Less manual input, more control
Tracking expenses is not for the faint-hearted 🙂 When you have a mountain of receipts and checks, it’s important to enter all the data correctly. You can do it manually, but there is also an option to take advantage of the technologies we have on hand.
The mobile app we have worked on for our client’s business does just that – it uses phone cameras (thanks to Android and iPhone creators, who made them quite sophisticated) and optic character recognition or OCR functionality to identify the information on the receipt and file it into the correct place in the database.
The challenge we needed to tackle in the development of this app was the fact that restaurants and various businesses have different types of receipts.
- The shapes of the receipts are different.
- The information on the receipt is different – some might include tips, some might include VAT or some other taxes, some just write down the purchased positions, their price, and total cost.
- The same data can be located in different places on different receipts.
Our app recognizes the main information bits that are necessary for basic accounting purposes and as a result, it automates receipts management and frees a lot of time by removing boring routine operations.
