Wanted to do a fun project including OCR technology and the Monzo application.

What it does

The Receiptful webapp receives an image from the user and sends it to Google's OCR, and upon receiving the interpreted text back, decodes and formats the data so that the receipt data is included in the transaction on the Monzo User's application.

How we built it

We designed a front end and back end integrated with Monzo's API and Google's OCR API to decode, format, and handle requests. Written in javascript.

Challenges we ran into

We originally used Microsoft Azure's OCR, but found it unsuitable due to the format of interpretations.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Building an app that utilizes APIs and AI.

What we learned

How to work with OCRs and webapp requests

What's next for Receiptful

Integration of OAuth, and integration into Monzo's app.
