Jason: JotNot for Receipts

In Money, Organization, Super Helpful Info, Tech on 10/25/2011 at 2:57 pm

Jason is a super talented, smart and very hard-working developer and the owner of Surprise Highway. We share an office, play footsies when his obnoxiously long legs cross the line into my space, and often go to lunch together.

Once at lunch, Jason snapped a picture of his receipt. I asked him what he was going to do with that.

“I scan it using JotNot, and it automatically syncs with Dropbox or Evernote.”

Take a picture of a business expense receipt, save it to the cloud easily, get rid of the receipt. If ever audited, turn over the digital folder. Brilliant.

Other scanning apps don’t make this as easy. I’ve looked. They make you email yourself a PDF version, then download it, then save it manually. At least three extra steps.

So I invested the $0.99 today and am scanning receipts happily, and pitching them.

{And if you’re stuck in 2003, you can also send faxes directly from the app.}

Decluttering is so ahhhhhhh.

  1. I have been wanting to go paperless for some time and this is another method that can really help with this. Thanks for the great info. I know that a friend of mine Matt Galligan, wrote about other paperless tips here.

    • Thanks for stopping by and sharing your friend’s post, Brandon. Which event/transportation company do you work for? Do you have a lot of receipts you need to categorize? I think this will work for now, but always looking for new, more current ideas as technology develops.
