OCR for Invoices in 3 Steps

Stay at the forefront of OCR invoice processing by effortlessly integrating our invoice OCR via API or SDK. Discover how Klippa’s OCR software extracts data from invoices in three simple steps. 

Scan invoices with a scanner SDK or upload them through our Invoice OCR API

Scan your invoices with Klippa’s scanning SDK or upload your picture or PDF file to the Invoice OCR API. Uploading the image is done from a web or mobile app.

The invoice can be sent both uncropped (with the background) and cropped (without). If the picture was sent uncropped, our Invoice OCR API automatically crops the document. Klippa’s SDK can be used in mobile apps as well.

Transform image to TXT with OCR invoice processing

As soon as we receive the picture or PDF, our OCR software will convert it to a TXT file. The software extracts all data from the invoice, but it is not yet structured.

Get JSON output from the Invoice OCR API

The parser takes the TXT which was extracted by the OCR in the previous step and converts it into JSON, using machine learning algorithms. Then, the JSON is returned as output from the API.

From this point on, you can easily process the invoice in your database.

How does invoice OCR scanning work?

You can use our OCR SDK scanner for direct scanning or upload photos and PDFs to our Invoice OCR API, starting the process with a simple action and then letting technology take over.

Klippa’s software then analyzes the light and dark patterns that make up the letters and numbers to convert the scanned image into text. After that, data fields are identified and extracted from the invoice.

Can OCR for invoices extract line items?

Klippa supports the extraction of line items on invoices using  machine learning algorithms. For every line, the quantity, description, price per unit, total price and VAT values are extracted. Optionally, SKUs, weight and size can also be extracted.

After the line item extraction, Klippa’s invoice OCR can perform line item classification. Using an additional algorithm, we are able to classify over 20 categories for each line. For example, ‘Food’, ‘Electronics’, ‘Alcohol’ and many other options.

Based on these categories, we can determine the VAT deductibility, distribute loyalty points and suggest general ledger accounts. This is a perfect solution for accounts payable automation.

What use cases are supported by Klippa’s Invoice OCR? 

We try to extract as much from invoices as possible. The goal is to support as many document types as possible.

Many of our clients ask for quality detection, validity verification, warranty insights, invoice analytics, spending insights, cashback, loyalty, VAT reclaim, 2-way matching, 3-way matching and accounting.

RPA accounts payable automation is currently our most popular solution. We can help you automate up to 95% of your invoice processing using invoice OCR and machine learning.

What languages does Klippa support?
