Below are a list of five tools that allows for clients to quickly upload their documents directly to their bookkeeper or accountant.
Emailing documents into LedgerDocs makes sharing documents simple. Each company profile has a unique LedgerDocs email address which enables users to send and forward documents, directly into the application. Clients can attach their documents, write a message in the body of the email about the context of the document, and press send. The document will then show up in the LedgerDocs account with the attached notes. See our help desk to learn more about setting up your unique LedgerDocs email.
Whether you are using a Fujitsu ScanSnap, Doxie Go, or any other type of scanner, scanning documents into LedgerDocs is simple. Once the documents are scanned to your computer, users can log in to the application and quickly upload their important files. Want a more streamlined solution?
