About Invoice Extraction

With Invoice Extraction, you can automatically extract data from invoices such as invoice ID, invoice date, the amount due, and many more, regardless of the invoice layout. Be less prone to errors with this advanced feature as it leverages OCR to recognize and extract data fields automatically. Simply check the data fields you need and DataSnipper automatically extracts relevant data directly to your Excel workbook and creates a reference to the source document.
