Vicky Skipp takes over from Sophie Hossack as Leader of Receipt Bank's Australian Team

After five years growing Receipt Bank's presence in the APAC region, Sophie Hossack is returning to the UK for the role of Director of Strategic Partnerships. Sophie has been invaluable in establishing our bond with ICB, and she will continue to foster that bond in the UK. Her shoes—and they are big shoes to fill—won't be left vacant, however.

Vicky Skipp is stepping in with a wealth of experience in sales and sales leadership for big names, such as McAfee, Adobe and LinkedIn. She plans on bringing that experience, along with a healthy dose of enthusiasm, to her new role at Receipt Bank.

“The passion associated with transformation and innovation at Receipt Bank is incredible,” says Vicky. “This drives our deep desire to deliver excellence in our effortless bookkeeping mission.

“Helping bookkeepers and their clients move to the cloud has been transformative and yet, we're only just scratching the surface of what's possible,” she continues. “The goal has always been—and will continue to be—developing tools that help accountants and bookkeepers work more efficiently and provide more value for clients. True to the company's spirit, this involves investing in innovation to stay ahead.”

And invest in innovation we have!

After receiving $50 million in Series B funding this June, we have been thinking long and hard on how to spend it. Ultimately 20 million of those dollars are being spent on product development, which means a better Receipt Bank for you.

We are rolling out a number of great new features over the next few months, which all received a very warm reception at Xerocon, and in their beta testing phase. Thus, without much further ado, here are some of our new features:

  • Sales invoice extraction, which comes after high demand from our partners
  • Fetch, which syncs with your clients suppliers and fetches invoices automatically
  • Sweep, which identifies receipts and invoices in your email inbox and automatically posts them to Receipt Bank.

There are many more on the way and we cannot wait to share them all with you.

In the meantime, we hope those of you who were able to make it to ATSA enjoyed Sophie's talk. Alongside ICB's Rick Van Dyk, she discussed the process of digitizing your invoices and the benefits it can bring to your bookkeeping.

Lastly, how could we forget the wonderful Tea Party Webinar we held exclusively for ICB members last week! We've had so much incredible feedback and lots of people on the #RaiseACup2017 hashtag, so watch this space for Global Bookkeeping Week 2018…
