INTELLIGENT AND SECURE ALL-IN-ONE SPEND MANAGEMENT SOLUTION

The all-in-one solution for corporate spending

Of course, Yokoy is precisely tailored to your individual internal processes.

CONTROL ONLY SPECIAL CASES, THE REST IS FULLY AUTOMATED THANKS TO AI

What makes Yokoy different from all the others

Self-learning
thanks to artificial intelligence

Based on all your receipts, vendor invoices and actions, the Yokoy tool learns and is able to automatically fill out expense forms and invoices including VAT for you.

Full automation,
not only digitalization

Yokoy finds outliers, rule violations and potential fraudulent cases and sends them for manual review. The rest – from submission to exporting to your accounting system – is fully automated.

Individualized,
company-specific process flows

Yokoy is the only expense management tool that allows you to map your individual company-specific process flow without a team of developers to code and maintain it for you.

Integrated into
your existing system landscape

Robust integrations are key to automating the data flow between different tools. Yokoy integrates with all major third-party tools and also provides the free “OpenAPI” platform to all partners and customers.

THE YOKOY INHOUSE RESEARCH LAB
Yokoy spend management step 1: Scan and send your receipts and invoice

Image processing

Expenses: The receipt is photographed and imported into Yokoy through the mobile app or on a computer.

Invoices: The invoice is scanned or uploaded to Yokoy via email.

Yokoy calculates the curvature and quality of the receipt image and enhances them with inhouse-built models in less than half a second.

Yokoy spend management step 2: Yokoy's AI software scans and reads out the scanned invoice/receipt

Text and number extraction

AI-based OCR then converts the enhanced image into machine-encoded text and builds words and numbers on that basis in less than one second.

Yokoy spend management step 3: Yokoy's AI software then analyses and detects the different information on the receipts/invoices, and compares it to company's policy

Information Extraction

Within a second, the Yokoy-AI-engine extracts information from the words and numbers and validates over 300 data points in one single receipt or invoice.In the case of invoices, the AI can also recognize the suppliers and match them with data from your company’s ERP.
The relevant data is then pre-filled in the expense report or invoice form in Yokoy.

Yokoy spend management step 4: Yokoy's AI software checks relevant policies, detects any fraud potential and validates the data to users.

The outcome

The information is subsequently used to check relevant policies, calculate fraud potential and validate the data.
Yokoy uses a self-learning model that enhances the accuracy with every additional expense receipt or invoice.
