No Rules or Templates Necessary

Using Xtracta’s artificial intelligence technology, the invoice data capture API doesn’t need specialist engineers to setup “rules” or “templates” for each supplier invoice design. Even if the engine has never seen that supplier before, it can automatically pull all of the information required including line items. You tell the engine what you want and it will capture it.

Set and Forget

Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning technology, Xtracta constantly learns with every new document scanned and every interaction with users. This self-learning ability enables the hands-free data extraction from an unlimited number of document designs in a variety of languages.

In exceptional cases where data may be missing, end-users can also “teach” the engine by simply clicking on data in the Engine Learning Screen to show the Xtracta engine what data they want from the invoice.

Personalised, Paperless and In Control

Personalise to Your Business

Tailor the engine to your specific requirements such as coding to the GL or assigning identification codes to invoices.  Use our advanced data tools such as auto-formatting eg dates and currencies, data matching eg check invoice against PO code and “strip and replace” eg removing currency symbol. Verify data using our pre-existing checks or build your own:

  • mathematical checking eg gross total – tax= nett total in invoices
  • debit or credit match with running balance in statements
  • compare values such as checking if the supplier is in your supplier list.

Become Paperless and Streamlined

Data is captured in seconds and a copy of the original invoice is also captured and transferred to your accounting software. No more chasing invoices around the office and save time previously spent filing, archiving and retrieving invoices. Become paperless overnight.

Free up Time

Remove error-prone, time consuming manual data entry. Become more efficient and devote time to more high value tasks.

Increase Visibility and Control

At any time of the month, know exactly where an invoice is in the AP process and who it is sitting with. Use extracted data to assist with fraud detection. Manage exceptions in real time, meet payment deadlines and make decisions quicker with real time reporting and tracking.

Easy to Use API and Brand as Your Own

The Xtracta API makes it very simple for software companies to integrate into your application. With full documentation and personalised integration support and the using of industry standard REST architecture with XML data structures – the API can be deployed into desktop, SaaS or mobile apps quickly and efficiently and you can brand the functionality as your own.

What is invoice scanning?

When used for accounts payable (AP), invoice scanning is the first step of the AP process. This software digitises supplier invoices. However, the term ‘invoice scanning’ or ‘invoice imaging’ also broadly refers to the conversion of paper invoices into digitised documents in general.
In comparison, invoice data capture (also known as invoice scanning software or invoice OCR software), refers to a computer program that can extract and convert invoice information into editable formats such as Excel.
Automated data entry, through invoice scanning and data capture, is essential for businesses seeking a precise invoice scanning solution.

What is OCR invoice processing in accounts payable?

OCR invoice processing is a commonly encountered term online, especially for those looking to automate their accounts payable workflow. OCR invoice processing is found in most AP software systems, alongside tax form processing, electronic funds transfers, and more.
Invoice OCR is the process of extracting and converting data from digital documents (such as invoices and other accounting documents) into searchable and editable text.
OCR software solutions incorporate machine learning—such as Xtracta’s invoice data extraction API—to give companies a quantifiable edge. They can fully optimise their accounts payable workflow, increase accuracy and transparency, and free up valuable time & resources.
