Trainable locator methods

Trainable locators extract data based on the geometric relationships of items on documents, especially invoices. The trainable locator methods are:

Kofax Transformation Modules is designed to read semi-structured documents. Therefore, every project has a set of predefined fields for the most common items found on all types of invoices. These fields are almost always logically arranged on the document, and can be assigned to one of these locators.

Each locator takes advantage of existing knowledge about the geometry of these items and uses that knowledge to improve data extraction.

Train all fields that are important to your business by setting up a training set with sample documents, or use an existing knowledge base. To improve the quality of recognition, especially for a group locator with predefined subfields, train all fields on the document, even if you do not need them, such as the postage and packaging fields.
