How does Klippa’s OCR software work?

With our AI-powered OCR software you can easily extract unstructured data. See the four easy steps our software follows to automate document workflows together with Mendix.

Upload, scan or email documents to our platform.

The first step is sending us the document, either a scanned picture or a PDF file. This can be done from a mobile app, email, FTP, web application or Mendix’s platform via our API. 

The document can be sent cropped or uncropped (with background). If it is sent uncropped, the Klippa API will automatically crop the document.

Image to text using OCR

As soon as a picture or PDF is sent, it is converted to a TXT file. In this step all the text from the document is extracted, but it is not yet structured.

Getting a response 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 this point Klippa offers multiple additional steps depending on your workflow. Data can be processed, classified and/or verified with third party sources. The output can be delivered in a format of choice and delivered on a location of choice (API, email, FTP etc.). 

The image on the left is a simplified example of a JSON response.

Process data with Klippa and Mendix

Once the document goes through the processing cycle, the data is forwarded to your Mendix project. There you have multiple ways to process your newly received structured data tailored to your needs.
