Document transfer using a web scanner

You can transfer documents to Finmatics using a web scanner. For this you need a network scanner and your computer must be on the same network. Click on the logo at the top left or on the tabs "To Do", "Workflow" or "Transfers" and then on "Scan". A driver is automatically installed if required. Select the client, process and period and click on "Scan". The invoices are now automatically processed by your scanner and transferred to Finmatics.

You can also send invoices to the system via email. If you send an email with an image attachment (pdf, tiff, jpg) to your Finmatics email address, the attachment will be taken for processing. Read also How can documents be sent to Finmatics via email?.

In the clients-screen, in the "Processes" tab, you need to create an email address for each respective process in advance to enable email transmission. For more information, please refer to  Which settings can I configure in the clients-screen under "Processes"?

Use the Finmatics app on your smartphone if you have only a few invoices (less than 5), if there is no scanner available or if you want the invoices to be forwarded immediately (restaurant, hotel).
