Want to make it easier for your team to upload receipts for corporate card transactions in a matter of minutes?
The simplest way to upload a receipt to Cape is to install the Cape Progressive Web App (PWA) - which only takes 2 minutes - take a photo of the receipt, click upload, and the rest is history. (See an in-depth how-to below)
If you prefer the desktop version, you can follow a similar process by logging into Cape on your desktop or laptop, navigating to ‘Transactions’ and clicking on ‘Add Receipt’ next to a transaction. Disclaimer: For our MVP release of this feature, you can only upload receipts to a transaction once they move from 'Pending' to 'Approved' status.
Getting started with our smartphone app only takes a few minutes. See a step-by-step guide below for installing the Cape PWA and uploading receipts from your phone.
Native apps are developed specifically for the environment they operate - such as iOS or Android. This limits their accessibility to other users, increases the cost of development, and slows down the speed at which we can roll out new smartphone features.
While we see it as a priority to have a native app in the future, for now the speed at which we can release features to the most amount of customers is a priority. PWAs can operate in most modern web browsers and on almost all phones.
They’re a better solution for testing new features and getting them in the hands of our customers at speed.
The cool thing about PWAs is they’re almost indistinguishable from a user’s perspective when installed on a smartphone. You can even have a mini app-looking shortcut on your phone - just like any other apps you use.
