Effective and efficient accounting is critical to the success of any company and Portuguese startup PaperVault’s new mobile application is here to help streamline the process.


PaperVault is a digital and smart receipt mobile platform that allows companies to centralize, organize, and digitalize all receipts. In addition to facilitating an easier accounting experience, PaperVault helps to cut costs by eliminating paper from the accounting process. According to CEO Orlando Ribas Fernandes, “We wanted to create a product that helped make every aspect of accounting easier, from management costs and data analysis to product returns and warranties management, all while eliminating the need for paper and helping the environment.”

PaperVault also provides users with a solution for improving customer loyalty, direct marketing, and customer behavior analysis - making it possible for companies to analyze consumer trends, buyer profiles, market segmentation, and customer satisfaction and engagement.

PaperVault employs Azure Machine Learning as well as Visual Studio and SQL Server, to improve the quality and usability of their product. PaperVault uses Azure to manage files and metadata in order to store, organize, and track all digital receipts. Machine Learning is used to provide real-time datamining reports and Visual Studio for analytics.
