Receipt Bank integrates with Xero
Receipt Bank Extract partners can now integrate their Xero Cashbook and Ledger clients with Receipt Bank.
The new solution for collecting paperwork using Receipt Bank makes it possible for users to submit their paperwork through various methods including email, direct upload and the Receipt Bank app.
Once clients have submitted their receipts and invoices, Receipt Bank automatically extracts the data. The submitted information is then published across to Xero ready to be reconciled.
For Receipt Bank users, the new integration brings time-saving features from Xero Cashbook and Ledger such as bank reconciliation, budgeting tools and fixed asset management.

Additionally, the latest update to the software includes the ability to hide users so that they no longer appear in drop-downs and lists.
