Our OCR technology is capable of detecting all the relevant information in the invoice: TTC, the VAT rate(s), type of invoice, currency, date of invoice, merchant, country, means of payment etc… with an overall accuracy rate of 90%. In addition, our OCR recognizes invoices from several countries, and in many languages.

  • There are three endpoints for the OCR+ and OCR+ Beta APIs: FastSnap, FastSnapV2, and FastSnapV3. FastSnap only returns the result of the recognition of the first expense found in the file, while FastSnapV2 and FastSnapV3 accept files containing several expenses and return a list of responses.

  • The InspectExpenseFeatures endpoint of the OCR Image Features API is used to inspect expenses for various features such as image quality, alterations, and to determine if the expense is a receipt or an invoice.

  • The OCR+ With Legal Storage APIs, however, have three different endpoints: the FastSnapWithLegalStorage endpoint allows users to submit files for processing and extracting information from invoices. The get FastSnapArchivedReceipt retrieves the image of an archived receipt identified by a unique fileId, while the get FastSnapSignatureInfo API retrieves the signature information for receipts archived via FastSnap.
Please note that the use of the OCR + APIs requires prior validation by the Expensya team.
