Automatic text recognition for your mobile app – efficient & accurate

Documents can only be processed automatically if their data is captured in an editable format first. With the Scanbot Text Recognition SDK, you can extract data from all your standard documents. This enables workflow automation and reduces manual data entry, which is time-consuming, error-prone, and costly. By adding OCR capabilities to your app – whether B2B, B2C or internal employee application – you can speed up document processing in any industry.
