Import Electronic Bank Statements
CosmoLex lets you import electronic bank/credit card statements (QBO format) for automated data entry. This feature is often useful to import monthly credit card transactions, as credit card charges are normally only entered after the statement becomes available. Built-in adaptive mapping rules can correct payee names and learn chart of account(s). You can even post matter-cost related transactions while importing, thus preventing a major source of missed expense entries.
