First Card receipts to Accounting


Want to automate the reminders of missing receipts?

Bezalas First Card integration is exceptionally good at reminding credit card users of what receipts need to be sent in. When your employee uses a First Card, they can file the receipt via Bezala right away. Bezala will then connect that receipt to the First Card transaction. This enables us to show a list of what receipts are missing.

Furthermore, Bezala will once a week automatically remind the user of the missing receipts via E-mail. The user can easily create new transactions from the Email we send.
