And in first place, as voted by Receipt Bank Partners, is...

1st place: Combine Mode on the mobile app

This fantastic update to the mobile app makes it possible to capture multi-page items effortlessly. 


The camera mode is ideal for those multi-page invoices or long receipts that don’t fit in one frame - snap as many images as you need and submit them all together as one item to Receipt Bank.

We can see why this was your favourite feature – with so many items submitted a month on mobile, combine mode can really save you and your clients valuable time spent in front of the scanner!

Coming soon

We have big plans for the year ahead at Receipt Bank, and are currently working on lots of feature updates and product launches to make your bookkeeping even more effortless! To kick off the new year in style, we’re very excited to be launching the first feature update of 2018.

Outstanding Paperwork was released for Practice Platform back in October to help cut the amount of time spent retrieving missing paperwork from your clients.

We’ve had some great feedback for this feature, and we have big ideas on how we can make it better. So, in the coming weeks we’ll be releasing an update* to make it even easier for you to request outstanding paperwork from your clients – you’ll be able to send a customised reconciliation report straight to their mobile device! 

Below is a sneak peak of what it will look like on the mobile app:
