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.

 

 

Prerequisites

  1. You’ll need a free beta account. Sign up and confirm your email to login.
  2. 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. 

 

 

Rent Receipt OCR API

 

  • 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 ‘build a new endpoint’ 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:

 

 

Set up your Rent Receipt OCR API

 

Once you’re ready, click on the “next step” 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.

Once you’re done setting up your data model, press the Data model ready? start training button at the top of the screen.

 

 

Train your Rent Receipt OCR

 

 

Deep learning Rent Receipt OCR API

 

 

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.
