Wells Fargo rolls out expense receipt capture app for corporate mobile customers

Crumpled, unreadable, and missing paper receipts are no longer a nuisance for corporate credit cardholders who need them to file expense reports and get reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses.

Instead, no matter where Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) Commercial Card customers are, with the new feature on Wells Fargo CEO Mobile®, they can immediately upload paper receipts for processing and reimbursement by simply snapping their photos.

One company that already has made the switch from paper expense receipts to mobile images is Universal Avionics, an international equipment manufacturer and marketer in Tucson, Arizona. This company uses the Wells Fargo CEO Mobile and Commercial Card Expense Reporting (CCER) services to manage its corporate purchasing card program and says it will greatly benefit from the added efficiency.

"Throughout our organization, it's difficult for us to manage all of our receipts, and we often miss some," said Curtis Thelen, program administrator and Wells Fargo cardholder at Universal Avionics. "This new solution will help us increase our percentage of receipts collected. I also see this becoming the preferred method over using a scanner and e-mailing the image. I can't think of a better way of doing it."

After taking a photo of a receipt with an iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone or tablet, Wells Fargo corporate cardholders sign in to the CEO Mobile app, click the Wells Fargo Commercial Card Expense Reporting (CCER) service, and tap "Upload Receipt." It's that easy. CCER transmits the electronic receipt for reconciliation.

"Our customers have seen their share of expense receipts go missing or through the washing machine. Now we've made the process easy," said Secil Watson, head of Wells Fargo Wholesale Internet Solutions. "This new mobile solution significantly streamlines the process of expense reporting."

CCER also provides company card administrators with tools to set spending limits, e-mail notifications to cardholders, generate reports, and send alerts about purchasing trends or unusual and unauthorized cardholder behaviors.

"Mobile adoption among our corporate customers is increasing at a fast pace, as mobility gives them the ability to perform time-sensitive transactions no matter where they are," added Watson. "Customers want to complete their financial to-do list no matter where they are and what device they are on."

Through the CEO Mobile service, customers can perform many of the same tasks they access through the CEO portal, as well as additional functions such as uploading business expense receipts or depositing checks using an iPhone, iPad, or Android device
