HyperHack-2023 - Expense Tracker

Use Case Description

It is difficult to keep track of expenses that are spent across multiple payment methods e.g. credit card, cash, cashless payment methods e.g. PayNow in Singapore.

Current solutions available involve either manually enter expenses into a mobile app or a spreadsheet, or providing credit card statements to a 3rd party service for analysis which involves sensitive data being sent (credit card numbers, home addresses, phone numbers).

For my own personal expense tracking I designed a solution around extracting expense amounts from receipts, as a receipt will be present most of the time regardless of the payment method used.

Multiple UiPath products were used to integrate the input (an image of a receipt uploaded to my Dropbox) to produce the output (an Excel of all expenses and an Insights dashboard).

All automations run unattended on Automation Cloud Robots – Serverless, triggered by time triggers configured in Orchestrator.
