ABUKAI Launches Break-Through 2nd-Generation ABUKAI Expenses Service

New Simple, Fast and Seamless Features for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – October 02, 2012 – ABUKAI Inc., the innovative leader in actionable business productivity, today announced its next-generation ABUKAI Expenses 2.0, a unique mobile receipt scanning service. Customers of ABUKAI will enjoy a more enhanced experience with new features such as:

• Electronic images of receipts that look just like paper copies from a copier, using ABUKAI's patent-pending real-time receipt look*
• Real-time preview how the receipts will appear*
• Black/white receipt copies enable faster uploads, smaller reports (also for import into other systems with memory limitations), and easy printing with little ink*

In addition, this next-generation of ABUKAI’s unique technology automatically changes receipt sizes in reports based on the actual receipt (full page vs. smaller receipts).

"Our customers know ABUKAI Expenses to be fast, simple and seamless. Now they can experience even greater speed and enhanced capabilities with 2.0,” says Philipp Schloter, CEO of ABUKAI. He added, “At ABUKAI we are focused on providing our customers with every advantage to be the most productive and efficient that they can be in today’s competitive business landscape.”

In addition, ABUKAI has updated iPhone, Android and BlackBerry features to include:

• New revised user interface with cool graphics, and friendly look & feel
• Receipt view to double check and review receipts
• Ability to select frequent terms from a list of terms such as project codes, clients, or attendees for a meal
• Ability to turn on multi-activity reporting, out of pocket and monthly reporting features through the User Portal or through the Corporate Portal in case of standard corporate accounts
• Ability to post expenses directly to corporate systems, link ABUKAI to accounting and expense systems, such as Insperity ExpensAble, Intuit QuickBooks, Xero Accounting, and many others, directly through the User Portal
• In-app form to request additional customization from ABUKAI
• In-app video tutorials to get started
• Push notifications on completion of expense report processing**
• Support for App URL for 3rd party applications to launch ABUKAI**

ABUKAI is now also offering a new “freemium”-pricing model. ABUKAI’s new free account includes 12 expense report submissions/year for every user (counted as sets of 10 receipts). In addition, ABUKAI now offers an unlimited, single-user account for $99/year. For departments or companies, ABUKAI offers the standard corporate account at $49 set-up and $99/user/year, which includes access to ABUKAI’s Corporate Account Portal (allows a department or company to manage the multi-user account). If additional customizations are required, ABUKAI can custom tailor corporate accounts based on the company’s requirements. See http://abukai.com/buy for details.

With ABUKAI Expenses, capturing and recording expenses is radically simplified into an easy two-step process:

1) Using a smartphone, take pictures of the receipts while on the road or in the office.
2) When finished capturing all the receipts, simply push “Submit” in the application and ABUKAI will turn the receipts "auto-magically" into a finished expense report.

Unlike other expense report offerings, ABUKAI Expenses users do not ‘key’ information into mobile devices or computers. ABUKAI automatically creates the expense reports, with cost categorization, date, vendor and other required information already filled in. Even currency conversion is automated. Once a report is created, it is sent via email to a preferred email address along with a PDF document with copies of the receipt images for the expenses in that report. For corporate account customers, ABUKAI offers several options to input expense data directly into existing expense management or accounting systems accommodating many of the data formats most commonly used for that purpose.
