Affinda's platform has a built-in hierarchy that allows clear organisation of documents, user permissions and billing/ credits.
The 'Organisation' sits at the top level of the hierarchy. Billing and parsing credit usage is tracked at the Organisation level. Users are added to the organisation, however, Administrators can apply different permissions to what parts of the Organisation's Workspaces they can view.
A 'Workspace' is where one or more documents (i.e. collections) are processed. Workspaces help to organise documents by team, job function or jurisdiction (or some other dimension that suits your requirements). Documents can be sent to Workspace and classified into Collections or can be sent directly to Collections. Permissions are managed at Workspace level, so that different Users within one Organisation can view different Workspaces.
Collections are queues or groups of documents that have similar characteristics. Within a Collection, a single AI model will be applied to all the documents. This may be one of our off-the-shelf 'generic' models, or a model trained and tailored to other documents already processed within this Collection.
Most commonly, Workspaces will be set up with one or more Collections, each Collection representing a different document type. However, a Workspace may have multiple Collections of the same document type that need different fields or auto-validation settings.
