how to read PDFImage and import into salesforce automatically ?

We receive a large volume of Purchase Agreements,Invoices regarding vehicles via email in PDFImage format. Each supplier has a standard PDFImage template with structured data. Currently our users manually enter this data into various SF custom objects. Ideally we'd like to find a way to automatically import the data in the pdfImage's into mapped fields in the custom objects. 

Are there any appson the app exchange that can do this? Otherwise what  type of programming would this require? thanks

Hi Prakash,
The best option that i can think of is using java and use pdfbox library, it easy to use and is pretty good in extracting text from pdf. I can't think of any appexchange tool that does the same.

Link for pdfbox library:

Hope this helps
