Certificate of origin data extraction

An image speaks more than a thousand words. Below is an example of the three steps our OCR engine takes to automatically extract data from certificates of origin.

Uploading certificates of origin to the API

The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a certificate of origin to our API. This is typically done from a mobile app or a web application.

The document can be sent cropped or uncropped (with background). If the scan is sent uncropped, the Klippa API will automatically crop the document. The Klippa certificate of origin scanning SDK can also be used in mobile apps. 

Image to text using OCR

As soon as a picture or PDF is received, it is converted to a TXT file by our engine. In this step all the text from the document is extracted, but 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. From here the certificate of origin can easily be processed into your database. Whether you are processing certificates of origin for international shipping, customs declarations or compliance checks, Klippa is here to help.
