How are my documents processed at Shoeboxed? What information is extracted from receipts and business cards?

When we receive your documents, we process them with state-of-the-art scanners that crop and enhance the scanned images automatically.

Receipts

The images of your receipts will be added to your account along with the information we extract from them, including store/vendor name, date, total amount, payment type, last 4 digits of the card used (if applicable) and category (if recognizable). Read more about categories here.

Business Cards

The images of your business cards will be added to your account along with the information we extract from them, including name, company, email address, and phone number(s). Notably, we do not extract job title, website URLs, street addresses, fax numbers or Twitter handles.

Our business card scanning process can pick up information from non-traditional business cards with vertical or diagonal type, image-text or extensive color. After we extract data from your cards via OCR software, Shoeboxed data entry operators will make sure that your information is being entered correctly into your account. This ensures that the information is as accurate as possible and that you won’t have to type in any of the information from your business cards yourself.
