Flexible, Easy and Quick

Digital, Scanned or Photographed

The Xtracta receipt API supports all forms of receipts including virtually all digital formats (PDF, DOC, XLS etc.) and imaged documents (PDF, JPG, TIFF etc.).

Multiple Input Channels

Choose from a variety of channels:

  • Mobile app for on the go
  • API upload
  • Email: We set up and host a dedicated, personalised email address(es) that you can forward receipts to or your suppliers can send digital receipts to eg
  • SFTP for bulk uploading
  • Web Portal with drag and drop functionality

No Rules Necessary and Multi-Field Capture

Using Xtracta’s artificial intelligence technology, the receipt capture API doesn’t need specialist engineers to setup “rules” for each supplier receipt design. Even if the engine has never seen that vendor before, it can automatically pull  the information required including line items.  You tell the engine what you want and it will capture it … vendor details, amounts, dates, payment information including card and cash, taxes, line items and more. 


Captured in Seconds

The Xtracta API will scan the receipt, capture the data and respond in seconds allowing near-real time results to be displayed to the user. Great for mobile.

Receipt Stitching

Receipt Capture made easy. Long receipts are no problem with our receipt photo stitching capability – stitching multiple images together as one receipt. Available as an on-device SDK for developers.

Set and Forget

Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning technology, Xtracta constantly learns with every new receipt scanned and every interaction with users. This self-learning ability enables the data extraction from an unlimited number of receipt 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 receipt.

Paperless, Efficient and in Control
