There are good desktop software options for Mac and Windows that can be used with your current scanner, and there are small mobile scanners that easily pack away for time away from the office. You start up the software and run receipts through the scanner that's powered by a USB connection to your computer. Data is pulled from the receipt into the software while a copy of the receipt is saved, and most of the time, you don't have to enter or correct any of the information.
