Some quick notes about Invox inc (old name = Klavis inc). They sell service/software that can scan/convert images of invoice into data.
Last week, I found some interesting scan book on Internet Book. Then I found some tools such as tesseract and successful converted 1 page into pdf. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gachiemchiep/source_code/master/toy_projects/convert_unstructured_pdf/convert_pdf.ipynb A quick idea appear in my mind : “whether I can create a startup with this?”.
Unfortunately, this time again I found a company that do the same thing. …. The company is called Ivox.
As in Klavis homepage,they started their business in 2012.
Their product is quite simple : they use OCR to convert scanned invoice images into data.
The product is called streamed. For the premium plan, it will cost 8950円 for the first 100 invoice sheets per month. Then for the exceed sheet, each will be charged 20円. They even have an operator team for manual checking the invoice. In 2020, they sold their product to more than 3000 accounting office and more than 3 million invoice sheets are processed. If each sheet cost 20円, then the earning is only about 600 thousands usd.
Then in 2019, they start a new service called [Ivox](https://invox.jp]. This time look like they combine streamed with some famous ERP serivce and rise the price higher. Each sheet are now cost 50円 (without operator) or 100円 (with operator).
