Digitize Vendor Bills with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) - Odoo 13.0

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 Accounting ‣ Settings ‣ Bill Digitalization, and choose whether the bills should be processed automatically or manually.

Activate the feature going to the settings application in Odoo Accounting

Start digitizing your bills

Scan your bills and then go to Accounting ‣ Vendors ‣ Bills and 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.

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.
