Chase has added a feature to its Jot app that enables small business cardholders to capture and file receipts using their mobile phone cameras.
Free mobile app and online tool Jot sends small business owners a push alert within seconds of making a purchase with their Ink from Chase card. With the receipt capture feature, customers simply take a photo of a receipt with their mobile camera and attach it to purchases made with an Ink card.
Customers can then sort transactions, download and print receipts online and create and download reports containing purchases and receipts into accounting software, including QuickBooks and Excel.
Richard Quigley, president, Ink from Chase, says: "Small business owners are constantly on the go and do not want to be reconciling reports with a shoebox full of receipts...Receipt capture now allows Jot users to better and more easily organize their back office by throwing out that shoebox and taking those categorized receipts with them wherever they go."
Last year American Express introduced a similar app, ReceiptMatch, for its Open business card members, enabling company employees to capture images of receipts on the go and add a note to the transaction.
