"Good Product as Long as you Use the Free Version"

What do you like best?

It keeps track of my receipts so I don't have to. It makes taxes easier in the long run as well because it divides them up by categories and dates.

What do you dislike?

Doesn't automatically scan for tax paid. Which can be a hassle when you have to go back and edit each receipt that you input. Customer support isn't very timely and although they try to help, they often don't have the answers you are looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use free version, it'll be more accurate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Receipts often fade and are a pain to keep track of. Using the app makes its easier to kept everything in order. It also makes it easier when you need to search for a particular receipt because you can search vendors or price or a variety of other searches. You can also access it from anywhere that you have internet instead of using a software based application, where you need to have you computer on hand in order to access it.

"Super user friendly expense app! "

What do you like best?

Fetch is very easy to learn and use. You can take pictures of the receipts so you don't have to hang onto the paper versions and quickly submit them for reimbursement. It really eases the stress of creating expense reports and having to input all that data! I highly recommend this app over others because its incredible streamlined and saves time/ headache.

What do you dislike?

I have found Fetch to the be the easiest and best reimbursement app out there because it is customizable for your company. There is nothing I dislike about this particular app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this app compared to other. I think you will find it easy for both employees and bookkeepers. It is also customizable, which no other app I have used provides this feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company would submit paper expense reports, with receipts stapled to the expense report, which would create a lot of paper mess - along with an decreased likelihood of lost receipts making its back to the office. But Fetch allows for our receipts to be captured the moment they are handed to the employee and not only submitted for reimbursement, but also creates easy to read reports that are categorized!

What Expense Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Lifesaver for a solopreneur"

What do you like best?

Shoeboxed just does 'everything' for me - it is a great way to offload all my expenses and paper clutter, I just send those to Shoeboxed and I'm done; my accountant loves me and I feel really good knowing everything is in its place and organized when I need it.

What do you dislike?

I had some problems with the iPhone app crashing a couple years ago, but seems all good now!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need to keep all my receipts, invoices, credit card statements, delivery notifications etc. for my business. Without Shoeboxed that would be a painful "filing cabinet organization" or something like that, constantly trying to find things, and also - making collaboration with other people in the company, and my accountant much much harder. With SHoeboxed all of that is on autopilot.

"Short and easy"

What do you like best?

Convinent and easy. It’s an app and we are an all driven world. It’s about time there was an easier way to file an expense report.

What do you dislike?

I wish it showed the option to send via email on the app with the emails address. I always forget.

Recommendations to others considering the product

110% would if you are a small business needing expense filings to be cleaner and easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to turn in a full expense report. Previously I’d always forget my receipts and now it’s easy.

"I no longer have to keep a nest of receipts!"

What do you like best?

It is so easy to submit receipts to HR now. I used to have a dedicated envelope that would get lost in my giant computer bag and then I would have a nest of crumpled receipts. I just snap a picture of my receipt while checking out and submit it quickly. No more receipt nests in my purse, car, desk or pocket.

What do you dislike?

The "Reimbursable" toggle is automatically set to reimbursable. Most of my expenses are made using a company card. I had to go into settings and change the settings so that I was no longer categorizing receipts incorrectly. It is not a HUGE issue, just needed to learn the fix after a couple of mistakes and notifying HR.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It makes it easy for employees to submit their receipts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm not on the management side of my organization but ease of use has made a huge difference when communicating with our HR department and submitting expenses/receipts.

"Easy for a new business owner"

The ease of uploading images and receiving completed reports.

What do you dislike?

There was nothing that I disliked. Great product. Met all of my needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Expense reports. This made my first year as a new business owner so much easier! I was able to focus on the jobs at hand and let shoebox help with the nitty gritty details. It made tax time so much easier!

"Excited about the functionality, bugged by the user interface"

What do you like best?

The ease of uploading receipts, the ability to categorize expenses, the east to approving and paying on the backend

What do you dislike?

The new interface is WEIRD, everything is SO big, and the functionality seems to be buggy -- for instance, if I try to edit a receipt on the web version, I can do that but there is no way to save those changes. It's also hard to really tell if you've been paid for everything -- the numbers as submitted, approved, paid, always seem to be off.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Expense management, it's been easier for us to pull reports and saves employees time

"Great for people with an overwhelming amount of expenses"

What do you like best?

If you're looking for an easy way to organize the seemingly millions of receipts you accumulate while traveling for business, Shoeboxed is a great solution for your problems. It's super easy to use and the receipts are processed pretty quickly. You can then export your report and it will show the purchase price, the vendor and even the date.

The mobile app makes it easy to enter your receipts while you're on a business trip and then you don't have to worry about losing them along the way. They're saved in your phone and aren't taking up space in your photo folders.

What do you dislike?

The more documents you or your business need to submit monthly, the higher the priced plan you’ll need. The free plan is pretty limiting with the amount that you can submit so it makes it difficult to use it unless your business really wants to invest in the platform.

I found that some of the vendors weren't recognized when they went through processing even though they were listed on the receipt.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out the free version first. It will help you work out any kinks and allow you to test out the features before adopting a paid plan.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This makes tracking and reporting expenses so much easier than scanning them and manually entering the data into a spreadsheet to send to our accountant. It saves me time and takes the headache out of the process. I just wish the free plan had more flexibility with the number of receipts you can submit on a monthly basis.

"Makes things so much easier!"

What do you like best?

The ease of being able to track our teams expenses.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I can think of right now. Any issues that I had, the support team was right on fixing the problem. So at this time, we are extremely happy with this app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem we are solving is being able to track our teams expenses as we have employees that are in satellite offices. It make it easy to be able to export them into a Excel spreadsheet and use them for our expense reimbursement purposes. Makes the reimbursement go a lot quicker.

