If you’re not using automated receipt processing, you’re already behind

Save time and money with automatic receipt processing. So how do you automate receipt processing?

It’s easy to fall behind as a business owner or executive with the demand for your time and attention. Sometimes, it’s possible to completely drop the ball and miss filing your business expenses.

When it comes to business expenses, even the most organized business owners can fall behind. Receipts and invoices can easily be misplaced before you get them to the right person. Time and effort spent looking for receipts can be better spent elsewhere.

When staff don’t file receipts promptly, it results in tax overpayment reducing what you get to take home, but more importantly, it’s harder to track how well you’re doing. Luckily, there’s a way for you to keep your money and improve your record-keeping without wasting resources trying to stay on top of filing or scanning receipts.

Falling Behind

Previously you had to collect and organize paper receipts. The issue is, frequent distractions come up and your process gets interrupted. A small distraction and you leave the receipt behind, forget about it entirely, you lose it before you store it safely.

However, there’s a second issue. The information from the source documents that don’t get lost and need to be entered into excel. This too is full of potential problems. Some common issues include double entries and human error. There’s also the cost and wasted productivity of having staff enter the data into excel when it can be done quicker and more reliably using this software. Add this to the time lost trying to track down those lost and misplaced receipts. Wasting staff hours doing something mundane and error-prone is just a bad business decision. If you understand what’s available on the market, it’s just not an effective use of time or money.

There are a lot of disadvantages to the old method, but when everything was done by hand, it served a purpose. Today, companies can’t afford to keep doing it. Organizations that utilize modern automation will overtake those still operating with traditional methods as they make better use of their time.

The new, streamlined process to save time and money:

Receipt Bank is a mobile device app that aids small business owners save time and increase their productivity when it comes to filing receipts.
