Digitize Vendor Bills with Optical Character Recognition (OCR)¶
Encoding bills manually can be a time-consuming task. Having a solution that allows you to digitize them and automatically import the data to your database reduces errors and saves you time.
Set up the feature¶
Go to, and choose whether the bills should be processed automatically or manually.
Start digitizing your bills¶
Scan your bills and then go toand upload your document. Based on your configuration, it either processes the documents automatically, or you need to click on Send for Digitalization to do it manually.
You can also create a vendor bill through the Documents app or by using an email alias on your journals.
Once the data is extracted from the PDF, you can correct it if necessary by clicking on the respective tag (available in Edit mode), and selecting the right information instead.
The more bills you scan, the better the system gets at identifying the correct data.
If you are on Odoo Online (SAAS) and have the Enterprise version, you benefit from free trial credits to test the feature.
