Frequently Asked Questions

What is MetaBrite? 2016-07-06T22:11:25+00:00

At MetaBrite we specialize in extracting consumer purchase insights from receipts. Our SDK can be added in minutes to any mobile application to enable high-quality receipt capture. Once uploaded, MetaBrite’s fully-automated processing technology identifies exact items purchased and all supporting trip details from each receipt.

Our long-term goal is to organize the world’s purchase information to provide meaningful consumer insights for the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry.

How does MetaBrite work? 2016-07-06T22:12:46+00:00

MetaBrite has three separate parts:

  • Collect: We collect receipt data through our easy-to-install SDK that sits directly within your mobile application.
  • Process: Our proprietary machine learning technologies help you extract SKU-level information at near 100% accuracy for uniquely identifiable products.
  • Deliver: We deliver real-time purchasing data back to you daily. Reports are available as web services so you only pay for what you need, when you need it, at any scale.
What kind of companies do you work with? 2016-10-23T15:57:51+00:00

MetaBrite partners with companies doing mobile consumer research, loyalty & rewards programs, targeted marketing companies, and personal finance/lifestyle management.

What are the advantages of working with MetaBrite? 2016-07-06T22:14:58+00:00

Machine learning in conjunction with our meta catalog makes the difference. Most companies only provide receipt transcription using a combination of OCR and humans. This is both slow and costly.

MetaBrite combines information from multiple public and private data sources with our own language processing and machine learning algorithms to translate a retailer’s obscure receipt abbreviations into an actual UPC. As an added bonus, our system gets smarter with every receipt we process because the system learns new abbreviation expansions in real time.

What are the technical requirements? 2016-10-23T15:57:51+00:00

MetaBrite’s SDK is simple to add to any Android or iOS mobile application with only a few lines of code. Captured images and summary/line-item reports are stored on secure S3 servers that can be integrated into your backend using AWS APIs.

How much does it cost? 2016-10-23T15:57:51+00:00
