Shoeboxed is a SaaS Superstar!

At Shoeboxed, we offer a scanning service for receipts and business cards and online software to organize the information that we digitize. Though the scanning portion of what we do is clearly a service, it’s important to remember that the software is itself a service as well. We don’t give you the software and set you free, never to hear from us again. Shoeboxed tries to form a relationship with our customers so that we can provide them with more customizable experiences, customer support and anything else they might need to get their receipts and business cards organized as easily as possible. We are part of the emerging trend of companies that provide software as a service.

Companies offering software as a service (SaaS) are relatively new concept, and offer many benefits over traditional out-of-the-box desktop software. I was fortunate enough to talk about this emerging trend with some other representatives of SaaS companies yesterday.

You can read more about it and listen to the segment on Cloud Ave.

    Dan-I use Card Scan with the reader and software. How would Shoebox help me? or improve what I have today?

    With Shoeboxed, you can take your pile of business cards and just mail them to us. We’ll scan and digitize the information from the cards for you. You will save time, since you don’t have to do the scanning yourself, and you won’t have to worry about your scanner malfunctioning or breaking. Also, since we use a combination of optical character recognition software and human-powered data entry, the information in your account will be close to 100% accurate – which you can’t get with other solutions.

    Nice to see such blatant nepotism (Philip and Dan are very likely related!)
