Uploading Proofs of Delivery to the OCR API
The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a Proof of Delivery 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 POD 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 Proof of Delivery can easily be processed into your database.
Whether you are processing Proofs of Delivery for international shipping, managing delivery services or postal services, Klippa is here to help.
