Test Drive Our Smart Engines

A range of free demo apps for intelligent document procesing allows you to experience the power of Smart Engines software in a real-world context.

Why not experience the power of Smart Engines for yourself? Our free demo apps allow you to test the capabilities of our identity document recognition software on mobile devices and scanners.

Simply display any document to the camera, allow the app to recognise and capture the necessary data, then store in a file, form or work sheet.

Demo apps require access to the camera on your smartphone or device. Some will also request access to the photo gallery in order to demonstrate single-photo document recognition. Others include ‘Make a request’ functionality to enable the sending of information from your e-mail application to the Smart Engines sales department.

Demo apps do not make any copies of your data and never send data to external servers.

Recognition is performed entirely on the device with the sole purpose of allowing you to test the capabilities for yourself. Rest assured that our demos contain no malware or viruses.

Download a demo from Google Play or the App Store only to ensure you use the latest official app.
