OCR processing

OCR Services for Invoices

Optical Character Recognition, or OCR, is the primary tool we use for data capture at Pearl Scan. Our invoice scanning software uses this technology to convert invoices scanned as images into a searchable format. This means that AP departments can search for invoices by keyword, reference or value.

Fast Turnaround

Thanks to our expert invoice scanning service, turnaround can be as fast as 4 hours. This means you can let us take away the stress of processing invoices without any downtime. Our speedy service also means you can take advantage of early payment discounts from suppliers. This can often pay for the cost of scanning in itself, so you’ve got everything to gain by working with Pearl Scan.


Our invoice scanning workshop has been custom-built for security and confidentiality. Accredited to PCI, ISO 27001, ISO 9001 and CSE, we’ve equipped our premises with 24/7 CCTV and Red-Care systems. The site is monitored by dedicated security personnel and we vet all our employees through a rigorous screening process.

Optional Invoice Shredding

Once the invoice scanning and data capture is said and done, we can shred the originals under HMRC and BSI standards. Don’t worry – we’ll only do that with your approval, after an agreed amount of time. If you don’t want us to shred your invoices, we can return them to you or store them.
