1. What is the technology behind Taggun?
A: Taggun takes advantage of Google Vision API (the most robust OCR text extraction in the market. Yes, we have tested a few). And we build super smart algorithm to extract metadata like purchase amount, tax amount, date, merchant name and etc... from the extracted text. The platform is built on node.js and is hosted on AWS with Docker for speed and scale. See the full stack here.

2. Does Taggun supports receipts from countries outside of US and Canada?
A: Yes. Taggun can support 56 languages. Caveats: When entering a new other-than-English market, extraction and accuracy rate will be lower. Rest assured, the accuracy rate will improve vastly once we have enough data to train the algorithm.

3. What about security with Taggun?
A: All images are encrypted when with AES256 when in transit and at rest. Taggun does not store any sensitive personally identifiable information (PII). Any non-sensitive information such as IP Address will have standard security safeguards and controls. By the way, there will also be an option available to opt-out storage of any kind.

4. So, what is Taggun? Why do we need this when Google Vision, Microsoft Cognitive Services and other OCR providers already solved the problem?
A: For simple image-to-text OCR scan, Google Vision provides the best OCR results in the market. But the OCR'ed text are not perfect. Take for example, "TOTAL $14.53" can be extracted as "T0T AL S14, 53" Taggun does the hardwork to convert these half-garbage text into machine consumable format like { totalAmount: 14.53 } . So that apps can work with the data directly.

5. How many receipts can I scan during the 30 free trial?
A: As many as you wish. We will send you an email reminder before the trial ends, and you can cancel anytime.
