For our client, decimo GmbH/rechnung.de, we’ve built an AI system that automates their invoice processing tasks, to make their back-office more efficient. Our system is able to detect over 35 categories in invoices, with super-human performance. Whether it’s the name, street and zip code of the invoice issuer or of the recipient, the tax amount, the invoice-item description or the invoice-item amount, our System is able to detect all of the important categories that are required for accounting.
Since our system comes in the form of a developer friendly rest-api, the results can be fed right away into every database- and accounting-system like Datev, SAP etc. The system takes an invoice as input (whether as an image or PDF) and returns the detected categories in JSON format. Optionally, it can also return a visualization of the categories on the input-invoice.
We’ve only worked with state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence, which enables us to process any invoice right away, without any specific rule or template setup. Since manual document processing is a major cost driver in organizations, the usage of our system results in a massive cost reduction for our client.
