Packing slip 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 packing slips.

Uploading packing slips to the OCR API

The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a packing slip 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 packing slip 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 packing slip can easily be processed into your database. Whether you are processing packing slips for international shipping, managing e-commerce businesses or warehouses, Klippa is here to help. The example on the list is a simplified example and does not include all data fields. Every field on the document can be captured, including the line items.

Is Klippa packing slip 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 packing slips to CSV, XLSX, XML or JSON?
Yes we can. Klippa takes pictures of packing slips, 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 packing slips to CSV, XLSX or XML.
