The SDK can capture all types of documents: printed or handwritten, images and/or text, black and white or colored. This includes proof of delivery (PoD), bill of loading (BoL), driver license, weight ticket, insurance policy, receipt and invoice. Legibility can be enhanced with multiple filters (monochrome, black-and-white and color) that the scanner can automatically apply based on the page content. Various image formats are supported – PNG, JPEG – and multipage documents as PDF and TIFF. The OCR module can detect and extract text in over 100 languages.
The SDK is most used by carriers, shippers and logistics specialists to equip employees (truck drivers, warehouse workers…) with dedicated apps that can collect documents for uploading onto their ERP. It's also integrated by enterprise software publishers who edit TMS and WMS applications for carriers, shippers and delivery platforms.
The automation feature allows to scan both in high-quality and in a few seconds: page detection to identify border of documents, cropping and perspective correction to remove background and deskew pages captured at an angle, noise removal to eliminate crumples and shadows, border cleaning to torn and folded edges disappear, auto-orientation to recognize upside-down documents, distortion correction, and of course smart filters to enhance both black-and-white and color documents.
The SDK is available as a subscription, for a flat annual fee, and on a per-application basis. The licenses cover both iOS and Android, with no usage restriction (unlimited number of users and scans). The standard licenses come with all features including OCR, image enhancements, PDF generation; software updates and customer support.
The price of the annual or multi-year license depends on the application that the scanner integrates. Quotes are tailored to make the scanner affordable to most licensees by taking into account criteria such as application's category, target users, publisher's industry and distribution model. They can be obtained by submitting a short form from the customer portal. Trial licenses are free and can be renewed during evaluation and integration.
