Claiming Business Expenses or Performing Accounting Operations in a Cloud Service

Scanned results of receipts are uploaded to a business expense management cloud service or an accounting cloud service. Simply scanning receipts automatically enters the amount of business expenses in the service or automatically sorts the scanned results, which reduces time that is required for burdensome management.

This section explains how to establish a link with a cloud service by using ScanSnap Cloud.

Before using ScanSnap Cloud, you need to agree with the Terms of service for ScanSnap Cloud and configure the settings. For details, refer to Saving a Scanned Image in a Cloud Service by Using ScanSnap Cloud.
