Receipt management comes to mobile banking
TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 12, 2016) - Managing receipts just got a lot easier. Sensibill has launched eReceipts, a mobile receipt management solution, through a partnership with The Bank of Nova Scotia ("Scotiabank"). The new feature allows Canadian customers to store, organize, and retrieve important paper and electronic receipts as an extension of the services offered through their mobile banking application (app) and Wallet. Scotiabank is the first Tier 1 Canadian bank to rollout the innovative new solution. The service is available to both Android and iOS users in Canada by simply updating their apps.
"We believe that eReceipts is the next killer app for mobile banking. Receipts are cumbersome to deal with, but they are important to save for taxes, expense tracking, returns, warranty claims and more. We're excited to partner with Scotiabank to bring this easy-to-use, helpful service to Canadians," says Corey Gross, CEO & co-founder of Sensibill.
To deliver a stable and scalable solution, Sensibill leverages IBM Cloud for a secure infrastructure to meet the requirements of partner banks. "Scotiabank came to the table early, and really helped us validate our 'bank tough' service. The solution is incredibly lightweight to plug in, but packs a big punch for Scotiabank's customers," says Gross.
eReceipts allows customers to capture any receipt and access their purchase records directly from their banking app. Though there are other solutions in market that offer receipt capture, Sensibill is the first to enable item-level contextualization. Machine-learning extracts and structures information about each item, such as product names and SKUs. This adds clarity to otherwise vague transactions and reduces friction associated with searching for a specific purchase.
Sensibill's service is also the first to offer consumers automatic matching of receipts to card transaction histories. This solution is in line with the "mobile first" trend in banking, meant to support customers' need for convenience and accessibility, as well as providing a seamless end-to-end payment experience.
"Value-added services like eReceipts directly align with our commitment to provide mobile banking solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers," says Brian McCabe, Vice President of Day to Day Banking at Scotiabank. "We have worked to enhance Scotiabank's My Mobile Wallet, which runs on Android devices, and our mobile banking app on iOS devices, as it supports our customers' entire shopping experience."
