Crumpled, unreadable, and missing paper receipts
are no longer a nuisance for corporate credit cardholders who need them
to file expense
reports and get reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses. Instead, no
matter where Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) Commercial
Card customers are, with the new feature on Wells Fargo CEO Mobile®,
they can immediately upload paper receipts for processing and
reimbursement by simply snapping their photos.
One company that already has made the switch from paper expense receipts
to mobile images is Universal Avionics, an international equipment
manufacturer and marketer in Tucson, Arizona. This company uses the
Wells Fargo CEO Mobile and Commercial
Card Expense Reporting (CCER) services to manage its corporate
purchasing card program and says it will greatly benefit from the added
“Throughout our organization, it’s difficult for us to manage all of our
receipts, and we often miss some,” said Curtis Thelen, program
administrator and Wells Fargo cardholder at Universal Avionics. “This
new solution will help us increase our percentage of receipts collected.
I also see this becoming the preferred method over using a scanner and
e-mailing the image. I can’t think of a better way of doing it.”
After taking a photo of a receipt with an iPhone, iPad or Android
smartphone or tablet, Wells Fargo corporate cardholders sign in to the CEO
Mobile app, click the Wells Fargo Commercial
Card Expense Reporting (CCER) service, and tap “Upload Receipt.”
It’s that easy. CCER transmits the electronic receipt for reconciliation.
“Our customers have seen their share of expense receipts go missing or
through the washing machine. Now we’ve made the process easy,” said
Secil Watson, head of Wells Fargo Wholesale Internet Solutions. “This
new mobile solution significantly streamlines the process of expense
CCER also provides company card administrators with tools to set
spending limits, e-mail notifications to cardholders, generate reports,
and send alerts about purchasing trends or unusual and unauthorized
“Mobile adoption among our corporate customers is increasing at a fast
pace, as mobility gives them the ability to perform time-sensitive
transactions no matter where they are,” added Watson. “Customers want to
complete their financial to-do list no matter where they are and what
device they are on.”
