I am Europe based and I was a subscriber for a year. I used it for my small e-commerce business.

2018-05-04

Simple management of invoices, receipts, all in one place and accessible from everywhere.

Pros

I like the idea of having all my invoices, payments, receipts, etc, stored in one safe place, accessible from everywhere.

Cons

The magic envelope service at that time was not available in Europe.

Very Helpful for a Small Business!

2018-05-07

I have difficulty keeping track of my documents and receipts and you've covered me for several years.

Pros

I don't have to think about it since it's connected to my Google email account. Almost all of my receipts go through email.

Cons

I'd like to get notifications if Shoeboxed thinks an email should have a receipt and doesn't or where problems occur.

I use Shoeboxed for the mileage tracking feature, and it's the bomb, excellent.

2018-05-01

Pros

Makes it so easy to run mileage reports at end of year and export. It can be exported to CSV into excel

Cons

It would be nice if it would constantly track the roads I drive on, not just the most direct route.

Best company. Best product. Game changer.

2018-05-04

Pros

I LOVE mailing in and getting digital scanned copies of my receipts. I had 2 years worth of backlog on my physical receipts and having it digitally organized before the ink faded was huge.

Cons

I wish making expense reports was slightly easier for different accounts -- personal, professional, business, etc.

Great for organizing but processing can be a little slow/glitchy

2018-05-01

Pros

Having everything in one place on my phone is great, and being able to email my expense report directly from the app is a nice feature.

Cons

The processing grabs the wrong information from the photo of the receipt- for instance, if it's a screen shot of an invoice on my phone, it will list the merchant as "Verizon" and I have to spend extra time going back and fixing those.

Very useful tool for tracking and storing receipts. Needs ability to save various reports.

2018-05-07

storage and search capability

Pros

Scans and reads multiple receipts at once via ScanSnap. Categorizes based on credit card number (though not always accurately).

Cons

Needs 1) ability to import directly into Quickbooks Desktop, and 2) needs more robust reporting tools.

Extremely satisfied with the app; it's user interface and speed of processing. Great Functionality.

2018-05-07

Pros

I like how I can export reciepts to make it faster to complete expense reports. i like the human touch of the support staff.

Cons

Within the app I scan a card or reciept to process, then it also shows up (for me) in my Photos on my phone, notebook, cloud account. Once I've confirmed I have the info captured, I know have to go into my photos app and delete those pics.

It does not capture all my email receipts b/c of formatting, even though the subject sometimes says "receipt" in it

Excellent switch for QuickBooks!

2013-10-17

For what I am using it for (seemless QuickBooks integration of credit card charges), Shoeboxed is WAY ahead of Expense Cloud!

Pros

Great categorization! can import chart of accounts, make rules for vendors, and effortless export to QuickBooks!

Cons

Would like to be able to edit category names once imported from Chart of Accounts.

So happy I found this product

2018-04-13

Pros

I found Shoeboxed a few years ago, and had never thought about a "receipt organization service", but what they do is truly "magic": I just send them my receipts, bills and all sorts of documents and they, within just like a day, scan everything and upload it to my mobile app and online account - I always have my receipts at my fingertips now, and all of that without any work required on my part.

Cons

Their support is amazing, first of all, but I had times where I couldn't reach them via phone when I wanted to run a report etc.

Removes clutter and keeps track of expenses, accessible from anywhere

2018-05-04

Clutter reduction, expense management

Pros

Also that it accepts electronic receipts with a simple forward from my email. overall, very good value for the cost and reduces clutter massively.

Cons

Some manual processing is required to approve and resolve expenses so an eventual AI based system would be great.

2018-05-07

easy and convenient mileage tracking.

Pros

The option to export the results into Excel spreadsheets makes expense reports very convenient.

Cons

Sometimes the mileage tracking doesn't work. I'll go somewhere 10 miles away, and the system will only pull up the last .1 miles.

I track multiple credit cards as well as documents to attach to our quickbooks software.

2018-05-01

Pros

That it is generally easy to use and I can easily search for most receipts with either an amount or the vendor.

Cons

Also, that the automatic capture of data doesn't always seem to work, especially when reading the credit card number.

Shoeboxed takes many hours out of preparing our business and personal information for taxes.

2018-05-01

The biggest benefit by far, is the time that is saved organizing both personal and small business receipts for proper tax/business purposes.

Pros

The ability to submit both paper and electronic receipts, easily and quickly organize them through the online interface, and prepare them for our use with reports, taxes, etc.

Cons

The online interface sometimes operates a little slow when opening up and looking through individual receipts, but it is a minor inconvenience.

Easy Organization

2019-10-31

Pros

Shoeboxed helps to make that process easy by just dropping everything in an envelope and a few days later it is scanned in our account which we can then save or import into accounting software.

Cons

We use wave accounting so it would be nice to have an integration for that
