In an attempt to finally eliminate receipts for business purchases, Expensify is rolling out the integration platform, ReceiptBurner. The platform is the latest in a series of innovations that Expensify has pioneered to alleviate the hassles of business travel and expense management for both employees and accountants.
Initial launch partners for Expensify include Uber, HotelTonight, Revel Systems, SaneBox, and Fujitsu ScanSnap, with more planned in the coming months. These services utilize the ReceiptBurner integration to directly send transaction data to Expensify, eliminating yet another step in the expense reporting process.
With ReceiptBurner, an expense report automatically is created as soon as a room is reserved with HotelTonight, an Uber ride is completed or a purchase is made from any store using a Revel Systems POS.
“Our dream is for receipts to become the next floppy disk,” says David Barrett, Expensify's founder and CEO. “We revolutionized the expense management space in 2010 with SmartScan, our patented receipt OCR technology. ReceiptBurner is the next evolution of that dream. With every vendor added to the platform, we move closer to a future where our users don't even need to open our app to capture receipts; Expensify will have already detected the purchase and imported all of the transaction data automatically.”
Expensify already is expanding the program to include a variety of other booking tools, point of sale providers and any other service that would typically require an employee to keep track of a receipt.
Since 2008, Expensify has revolutionized the expense reporting process by creating a fully automated, paperless system with an easy to use mobile and web app that streamlines the expense process from receipt to reimbursement.
