How it works

Process Vehicle Identification Data in Just a Few Steps

Instantly capture and convert VIN data into any structured format for easier integration. Always get the best results with automatic edge detection for more accurate processing.
Send Your Documents
Start by providing a picture or PDF file of a document or photo containing a VIN, send them to our API or upload them via our web application, FTP, or email.
Extract Data
As soon as a picture or PDF with a VIN has been received, each page is converted to a TXT file and the text from the document is extracted.
Receive Formatted Output
The Klippa Parser then takes the TXT and converts it into structured data. Thanks to machine learning, you can have your data in a structured format like JSON, XML, or CSV.
Forward Your Data
After transforming your data into a structured format, you can then forward it to your software of choice for further processing.

What kind of clients are using Klippa?
Klippa’s engine extracts as much data as possible from documents via OCR and machine learning. We support many different types of clients, because our engine is so versatile. VIN scanning is mostly used by clients in the automotive, insurance and rental sector.
What languages does Klippa support?
All European languages are supported. Our engine performs best on documents in English, Dutch, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Hebrew and French. Other languages can be supported on request, we’d just need to train our machine learning models.
Is Klippa VIN 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 VINs 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.
