What is OCR API?

It is an online interface that helps entities extract relevant data from OVDs and other documents of an individual for further verification. Our API is swift and reliable.

How does OCR API help me?

You can verify if a customer is legit or not. With our OCR API, you can extract the OVD  details provided by a customer. This data can be retrieved and checked for credibility. This will protect you from fraudsters.

How Does OCR API work?

Once the user provides the scanned copy or image of the OVD or other documents, the API extracts the data with the use of an AI-based decision engine. The extracted data is verified using other APIs. You will be provided with a response with the required details.

How accurate is the data extraction process?

There is minimal to zero chances of any error in the extraction. The data is obtained using our completely reliable AI-based decision engine API. Using our other APIs the data is double-checked with the government’s system and the response is generated rendering the process precise and error-free.

Are there any requirements for it to work?

You only need the clear scanned image or photo of the OVD or other documents for this API to work. If the image is blurry, the extraction will be stopped. We do not compromise with precision as it may increase the risk.
