Service update required


Scan and Capture or SmartPDF business documents are validated by referring to the Scan and Capture Specification and Validation Guide (SVG) or newer Data Capture Guide (DCG). This reference document, which contains the details and rules specified by the customer, is maintained by Basware with the customer’s support. As part of the setup, a list of keywords is defined to detect and capture the field values from the image. Keywords contain words and phrases to assist with identifying data items on invoices.

If delivered business documents have missing or incorrect data that can be prevented by updating the current setup and rules you have in place for the data capture service, Basware is detailing the proposed changes and is requesting you to review and approve or reject the implementation of such a service update request. As part of continuous improvement actions in the data capture service, Basware will now, as of July 1st, 2021, modify keywords directly in case the feedback team is confident that the keyword can be added/modified/removed. The follow-up incident is created when this task is done to advise you of this modification. You can always reject the keyword modification by commenting on the follow-up incident.


In the invoice image, the supplier has provided "IN NR 12345" and the value "12345" was expected to be captured as the invoice number. However, "IN NR" is not added as a keyword for the "Invoice number" field.
