Cloud based storage

Free for JBS Clients
(Conditions apply)

JBS has aligned with a document scanning company that provides lifetime access to all scanned documents e.g. chattel mortgage and financing documentation.

Clients can get their documents scanned into the cloud in one of four ways:

  1. Post: prepaid postage envelope direct to our supplier, who will scan and return these documents direct to the client.
  2. Phone application: ideal for taking photos of parking receipts etc. and they go straight into the cloud storage
  3. Email: each client has their own email address which enables them to forward invoices, statements etc. direct to the cloud, which stores a copy of the email thread and the attachments
  4. Click and Drag: Click and drag documents to the folder on your computer


All scanned documents are scanned by OCR (Optical Character Recognition). This is a technology that extracts the text from an image or a scanned document so that it can be edited, formatted, searched, indexed. They are stored securely and provide you with access to all documents at the touch of a button. This also means that it can be easily imported into your accounting software e.g. Xero, MYOB Live.
