Filing expenses can be a huge pain, both for you and your employees. From meals, to gas, to supplies – keeping track of all the expenses that need to be reimbursed can quickly turn into a messy, time consuming hunt through a stack of crumpled receipts.
That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be rolling out a new way to automatically generate expense claims by simply snapping a picture of a receipt. This new feature will pull photos of receipts right into the Xero Expenses Android app. You can then automatically create an expense report without leaving the app.
“We’re thrilled to join the Google Photos partner program to deliver a beautiful experience to small businesses using the Xero Expenses app,” said Herman Man, VP of Product and Partnerships for Xero Americas.
“Using the Google Photos Library API means that our customers will get the choice to be automatically prompted to submit an expense when a photo of a receipt is taken, saving them time and streamlining their operations. By allowing customers to integrate with Google Photos, Xero Expenses makes the transition from personal to business use seamless, meeting the expectations of the modern business user.”
This innovation is being made possible through the Google Photos Library API. The Google Photos Library API provides the ability to filter users’ photos by different categories. The Google Photos partner program was announced during Google’s annual I/O conference.
