Rent Receipt OCR
This article walks you through the building process of an OCR API that extracts data from Rent Receipt using our deep learning engine.
- You’ll need a free account. Sign up and confirm your email to login.
- You’ll need at least 20 Rent Receipt images or pdfs to train your OCR.
Define your Rent Receipt use case
First, we’re going to define what fields we want to extract from your Rent Receipt.
- Name: The landlord's full name
- Date: The date of the receipt
- Rent Amount: The collected rent amount
- Rent collection date: The rent collection date
- Rented good: The description of rented good
That’s it for our use case. Feel free to add any other relevant data to fit your requirements.
Deploy your API
Once you have defined the list of fields you want to extract, head over to the platform and press the ‘Create a new API’ button.
You land now on the setup page. Here is the image you can use for setting up the API, and my setup looks like this:
Once you’re ready, click on the “next” button. We are going to specify the data types for each of the fields we want our API to extract.
To go further, you can download this json config to set up your data model or do it manually.
Name type String that never contains numeric characters.
Date: type Date with US format.
Rent Amount: type Number without specifications.
Rent collection date: type Date with US format.
Rented Good Description: type String that never contains numeric characters.
Once you’re done setting up your data model, press the Start training your model button at the bottom of the screen.
Train your Rent Receipt OCR
You’re all set!
Now is the time to train your Rent Receipt deep learning model in the Training section of our API.
In a few hours (minutes if you're fast), you’ll get your first model trained and will be able to use your custom OCR API for parsing Rent Receipt in your application.
To get more information about the training phase, please refer to the Getting Started tutorial. If you have any questions regarding your use case, feel free to reach out on our chat!
