Expense tracking done right. Built to take the stress off of accounting departments when it comes to reporting, employee reimbursements, and tax season.
Managing receipts, expenses, and reimbursements is tedious and time-consuming. Managers are spending hours maintaining spreadsheets, tracking their department's budget and spending. This is madness.
Picture meeting with a client or buying supplies for your next big project. What do you do with that receipt after? You should be able to add receipts on the go, via your mobile phone, or from the comfort of the office with your computer.
Managers and directors should be able to track expenses for their departments without spreadsheets. They should be able to generate customizable reports on a moment’s notice. All of this should bubble up to Quickbooks so that you have insight into all of your company’s spending.
It's essential that organizations be able to quickly produce all documents required to comply with a state or federal audit. You shouldn't have to worry about losing receipts, or receipts fading over time.
Working with Encryption was a collaborative experience. I was able to be highly involved in the project, which enabled us to change directions several times. I would highly recommend Encryption!
It takes a lot of planning to build an application as robust as Receipt Defender. Take a look at a few of the services used.
When you're building a fully featured web application, in addition to an iPhone and Android app, it's a lot of work. We wanted to be strategic in this endeavor, and ensure as much code reuse and sharing between platforms as possible.
We encouraged a beta release of this application. This allowed us to get real-world feedback from potential clients. That feedback saved us months of development time down the road.
From the feedback we received in the beta release, we knew that reporting was key to the success of the application. So, we added the ability for receipts to have tags, not just categories. This allowed another layer of reporting.
Due to the potential for so many organizations to rely on this application, we choose to use Docker and Kubernetes to make infrastructure extremely robust and deployments a breeze.
If there's an increase in usage, the application will automatically scale up or down accordingly, thereby saving the client money, time, and resources.
When the time comes to release a new version, updates are rolled out with zero downtime.
We have implemented health checking at every level. If any POD fails to respond, a new POD will automatically be deployed to replace the failed instance.
All application logs, instance logs, and error logs are consolidated for easy review and storage. If any users encounter a bug or problem, engineers will be immediately notified.
In today's modern world, security can't be an afterthought. Security has to be a focus from the start. We took extra care to ensure that our bases were covered, and most importantly, that our clients are protected.
Companies are trusting us to keep their information safe and secure. By utilizing redundant storage, we are able to ensure integrity and high availability. We can't lose any receipts.
We continuously monitor all our applications. We look for irregularities, like large increases in traffic or authentication attempts. This enables us to be proactive rather than reactive.
Our entire application stack is built from the ground up, automatically, on every deploy. This ensures no unauthorized changes to servers. We also utilize a network firewall, and an intrusion detection and prevention system.
We also conduct monthly security audits across the application code and infrastructure. As a result, we stay ahead of the curve on potential security concerns.
We're partners. We partnered to build Receipt Defender and are actively invested in its success as a product and company.
We spent weeks understanding the market and the problem we needed to solve. We analyzed competitors to ensure that we could add value to the market.
Minimum Viable Product (MVP)
We decided to go to market with an MVP to evaluate interest from prospective customers. By doing this, we were able to go to market much faster.
After the successful MVP, we analyzed the feedback from customers and decided which features made sense for this product.
We also developed marketing materials, consisting of everything from website content to designing brochures and business cards for the company.
Life is full of problems and challenges. Let us help you get through it.
