Upload a document or image to the API
The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a document containing a due date to our API. Usually this is done from a mobile app, email, FTP or web application.
The document can be sent both cropped (without background) and uncropped (with background). If the image is sent uncropped, our API automatically crops it to the right size.
Image to text using OCR
As soon as a picture or PDF has been received, it is converted to a TXT file. In this step, all the text from the document is extracted, but the data is not yet structured.
Next to due dates, other data fields can be extracted as well. For example, we can extract:
– Amounts (total amount, VAT amount, etc.)
– Invoice numbers
– Contact details
Getting JSON output from the API
The Klippa Parser takes the data gained from the OCR in step 2 and converts it into structured JSON using machine learning.
The JSON is then returned as output from the API. The due date on the document is now extracted. From here, the field can easily be processed into your database.
Whether you are processing due dates for accounting, financial, payments or other purposes, Klippa is here to help.
The image on the left is a simplified example of the JSON response. More fields can be extracted if required.
