Seeing 2020 with LEADTOOLS Computer Vision: Forms Recognition SDK

But how are these companies recognizing this data, or are they manually entering the data themselves? Let’s say you’re dealing with invoices, and you receive hundreds a day. There’s no need to waste time entering different names and numbers when a computer can do it all for you within seconds.
