Press Release

AI inside’s Developer’s API is Used in New “Resona One-Stop Payment” Business-to-Business Account Settlement Service

Assisting in Automatic Creation of Payment Data from Billing Statements

Tokyo, July 4, 2022– AI inside Inc., a provider of an AI platform with the mission of “to bring AI to every being in the world and contribute to a richer future society,” announces its character recognition API, which is a part of “Developer’s API”, AI inside’s intelligence API collection, is being used in “Resona One-Stop Payment,” a business-to-business account settlement service. This service was jointly developed by Resona Bank, Limited., which is part of the Resona Group, and NTT Data Corporation. AI inside’s platforms, which provide AI infrastructure, will continue to promote business process improvement and transformation through hyperautomation by coordinating with various products and elements of social infrastructures.

Overview of “Resona One-Stop Payment”

Operations of account settlement in Japan often involve manual work and inefficient processes as the result of delays in switching to electronic payment methods. To change this payment environment, Resona Bank and NTT Data developed the Resona One-Stop Payment service to improve the efficiency of payment operations that involve printed or faxed billing statements.

The service uses AI-OCR to digitize  information in billing statement and automatically generate payment data. The service then seamlessly integrates with Resona Bank’s “Resona Business Direct,” an internet banking service to deposit payments. When payment is completed, the corresponding billing statements are automatically stored electronically for easy retrieval. The entire payment operation process is automated and provided as a new one-stop business-to-business payment platform.

In the process of creating bank payment data for this service, AI inside’s character recognition API, one of the “Developer’s APIs” provided as a set of Intelligence APIs, has been adopted as the AI-OCR engine.

The AI-OCR engine can read handwritten characters with high accuracy, which were considered difficult to read with conventional OCR, and extract and structure information from forms and images of all formats.
