Pros

Overall it has been a great addition to keeping us accountable and organized. The software is easy to use and we love that you can add delegates to your account so they can assist with reports.
I like that is is functional and easy to integrate with other systems. I liked getting reimbursed and I like how you can see your tickets and what has been submitted.
They also offer an app which I haven't tried yet but have heard all good things about it. The ease of training employees is also a nice benefit as it is a pretty user friendly system.

Pros

Love the ease of use and intuitive nature of the software. Their Help and customer support functions are simply the best.
As a user, expensing is super easy with Expensify, added on the phone app you can upload receipts and send for approval all from the comfort of wherever you are at the moment.
I love the ease of manually creating receipts and adding them to Monthly reports. The organization options are great for when it's time to file taxes.

Cons

I have been unable to upload the expenses to QB for a month now and Concur is unable to figure out why. VERY frustrating to be paying for a product that is not even useful.
Ve encountered numerous problems when using this software, but I am not sure if it is a Concur problem or if it is based on filters my company might have imposed.
Itemizing expenses is even worse. I have used this at two different companies and at both organizations I dread expense reports in large part due to how cumbersome Concur is.

Cons

The upside is that you can edit data if necessary, so it's really only a problem in rare instances. Other than that, I really don't have any criticism for Expensify.
I had a technical error, maybe it was my mistake, because it didnt happen to any of my other collegues where the expense trip report closed automatically.
To be honest I have yet to find anything wrong with Expensify or any issues. Time will tell if the notifications can become bothersome or an annoying issue but we shall see.

SAP Concur

Hyped up product with a great sales team and below average performance

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I like that it's cloud-based and includes Expensify.

Cons

1) Extremely poor customer service. It's not their fault, but the customer service teams are outsourced and unqualified to do much more than read from a script. 2) The software lacks an intuitive interface. Requires a lot of manual effort, from receipt matching (which is supposed to be automatic but fails more often than not to match to the proper transaction), to viewing the receipt in a little tiny window. The transaction type, which the system should learn, fails to port properly about 50% of the time, which means I have to manually change it. All in all, requires A LOT of manual effort for a system that was promised to increase efficiency and make our lives easier.

Not great :(

Pros

Almost nothing, except the eventual reimbursements in my checking account.

Cons

The UI is a buggy, intuitive, 90s relic. Please copy expensify :)

Super Useful for Employees That Have a Corporate Card and Complex Travel Policy

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

- Corporate card is linked directly to account, and the automatic categorization of expenses is effective - Ability to see what airline tickets and hotels adhere to my company's travel policy at time of booking - Ability to itemize dinner receipts to specify exactly who took part in a meal

Cons

- Very cumbersome software with a steep learning curve - The UI is rather clunky, not as sleek as Expensify

SAP Concur

Cheap and featureful but man, it's a real pain to use

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

SAP Concur is a bit cheaper than other options on the market, e.g. Expensify. It's got everything that both administrators, finance people, and regular employees need.

Cons

But man, is it PAINFUL to use. The UI is so bad: it doesn't allow you to open links in new tabs. Each click refreshes the ENTIRE page and takes several seconds. It's very ugly. It's unintuitive to use. If I was making the purchase decision, I'd just go with a more expensive product and save everyone ~1 hour per week.

Cons

I never had any issues with concur my company now uses expensify which I enjoy but it does not give complete access to book travel along with expenses

Standard expense tracking - does the job

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It has a relatively user-friendly mobile interface. The software works well most of the time and does the job of recording and organizing expenses.

Cons

Not nearly as intuitive, clean, or efficient as Expensify. Having more features, like the ability to scan receipts or auto-populate fields based on previous entries would help immensely.

Concur Review

Reviewed 8 months ago

My experience was good. I found the app easy to understand, easy to attach receipts, and I like the notifications.

Pros

It was easy to load up receipts and enter all the information for purchases. I liked the notifications. It was convenient.

Cons

There really wasn't anything that I didn't like, but I wasn't all that involved with it. The company I work for used it for a time, then they switched to Expensify.

Flexible but with an outdated UI

Reviewed 2 years ago

Concur helps us track and monitor expenses.

Pros

Concur is really flexible and has a lot of features! You can enter multi stop trips for mileage, pick from numerous categories, create reports, etc.

Cons

In previous positions, I used Expensify which has a nice and colorful UI. Concur does not have the same level of appeal in terms of the look and feel, but it is still useable.

Expensify is way better

Reviewed a year ago

It was OK but I think Expensify is a much more convenient and easy to use tool. Concur gets the job done but isn't nearly as easy for getting expenses done as others I've used.

Pros

Honestly not much. It gets the job done but it's clunky and not that user friendly.

Cons

There were a lot of steps to get done what I needed on the expense. I would prefer it to be simplified and easier to replicate instead of having to go through identical tedious steps over and over again.
