User Testimonials

Likelihood to Recommend
Xero
It is well suited for clients who are on the road and they can send their receipts in for purchases from their phones. This has enabled us to get receipts prior to being lost or damaged so it makes the matching process in QBO much easier for us. Clients like to scan multiple pages at one time and vendors invoices/bills. This is less suitable as they need to do individual scans since Hubdoc cannot separate them out.

Kofax PaperPort is great for any office that has paper documents - seriously! We have set up multiple businesses to use Kofax PaperPort to cut down their storage of paper receipts, invoices, documents, etc by nearly 90%! Their office is much better organized and they have the ability to edit PDF Documents for a lot cheaper than buying Adobe Acrobat.

Pros
Xero
  • Extracts data from documents both from a feed and a scan really quick.
  • Availability of automated feeds directly from the supplier.
  • Integration with accounting software e.g. Xero (now owned by them) and QBO.
  • Ability to auto-archive to many different cloud storage locations such as Google Drive and ShareFile.

  • With Kofax PaperPort, documents can be merged, pages can be extracted from multiple documents and combined to make a new PDF document. It is an important feature as one needs to do it very often and more ubiquitous pdf readers like Adobe Acrobat Reader DC lacks functionalities like these.
  • Kofax PaperPort scans the documents and using it's OCR, converts these scans to searchable PDF documents so that these documents can be searched based on the text content in them.
  • Functionality to convert other formats to PDF and PDF to other formats. This is important as many times , we need to upload certain documents only in a specific format and conversion is required to and from PDF format.

Cons
Xero
  • Although it is great that they can automatically get bank statements and transactions once linked, these links have been very unreliable historically.
  • Figuring out how to set up the automatic feed is cumbersome. You can land up being inundated with useless transaction data.
  • you have to upload each document separately. The program cannot differentiate/split PDFs.

  • It should have a back button, so if you go from one folder to the next, it would be simple to get back to the first folder.
  • When you combine two PDFs, it should retain the title of the one that's on top.
  • The send to bar should be easier to change.

PaperPort has a few quirks, but it is the only program of its kind that actually does what it claims to do. The power of it is so much more than they claim especially when it comes to trying to achieve a truly paperless office. With PDF editing built-in, it also saves considerable investment in other PDF editing programs.

At the time we implemented Hubdoc (more than 2 years ago) it was quite cutting edge and did have strong advances from the competition plus its pricing was definitely more competitive (flat rate vs price per data extraction model). However, currently the competition has caught up and now many of Hubdoc's core features are being built into online accounting software natively.

We did not get far into evaluating other solutions we were looking at because Hubdoc came highly recommended from peers, coupled with Xero and Gusto. The cost for Thompson-Reuters is high. We quickly honed in on Hubdoc due to cost and recommendation and are very glad that we did.

I was ecstatic to see someone moving PaperPort away from Nuance (Those in my circle of friends refer to them as Nuisance). The lack of customer involvement by Nuance made finding answers to things that sometimes irritate a user to being downright frustrating. Maybe the purchase of Nuance by Microsoft will allow the company to focus more on the customer.

Return on Investment
Xero
  • I don't have actual hard figures but I know it will save a lot of time for us. We can save an incredible amount of time letting Hubdoc do the tedious renaming and filing.
  • By syncing with cloud storage like Google Drive or Dropbox, Hubdoc provides an extremely valuable service of information security by backing up our data.
  • Hubdoc allows us to let an intern or newer employee be more productive because all they have to do is make sure that the scans are good quality and then upload the files to Hubdoc (which has a very easy to use interface). Any files that need special attention can then be addressed by a more senior member of our staff.

  • Less amount of money is spent for filing purpose as less number of people and space are required for filing purpose now.
  • Information retrieval has become way faster as documents can be searched based on labels or on the basis of their content.
  • Lot of options to improve the quality of the scanned image.
