As we wrap up summer and head into fall, we wanted to update you on enhancements and new features added to the Veryfi OCR API Platform, we have lots to tell you about!
OCR API version 8.0
Over the past few months, API v8 transitioned from beta to production status, and it’s now the recommended API version for new users of the Veryfi platform. We’ll continue to support v7 as long as you need, however, we are no longer adding new features to v7. We encourage you to scope out your transition to API v8 as soon as you can, to take advantage of the following enhancements:
- More logical; improved JSON structure
- More stable; e.g., v7 has a limitation for the number of documents users can request with the GET call
- More flexible; e.g., in v8 there are more fields that users can update
- More fields; v8 includes many fields beyond what v7 supports. You can see the full list of JSON fields in this Interactive API schema.
For additional details on the differences between API versions 7 and 8, please consult the interactive API documentation.
New Document Types
Veryfi now supports W-2 and W-9 document types, adding to the following list: Receipts, Invoices, Hotel Folios, Purchase Orders (POs), Credit Cards, and Business Cards.
Veryfi is committed to providing the fastest, most accurate, and most secure Intelligent Document Processing platform in the industry. We’ve continued to add support for more data fields, languages, and currencies to our platform, and now can capture, extract, and transform data for over 110 fields.
The Veryfi Portal now includes an analytics dashboard with key metrics related to your document processing volumes, speed, types, sources, and time saved.
