"boost_mode" is a flag that tells Veryfi whether boost mode should be enabled.
When set ON, Veryfi will skip data enrichment steps* but will process the document faster. By default the boost mode is disabled.
boost_mode = 0 - disabled
boost_mode = 1 - enabled
Note: Version 8 abandons
1/0 style booleans for a more traditional
true/false style of boolean.
If you use v8:
boost_mode = false - disabled
boost_mode = true - enabled

How faster speed is achieved?
boost_mode is on, Veryfi will skip data enrichment steps and process documents faster.
boost_mode may skip:
vendor address validation
vendor check using maps
skips vendor checks against government DB of registered businesses
skips logo search on the document
skips auto-crop on a back-end
skips auto-rotation on a back-end
skips blur detection
skips document conversion to readable PDF
skips barcode detection
skips duplicate detection
What will be skipped largely depends on a document's details. If a receipt is simple there could not be any noticeable differences in extraction results.
