    Dext Email Users

    1.  When you become a Dext customer, you will receive a personalised email address.
    2. You can email/forward documents to your Dext email address either in the body of the email, or as an attachment. Dext will identify the document, obtain it and submit it to the Dext inbox.
    3. You can submit invoices or receipts in any of the following formats: JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, PDF, .zip files with images, DOC, DOCX, ODT, and RTF.

    Once the document has been uploaded/received, Dext’s automated extraction engine will read and interpret key information, prefilling a large portion of the required data (e.g. document type and date, supplier, invoice number, total, currency, etc).

    An image of the document will also be attached, and subsequently stored for 10 years. This not only eliminates the need to file documents (or put them in the shoe box) but also ensures you are fully compliant in the event of an audit. Storage of these documents is fully secure and all online so you can access them at any time.
