IBAN & bank account number scanning

An image speaks more than a thousand words. Below is an example of the three steps our OCR engine takes to automatically extract IBANs from images and documents.

Uploading documents to the API

The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a document containing an IBAN or bank account number to our API. Usually this is done from a mobile app, email, FTP or web application.

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 it is not yet structured.

Getting JSON output from the API

The Klippa Parser takes the TXT 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 IBAN on the document is now extracted.

From here the field can easily be processed into your database. Whether you are processing IBANs for business transactions, bank account identification or other purposes, Klippa is here to help.

What languages does Klippa support?

Is Klippa IBAN capturing GDPR-compliant?
All the services that Klippa offers are fully GDPR-compliant. By default, we use ISO-certified servers within the European Union for processing. If you are not located within the EU, we can also set up servers in a region of choice. 

Next to that, a data processor agreement is in place. We do not store any of your or your customers’ data after processing.
Can Klippa convert documents to CSV, XLSX, XML or JSON?
Yes we can. Klippa takes pictures of documents, or their PDF equivalents, and converts them to readable text using OCR. From there we use machine learning to turn the text into structured data. Most of the time we use JSON for this, but depending on your preferences we can also convert documents to CSV, XLSX or XML.
