How to import address using image capture/OCR, Zeo Route Planner
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Zeo Route Planner has always tried to ease the process of the last-mile delivery process. We have continuously pushed our team to develop those features that can help manage the logistics, and thus we always move the latest updates for our app and the web app. We have developed a new feature that will help the drivers or the logistics manager import the addresses using image capture/OCR.

OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. It is a widespread technology used to recognize text inside images, such as scanned documents and photos. OCR technology virtually converts any image containing written text (typed, handwritten, or printed) into machine-readable text data.

We have received feedback from our drivers where they explained that sometimes they get the package from the station and spend much time entering the addresses. This gave us the idea to introduce this feature though which the drivers can scan the package and get the address imported in the app.

You can also import the addresses using a spreadsheet or import addresses using QR/Bar code into the Zeo Route Planner app.
