OCR as a service

Fully OCR a document, then work with it how you like. Get all the results back and parse out the text yourself, or apply our zonal-OCR templates or region-based queries to the results. You’re in full control of how you use us.

Easy integration through REST

It’s in the name—We have a clean and easy-to-use REST API that will have you up and working minutes after creating your account.


Our servers are scary-fast, and everything’s virtual so we are always on the latest tech.


Our share-nothing architecture lets us seamlessly spread workload across multiple data centers and add capacity to any of our instances in a snap. Which means no slowdowns for you.


We protect your data on-the-wire and at-rest as well. We know how to protect your sensitive data.
