smartFIX is a product portfolio for knowledge based extraction of data from any document format. The system automatically determines the document type and extracts all relevant data for the respective business process. Data that is unreliably recognized is forwarded to a verification workplace for manual checking. In general, users have no difficulties to interpret the document data and wonder why the system needs additional input. For that reason, we implemented an explanation component that is used to justify extraction results, thus, increasing confidence of users. The component is using a semantic log making it possible to provide understandable explanations. We illustrate the benefits of that kind of technology in contrast to the current smartFIX Log Viewer by means of a preliminary user experiment.
