RE: OCR of incoming invoices

We are currently investigating  an integration with Doxis4 ( for a customer project (because this specific customer already uses Doxis4 in one of his entities and is happy with this solution).

If someone has already done some work on such an integration, it would be useful to know.


On the other hand we investigated for another project (where the customer came with the OCR question to us) what the real business need is behind the question.

It turned out that the real need is to have the original supplier invoices (paper based or digital) attached to the Odoo supplier invoice (which is for this project generated already from a Purchase Order for the vast majority of the supplier invoices).

Hence we are investigating a solution based upon barcode stickers on the paper invoices, allowing a bulk scan of paper invoices (e.g. once per day) and a split of the resulting PDF in separate files that get attached to the Odoo supplier invoice.

Subject: OCR of incoming invoices


Hello Community,


Is there anybody out there that does OCR of incoming invoices? Our customer has this functionality in their current solution so that the supplier name and address and the invoice number is recognized from incoming PDFs.


Ideally I'd like this integrated when an invoice arrives by email...
