Bento For Business Review

Review Source: Capterra

We are a small construction company who specializes in maintenance of apartment buildings. Our crew used to buy materials everyday for jobs and come into office for re-reimbursement checks every couple days. Now they are not loosing time in the field and book keeper isn't having to stop in the middle of something to review receipts and cut a check. We have also seen saving in 'returns'.. with crew using cards refunds are issued to the cards, not given in cash. The tagging feature allows job cost tracking at a quick glimpse as well. Controlling spend limits etc is great and if needing adjusting (i.e. a larger purchase) can be done in seconds and the crew in the field then immediately can use card with the change. I would like to see a quicker fund load when doing a bank transfer and a larger transfer limit, but otherwise no complaints!Time and money saving, great control of spending from anywhere, snap shot of job costs thanks to 'tag' feature.

As an administrator, I am able to assist our local or traveling employees at the office on my desktop, or at home from the app. Easy to make any adjustment (in real-time, no delay) to any users daily/weekly/monthly allowance and spending category, or turn off the card if lost, stolen, or for misuse. Reports are easily downloaded for monthly reconciliation. Ease of use at office or home. Immediate access and ability to adjust a users funds, categories, or turn the card off. Report is simple to download for monthly reconciliation process. Users can see their limits quickly via app.

Bento cards have simplified our business spending immensely We can now offer company credit cards to our employees as one of their benefits All cards are immediately controllable and suspendible if lost or stolen or upon termination Spending limits allow for control of funds and restriction of categories The customer service can't be beat! They will work until it is solved and never leave you hanging! The only negatives would be to have an integration with QuickBooks, which is in the works, and international purchasing ability-also in the works!Functionality and ease of use Customer Service-Senam is outstanding!

Before we found Bento, the whole "petty cash" for over 50 employees who travel extensively was the bane of my existence! Now, with Bento, everything is so easy. I have full control of how much each employee has at their fingertips; where and when they can use it; and best feature of all, turn them off altogether if not needed for a period of time. The customer service has been extraordinary, truthfully. I have always gotten an actual person any time I've called, and 100% follow up with every question I've had. I recommend this company with absolute confidence.Everything

Our company has been transformed with these new Bento cards. We no longer have to worry about cash being unaccounted for. The best part is that our crew members can take pictures of their receipts and upload them into their Bento app on the spot! Every penny is accounted for and our year end accounting is so much easier! Thank you Bento for making our crew member's expenses electronic and easy to organize.We are able to link receipts to each transaction

Cards can be set up for different purposes, such as fuel/gas, individual employees, specific projects, office expenses, petty cash, and more.

Fuel cards set up through Bento can be used at any gas station, rather than being limited to ‘in-network’ gas stations, and additional spend categories can be enabled or disabled by the business owner as required, including car rentals, vehicle repairs, and meals.

Expenses are displayed visually on the dashboard in real time, organized by card/person and spend category, with adjustable date ranges and the ability to drill down into transaction details.

A full list of transactions can be viewed, and users can filter the transactions shown by date, type, card, tag, or category, or search for specific transactions.

Users can select spend categories for each card to control where transactions can be made, with options including amusement & entertainment, business services, gas stations, professional services, restaurants, repair services, travel & transportation, and more.

Two alert types are generated automatically, for declined transactions, and for low balances, with users able to select which alerts they wish to receive.
