  • Able to handle complex document formats.
  • Affinda team is very responsive to tune and customize the product to its customers' needs.
  • Resume Parser by Affinda is a few seconds slower than the other parsers I used (Part of this may just be due to propagation delay, considering my data center is halfway around the world). Regardless, for my needs, Affinda's accuracy outweighed the extra latency.
  • XML and JSON output options.
  • Simple XML hierarchy, easy for my API client to consume.
  • Easy to implement sample API client.
  • Reduced cost
  • More accurate parsing outcomes
Affinda's parsing accuracy is as good as or better than the competitors I compared it against. But my primary motivation in switching vendors was the responsiveness of the Affinda team in terms of the excellent customer support and the willingness to customize the product to meet my needs.
