Key Accomplishments:

        Designed and architected Document Management System specifically applied to manage expenses through receipts. Smart Receipt is designed as Azure Cloud service having Web Role hosting the website and Worker Role doing background process. The Web Role is hosting ASP.Net MVC application running .Net Framework 4.5 and communicates to the Worker Role through Azure Queues. The scanned receipt image can be uploaded from the website or using mobile device such as iPhone/iPad using REST API. The uploaded file can be jpeg image file or pdf file with multiple jpeg images. Once the file is uploaded, the server saves the file either in Blob or external Google drive depending on the user login. The file information is stored in SQL Azure. The ID of the file is placed in Azure Queue so that the Worker Role could retrieve the file and process through Abbyy's OCR engine. The Abbyy’s Finereader engine extracts the data from the receipt by using engine API. The extracted data such as Vendor is verified through self-learning engine.
