Data entry can often turn tedious and inaccurate if done manually. You can avoid this cumbersome process with an automated optical character recognition software. What OCR does is, it uses machine learning to scan each character on a page individually. It allows the documents to be uploaded as text documents instead of images. Any kind of printed document, be it receipts, invoices, contracts, utility bills and much more can be scanned easily and promptly with this solution.
How is Infrrd’s OCR different from Traditional OCR?
Our OCR solution is different in two ways:
How does Infrrd OCR work?
Step 1: A unique API key is generated for you when you first integrate our optical character recognition software with your mobile or desktop. Even for a trial use, our representatives offer you this key so that you’re all set to scan your documents.
Step 2: Upload any document in the format of PDF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG etc. to the software. You can use Infrrd’s software as a white-labeled mobile app, on your desktop or as a cloud solution to start scanning.
Step 3: Our software starts extracting line items and other key fields such as logo, expense type, merchant name, date of the transaction, amount, currency VAT/GST, business name etc. We can even customize it to extract any other information that you might need. The OCR software provides character-level and word-level confidence scores. These scores are indicators of whether the OCR software believes the extracted information to be accurate.
Step 4: The extracted data is made available to you in formats like XML, CSV, JSON etc. as per your requirement.
