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.
