Frequently asked questions:

What is credit note parsing?

It is a technology that extracts information from credit notes. Modern credit note parsers use multiple AI neural networks and data-science techniques to extract structured data. The fields typically extracted include the company name and address of the vendor, the credit note reference number and date, the purchase order (PO) number, item/SKU data, payment information, and due date. In addition, our credit note extraction tool is compatible with a software platform to provide automation in near real-time. Contact us to find out more!

How much does Affinda’s credit note extraction software cost?

Pricing varies depending on the integrations you’ll be using, as well as the number of credit notes you’ll be parsing each month. Please get in touch with our sales team to learn more or check out credit note extractor pricing page.

Will I be able to review and modify results in Affinda’s credit note extractor?

Absolutely! Our pro credit note extraction tool includes a Viewer tool, which allows you to navigate each parsed credit note line-by-line and correct any mistakes.

Does Affinda’s credit note parsing tool work with scanned credit notes?

Yes! In fact, one of our credit note reader’s key value-adds is that it eliminates the need for costly, time-consuming manual data entry. Our advanced machine-learning AI can easily recognize text fields on scanned credit notes, greatly streamlining the process of collecting credit note data. This technology is known as Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and is essential for accurate credit note parsing.

What is OCR, and how does Affinda’s credit note parsing solution utilize it?

OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. Affinda’s software uses OCR to convert an image that doesn’t have text data — such as an credit notes — into a file that is machine-readable. What’s more, our machine-learning algorithm learns from every corrected mistake, so our OCR becomes more accurate the more it’s used!

Can I license Affinda’s credit note extraction functionality for my own platform?

Our credit note reading functionality is designed to be flexible, easy to integrate, and simple enough to white-label. Click here to get in touch with our sales team and discuss licensing within your app or platform.

How secure is this solution for sensitive documents?

Affinda makes it a priority to comply with current data protection regulations. We store all extracted credit note data in a secure location, and encrypt it to prevent it from being read by unauthorized parties. You’ll find more details here.
