Feature List

Which Data Fields can Smartscan extract?

Below is an overview of all the features we support.

The total amount, supplier name, and the issued date on are essential parts of a business document. Smartscan also provides more details from the receipt based on the region, such as IBAN, Bank Account Number for European businesses, Payment IDs, etc.

  • The caller can specify which prediction operations they want the API to perform.
  • We continuously work with our integrations to expand our feature and language support. Please contact us if you would like us to look into new features.


The current setup of Smartscan exclusively scans the first and last pages of a PDF document. This targeted approach significantly speeds up the prediction process.

Field information


Note that ORDER_DATE, INVOICE_NUMBER and SUPPLIER_CORPORATE_ID are deprecated and will be removed from the default set in a future release. In the case of SUPPLIER_CORPORATE_ID it's recommended that users consider using either Supplier VAT number or Supplier Org Number instead of the deprecated supplier corporate ID, which can take either form.

  • TOTAL_INCL_VAT, TOTAL_EXCL_VAT, and TOTAL_VAT will always be returned as absolute values.
  • SUPPLIER_CORPORATE_ID: It's recommended that users consider using either Supplier VAT number or Supplier Org Number instead of the deprecated supplier corporate ID, which can take either form.
  • DOCUMENT_DATE In our system, a document cannot be dated in the future.
  • Upcoming features: Smartscan currently cannot predict the Order Reference, but you can provide it in the feedback calls as ORDER_REFERENCE, which we can then use in the future to train Smartscan.

Default Feature Set

The DEFAULT feature includes the following fields:


For each feature the caller can set maxResults (defaults to 1) and minConfidence (defaults to HIGH).

If both DEFAULT and a specific feature is set, the (settings for the) specific feature will take precedence.
