OCR - AI Builder - Power Automate - Business Central

Posted on by 15,409


I know in theory anything is possible. But how about practically? I wonder if anyone successfully build AI Builder or any OCR then use Power Automate to push the data back to Business Central? 

For example can we ask vendor to send the invoice to specific email. Then use AI builder to extract data, then use power automate to match the data with record in BC (purchase order) then create invoice if all is matching? 

Or can customer send Purchase Order to an email then through AI Builder , Power Automate we create sales order in Business Central?

    Hi, For OCR, there is a standard OCR function in BC.


    For AI Builder, from the past, Microsoft has a free extension that can easily analyze pictures.

    The above two functions do not need to be customized, nor do you need Power Automate, I hope it can give you some tips.
