AutoEntry – Automated Data Entry

AutoEntry is an app designed to take away the pain and hassle of manual data entry to your accounting software for your invoices, receipts and bank statements. Simply take a photograph, scan or email the documents to the app and let it do the data entry work for you. Once your data is uploaded you can then categorise the documents available within AutoEntry however you like and then publish the results straight to your QuickBooks account. You can even teach AutoEntry ‘rules’ so you don’t have to do the process twice! Very smart.

AutoEntry allows you to easily share data with your accountant and removes the time (and trees!) spent on processing paper documents. You upload your information, and as soon as you’ve categorised and published it, the data will be instantly available for your accountant to see in your accounting software.

By spending less time on data entry and chasing physical documents, you can have more time back to focus on running and building your business.