"A service that has actually improved my quality of life"

What do you like best?

Receipts, business cards, and docs go in the envelopes. I throw the envelope in a mailbox. They appear in the cloud. I now have a database of all of the docs that would have sat in various places around my home and office. Can't beat it.

What do you dislike?

Features: Price is a little high, IMHO. Search and tagging aren't as great as I would want - there's a lot of manual tagging I do myself. Tough to use for both business and personal, but I've made up my own system. UI not super intuitive.

Service: Now that I am so reliant on Shoeboxed I fear what would happen if I ever stopped using them or they ceased to exist. (Hoping if that time ever came there are/would be options for export). I also worry about the Magic Envelopes getting lost in the mail with my important docs in them (not a problem dislike of Shoeboxed per se, just a negative risk associated with using this type of service in general).

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is no better comparable product out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Peace of mind for me, my family, and my business. Everything is searchable and I'm not sitting on years and years of documents, receipts, and business card that I may never need (but know I can easily reference if I ever do!)

"Convenient and easy to use"

What do you like best?

I work out of my car and coffee shops, so it allows me to very quickly and conveniently report expenses.

What do you dislike?

I have to remember to toggle the reimbursement button off, as we have expense cards. However, when I was taking the login screenshot for this review, I saw the option to switch the default!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's incredibly easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Previously, we had to turn in paper receipts each week. It was too easy to lose receipts, so Fetch allows us to immediately report the expenses.

"Saving Trees and Less Missing Receipt Forms"

What do you like best?

I can take a picture and turn in my receipt immediately - no throwing it my purse and hoping I remember to turn it into the office! It makes life so much easier.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the reimburse button is always auto selected. For my company, we have company cards and are not reimbursed. Remembering to always switch that field is a pain.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a short cut. We are more precise with out expenses and can manage them in a more organized manner.

"Quick and easy solution"

What do you like best?

Shoeboxed is extremely convenient and cost effective. By taking quick pictures of my receipts as I get them when on work travel I have reduced the paper clutter I am carrying with me and improved my efficiency.

What do you dislike?

The accuracy of the data input is not always perfect. Sometimes it seems to me that whoever is reading and inputting the image is not making much of an effort (e.g. to find the total or include a tip in the total etc.)

Recommendations to others considering the product

For larger organizations Concur or others may be easier to integrate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am improving record keeping for deductible expenses as well as improving efficiency since I don't waste as much time managing receipts.

"Great app in theory, but feels like it isn't being maintained and has several bugs"

What do you like best?

I like that there's a free tier, which lets you take photos of your receipts and have the system try to automatically enter the total, tax, and vendor info into the app. Most of the time it's wrong, but the goal is good. It's also easy enough to add your own info to the uploaded photos.

What do you dislike?

Doesn't work with newest version of android. It is very poor at actually recognizing the tax and total fields correctly, despite how it's apparently humans that are doing the categorization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's free to try, so give it a shot. My eyes are open for better alternatives though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to have a frictionless method for expense entry and reporting.

"Awesome Expense Program"

What do you like best?

Fetch has simplified my expense reporting dramatically. Instead of spending hours submitting my expenses, it now takes me seconds The interface is dynamic enough to adapt to my organization's needs and helps us to easily process expenses. The fetch team is super responsive and can effectively troubleshoot any problem that arises.

What do you dislike?

Nothing! The product is fantastic and I highly recommend it.

"It has been good helping me to to keep track of expenses!"

What do you like best?

The ease of taking pictures of receipts to be forwarded to the person that keeps track of our expenses.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that I had to submit the receipts one at a time rather than it adding them to be submitted in total.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a good way to manage your expenses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"It's a super easy app to get expenses coded and into our accounting system."

What do you like best?

I like the ease and quickness of getting receipts recorded. There isn't any lag time from my app to our accounting manager.

What do you dislike?

Unless I am missing something, I don't see a way to split a receipt into more than one cost center.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We get receipts recorded and coded quickly and easily, which makes the preparation of financial statements more efficient.

"One unified place for all your receipts regardless of the source"

What do you like best?

I was an early adopter and have been hooked since day one. I'm not the most organized person and Shoeboxed allows me to save my receipts and access them via the web at anytime. The first source of most receipts are your standard paper receipts - usually for business lunches, office supplies, travel, etc. When I get home, these go straight to my Magical Blue envelopes provided by Shoeboxed. At the end of the month or whatever interim I choose, I mail in my envelopes and the content is scanned within a 7-10 days (there are different service levels if you need it done faster). Nowadays we also accumulate receipts on our mobile, desktops, or just in a folder in our computer. These are easily uploaded to Shoeboxed either manually via the website, desktop app, mobile app. Once the receipt is in Shoeboxed, they allow you to categorize each receipt for further organization. Anytime you need to find a receipt, you simply do a word search and print it out. I also have Shoeboxed integrated with Evernote, so all my receipts are in Evernote and Shoeboxed, I believe this is free since Evernote introduced me to this service.

What do you dislike?

Prices have climbed a tad through the years but I'm hooked and will continue to use them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are sitting on a pile of receipts with no clear way of organizing and retrieving, Shoeboxed is a no brainer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm saving so much time by having Shoeboxed scan all my receipts for future retrieval.

"Very useful low cost expense management"

What do you like best?

I work at a university. Our workflow has been based on paper receipts. Fetch is a low cost tool for digitizing receipts. It does not integrate with our university system but that's ok. It gets the job done.

What do you dislike?

The image capture interface was a little confusing. I lost some of my images the first time I used it.
