Ease of use

We are very happy with Smartscan and the value that brings to our Visma Employee app users. By just taking a picture of a receipt with the phone, Smartscan extracts the information needed reducing manual work, typos and number of clicks. It makes the experience of registering expenses a lot quicker and more user-friendly.
