What is receipt OCR?

Receipt OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is a software technology that scans images of receipts and digitises the receipt content, including line item information, into structured and meaningful data comprehensible to other software. Commonly extracted data in OCR receipt recognition includes the total amount, tax amount, date, and merchant name of the receipt.

“Taggun’s OCR capabilities for the particular receipt use case that Ramp has are better than any other solution that we’ve found on the market. We did look at a few others, the difference is that all the other’s are for general purpose for example, documents and invoices whereas Taggun is excellent at the particular receipt and invoice OCR we require.”
