Scans Overview

The scans endpoint lets you digitize and extract data from various documents. There are several common scenarios for the scans endpoints.

  1. Shipping Label - Digitizing and extracting data from a shipping label via API or our Vision SDK. A common use case here is to determine the recipient for a package and then match that recipient to a contact.
  2. Inventory Label - Get data from complicated labels that may or may not contain a barcode and have quantity values. This is a common use case for some warehouses with plastic wrapped pallets used for inventory staging. Our Vision SDK can automatically detect barcodes and select the optimal scanning method to optimze cost.
  3. Bill of Lading - (coming soon) Extract data to create an inventory manifest for quicker receiving operations.
  4. Receipts & Invoices - (coming soon) Extract data from receipts and invoices.

After a scan is created, we'll save the data and store the image for you.

Object IDs

To make the development experience a little easier, all delivery object ids will be prefixed with scan_ to make them easy to distinguish.
