How can Hypatos Community Edition help developers?

Companies spend valuable resources to process

  • invoices from their suppliers
  • receipts from their employees regarding business expenses

Manual processing is expensive, inaccurate, slow and demotivating for employees. However, they can be automated freely using Hypatos Community Edition.

Invoice payments

Any business receives invoices that need to be paid, checked for VAT compliance and processed as accounting entries. Hypatos Community Edition allows developers to auto extract machine readable data from invoices so the most important next step (i.e. payment) can also be automated.

Hypatos Community Edition extracts 16 core data points from German and English invoices including sender details and payment details so payment can be completed based on the Community Edition output.

Travel & expense payments

Extracting data from receipts is necessary to make timely payments to employees and to record VAT payments so they can be netted off from company’s own VAT payments during purchases. Hypatos Community Edition enables developers to auto extract data from receipts freely so they can automate receipt payments and build more advanced solutions for their clients.

How can developers use the Community Edition?

Hypatos Community Edition is available as a cloud API. Following the API documentation, developers can send images to the API and receive JSON files including the extracted data in the response.

Developers can sign up to the cloud API from Hypatos website by signing the API terms and sharing their name, email and contact information.
