Bento has saved our organization countless hours of reconciling receipts and tracking employee spending. Our employees love it because they don't have to spend their money and wait for reimbursement and the card and smartphone app are easy to use. Any time we've had questions or issues they're resolved in minutes. The online chat function for support is GREAT!

Pros
Ease of use. Phenomenal customer support. Fair Pricing.

Cons
No support on the weekends.

The software/company was obviously pretty new considering you would contact the same two people every time you reached out to customer service. They were as helpful as they could have been with what they had to work with.

Pros
I liked the price and the ease of getting started with it. Making funding deposits into the system was easy and fast.

Cons
Perhaps it just didn't fit quite right for what we needed it for. We were using it to award monthly incentive bonuses to our technicians. The issue I kept having was that I would update the amount they currently had on their debit card to include the new months' amount but half the time it would make me put it down to $10.00 and save then go in again and enter the correct amount. And sometimes it wouldn't save it. A few times I had to go through all of my records and cross-reference them with the statements showing what the technicians had spent, and correct their balances. It was ridiculous. It would have been nice if the software kept a record of keypunches so you could go back in the history and see what didn't save.

I haven't had any problems. Everything has been easy to use. Tee days to transfer money are average and its easy to track my employees spending and low balances. Great concept.

We have had great success with Bento. It is a great value for our money. Expenses are very easy to track. All questions are answered sufficiently. The cards are very easy to use. I wish the money could be transferred more quickly but we can't expect all of our wants delivered. Thanks so much!

Pros
Ease of use and expenses easy to track.

Cons
Money not transferred for 2 days.

Bento For Business Review

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2017-02-21
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!

Pros
Time and money saving, great control of spending from anywhere, snap shot of job costs thanks to 'tag' feature.

Cons
Would like a quicker transfer time or loads from bank and a larger limit per day in transfers.
