Text Recognition for automated document processing

optical character recognition technology

With our OCR SDK, you can integrate the latest OCR technology into your application. Our SDK utilizes machine learning optimization to enable automated data classification and processing. During the process, an algorithm extracts document data and transforms them into searchable and editable files. This conversion process of pixel images is called binarization. Our SDK features such as an automatic perspective correction or filter and cropping options will automatically guide your users towards the best possible scanning results. Therefore, your users will experience seamless document scanning while manual efforts and error rates on your side are minimized. Our SDK is suitable for various platforms and operating systems. Here you can find a full overview of all supported platforms and available features.

You are curious about how optimizing your workflow through automated data extraction works? Then find out about how to use our OCR SDK in 5 simple steps:

OCR in app integration
  1. Place your phone over the document you would like to scan.
  2. Our automatic perspective correction guides you towards the optimal angle. It comes with a cropping feature to adjust your scanned document and is a crucial step in providing optimal scanning results. Within the process, our edge detection will indicate you the area which will be cropped.
  3. During a binarization process, an algorithm recognizes pixels and extracts them.
  4. The extracted data are transformed into digital files. These files are editable and searchable. You can also decide to receive tiff files, which are beneficial due to their minimal file size.
  5. OCR results can be optimized through the application of our image filtering options. You can choose to export document data in grey-scale, full colour or binarized. Applying our image filtering function will give your documents the perfect final touch.
