QR Code Reader API: A New Solution for Data Extraction

When it comes to data automation, QR codes have emerged as a ubiquitous and versatile tool. But they’re much better when integrated with advanced Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technologies. This is where Mindee's QR Code Reader API comes into play. Using state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms, our API is engineered to perform precise, rapid data extraction.

In under a second, the API extracts a set of data from your PDFs or photos of any document.

If you want to integrate QR code reading functionality into your app or system, the following information is for you.

Technical Specifications

Multi-Dimensional Support

Mindee's QR Code Reader API is not a rudimentary QR code scanner; it is a technologically advanced solution capable of extracting data from any document. It works for both one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) barcodes.

This multi-dimensional support ensures comprehensive data extraction capabilities.

Orientation Detection

The API incorporates an advanced orientation detection mechanism, capable of recognizing and adjusting for image rotations of 0, 90, and 270 degrees. This feature is particularly beneficial for automating data extraction from documents that may not always be aligned optimally.

High Accuracy

The API employs sophisticated deep learning algorithms, ensuring a high degree of computational accuracy. It provides confidence scores as part of its output, thereby reducing or potentially eliminating the need for manual data verification.

Security Protocols

Data security is of paramount importance, and to that end, the API ensures encrypted data communication via HTTPS (SSL/TLS), adhering to industry-standard security protocols.

You Can Use Our QR Code Reader API

Our API’s versatility and robustness make it an invaluable asset for organizations aiming to automate and optimize their data extraction workflows. It’s relevant across a broad spectrum of industries and applications; inventory management, ticket verification, healthcare record maintenance, legal documentation, and so much more.
