Capturing commercial invoices
ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices includes a special type of project called Commercial Invoice Processing, which allows you to capture data from commercial invoices without any additional preparations. For this type of project, a preconfigured Document Definition is available which contains the fields, rules, country settings, and validation rules required to capture data from commercial invoices.
A commercial invoice is a customs document for goods crossing international borders as part of international trade. Commercial invoices contain information about the vendor, consignee, specific delivery-related information, and additional information about the goods. You will be able to use a database of companies, create training batches for documents originating from a specific company.
To capture purchase order fields, the program uses both FlexiLayouts and machine learning based on neural networks. Both methods are intelligently combined to achieve the best possible results. Any fields that the program fails to capture using its machine learning algorithms will be captured by means of a suitable FlexiLayout.
To start capturing commercial invoices, create a new ABBYY FlexiCapture project, selecting Commercial Invoice Processing for the type of your project. The newly created project will include a Document Definition named Commercial Invoice, complete with all the required fields and rules.
Data capture can be improved by using automated training. The training batches will be associated with the ID of the company ordering goods.
Only English-language commercial invoices are supported (for all countries using this document format).
