    Great Video. Thanks for the detailed critnuitsons for the quickbooks import. I guess my main concern or issue with this service, is that business owners will be scanning all receipts, not just cash receipts so how does the import differentiate which credit account to use. Also the time involved with still going into each transaction, and then coding it to the correct accounts, as well as follow up clean up of the other name lists, seems to time consuming for most depending on the quantity.
