Invoice parsing is a process that uses optical character recognition (OCR), computer vision, and natural language processing (NLP) techniques to extract and digitalize relevant data from invoices.
It involves identifying the structure of the document and extracting key information such as the invoice ID, total amount due, invoice date, and customer name. Invoice parsers can help improve data accuracy by automating the data extraction process and reducing the potential for errors that can occur during manual data entry.
This extracted data can then be used for a variety of purposes, such as generating reports or exporting data to other applications. Invoice parsing is often used in conjunction with other business management tools to streamline processes and improve efficiency.
The first step is to set Axios, a promise-based HTTP client for the browser and Node.js, that will allow you to call Eden AI API.
Next, you'll need to initialize the File System module in order to access local files on your computer.
Finally, you'll need to create your multipart/formdata parameters form:
You are now ready to process documents into Eden AI Invoice Parser API. You can process Invoice Parsing in many languages (here is the list of languages supported for Invoice Parsing.)
To perform Invoice Parsing, make sure to create an account on Eden AI for free. Then, you will be able to get your API key directly from the homepage with free credits offered by Eden AI.
As shown above, we have called two different Invoice Parsing engines. Once the parameters values are passed, you can configure your request:
Then, you just need to launch the request and print the result:
Here is an example of a Invoice Parsing response:
Using Invoice Parser with Eden AI API is quick and easy.
We offer a unified API for all providers: simple and standard to use, with a quick switch between providers and an access to the specificic features of each provider
The JSON output format is the same for all suppliers thanks to Eden AI's standardisation work. The response elements are also standardised thanks to Eden AI's powerful matching algorithms.
With Eden AI you have the possibility to integrate a third party platform: we can quickly develop connectors. To go further and customize your Invoice Parser request with specific parameters, check out our documentation.
