American Express launches receipt capture app

14 November 2012  |  11104 views  |  2 American Express Web Logo

American Express has launched a new app for Android and iPhones that uses the mobile's onboard camera to snap and store receipts for later reconciliation with account statements.

Created exclusively for American Express Open business card members, ReceiptMatch can be used by company employees to capture images of receipts on the go and add a note to the transaction.

The captured images are automatically matched to the corresponding transaction on account statements.



"No more scribbling notes and trying to figure out which receipt is for which transaction on your statement at the end of the month," AmEx declares on the app download page.

This seems to be restricted to Corporate cardholders based in the US. It's certainly not available to download from Google Play in the UK.

Cant find it on Play either. Regardless seems very basic if its just capture and tag.

Been using Scanthing on Play to scan reciepts. Great thing is that it does OCR (optical character recognition) meaning I can search for receiepts on the Google Toolbar on my phone by kewords.

Not sure what this gives me over that.
