Mechanical Turk–like service for analyzing receipts?

I’d like to create an Expensify type workflow in Xavier.

1. Email receipt picture to an email address (the name of the expense is in the subject line and the receipt is attached as an image)

2. A human finds the total expense amount on the receipt and enters it manually into a field.

3. The expense name from the email, subject line, the year of the expense, and the total amount are entered into three fields in a new Airtable record.

 

I’m confident that I can use a beer for steps one and three now but not two.

 

Are there any services available from the Xavier integration library that allows for prompting of human intelligence micro tasks kind of like Amazons mechanical Turk?

Hey @culstrup happy to help you with this workflow! I’m not familiar with Xavier or know exactly what that is/does but here is what I suggest to automate every step of what you described:                          

Zap 1:

Zap 2:

  • Trigger from Docparser’s “Parsed Document Data Available” trigger
  • Create a Record in Airtable

Let me know if that’s helpful and if we can expand on/clarify any of those steps!

Hi @culstrup 

Good question.

If you are looking for OCR solutions, then check out this related topic:

 

Maybe another way to think about this is with this workflow:

Use an app to extract text from an image.

Then use AI to derive the desired value from the extracted image text.

Yes, this is fantastic! Am sourcing contractors to implement...this is more than enough info; thank you, all.
