How to manage expenses & reports with Envoice?

Dealing with expense documents can be time-consuming – all receipts and invoices have to be gathered from employees, sorted and inserted into accounting software by the time of reporting.

Today’s accounting softwares mostly do not offer automated data entry, therefore it is necessary to seek for the compatible support service that does the magic with expense documents efficiently.


Envoice’s expense management software enables to extract data from all receipts and invoices. Expense documents usually come in PDF or JPG format, which can be sent by email, photographed with smartphone or uploaded into Envoice web application. Once the documents are loaded, the extracting process begins according to your selected plan – Envoice’s Lite plan extracts the data automatically and Standard plan comes with a double-check by a human eye for ultimate preciseness.


Data extraction is however only one part of expense management software and once the expense documents are all in a digital format, it is necessary to review and approve them, create expense reports, reimburse the payments and archive the documents in an easily accessible format. Cost reviews and approvals should be solved with an effortless digital approval round, during which the company’s management board and accountants together decide whether the costs are correct and can be reimbursed to employees.

Envoice offers a powerful expense management software, which covers the whole cost management process.
