Frequently asked questions
What data can be captured using Datamolino API?
We capture header / footer invoice data:
- Invoice number
- Supplier name
- Supplier VAT ID
- Issue date
- Due date
- NET, TAX and TOTAL of the Invoice
- Line items with full line item details (where possible)
Additional data fields:
Upon agreement, we can capture many more data points, such as Order ID, Shipping cost, Rounding, Discounts and others. Full list of fields can be found in API documentation.
How are you different to AI based providers?
Our process includes a human in the loop. Our team is responsible for teaching the system to automate your invoices and to validate results. It is in our best interest to automate as much as possible.
A typical AI provider shows you the AI results and asks your team to validate the data in order to improve the results sometimes in the future (typically after a team of data scientists re-train the AI model). With the promise of future automation your employees teach the AI to read the invoices.
Datamolino automates on your behalf. Where automation is not possible our team fills in the blanks to make sure you get data capture results.
Can you split multipage scans into individual invoices?
Datamolino can automatically detect invoices in a batch scan. You can scan multi-page invoices and single page invoices together and Datamolino will intelligently split these into individual transactions. (Most of our competitors are not able to do this and you need to scan multi-page invoices as individual scans)
How does your OCR technology work?
We use machine learning and template based approaches depending on the use case. Datamolino also includes a team of human operators that step in where automation fails. Our top priority are high quality data capture results. That is why we combine multiple approaches to get the job done.
How does the pricing work?
Most of our API integrations have a custom processing pipeline that captures the data based on client requirements. For custom pipelines there is a setup fee that depends on the complexity of your project. The pricing depends on how many data points you need to extract and validate. We expect the volume to be at least 1000 invoices per month for most projects.
Why should I choose Datamolino API over other API based solutions?
With Datamolino you get the unique combination of automation and human validation where required. So while other API providers may give you basic results, it is still up to your team to review and validate the data and feed the machine learning with your annotations. In Datamolino we employ a dedicated team that does all of this for you. We make sure everything is automated and it stays automated. You just upload invoices and bills and the API delivers high quality data.
Does this OCR API also process cash receipts?
Yes, Datamolino API can also process your cash receipts. We are focusing our data capture on invoices and receipts. When processing a receipt, the only requirement is that there is one receipt on one page. Currently the API cannot give instant results on receipts. For most clients this is not a problem and they can utilise our OCR API for their receipt capture.
