GGT Enterprises today released ReceiptWallet, an application allowing users to easily scan, manage, and archive receipts. The software is designed to operate similarly to the way Apple's iPhoto organizes photographs, simplifying the process of cataloging receipts. Users can scan in receipts -- even those spanning multiple pages -- directly from any TWAIN-compatible scanner with the push of a button, or can save Web-based receipts as PDF files from any Mac Web browser to import into ReceiptWallet. The application is available via download for $30, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later.
Values for merchant name, date, amount, payment type, category, and other fields are stored with receipts once they are entered. ReceiptWallet tracks entries for fields such as merchant and payment type, saving time by auto-completing entries when users type the first few letters. The software also offers custom, user-defined fields as well as room to enter notes for each receipt. Receipts are stored as PDFs, keeping storage requirements to a minimum and image quality high, according to GGT.
