What is Emburse Cards?

Emburse Cards allows you to create plastic and virtual credit cards with built-in spending rules. Restrict spending based on budget, date, time, location, etc. You can granularly track individual spending without having to track everyone down. The cloud-based platform allows users, both employees and their employers, to see exactly how much money has been spent by recording all transactions within the app in a timely and accurate manner.

Key benefits of using Emburse Cards

• Offers a secure way to share and enforce budgets across various employees and enables individual accountability on spending.

• The Emburse Cards platform can recognize when a transaction is out of policy and give the employee the opportunity to repay the amount from personal funds.

• Emburse Cards automatically scans users’ Google inbox to look for the corresponding receipt for a transaction.

• Allows the user to set restrictions such as date, time, merchant, place and budgets to control spending.

• Users can automatically categorize recurring transactions and even detect the type of merchant.

Pros
I love how easy the user interface is. It does what you want, when you want, and then more.

GQ

Gerald Q.

The ability to leverage both an easy to administer Dashboard along with a rich set of APIs fit our use case perfectly.

AL

Aaron L.

We love the ease of the Emburse. It is great to use with contracted employees.

SV

Sara V.

Cons
Need to capture more information from merchants where cards are used. Fraudulent transactions are hard to chase down due to the limited information provided by the merchants.

I know this is a tough one. Like "Warning, warning, your card is going to be shut down unless you do.

We found this out when a transaction declined and then we were unable to log in, and reached out to a rep. No communication, even an automated email, informed us.

Everyone has a card!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Pretty good, some issues in the part with reissuing cards (always a pain to ship a couple of dozen around the world again) but just happened once so far.

Pros

We have implemented Emburse for all our remote team (aka everyone) that works with us. Each person gets a card shipped with budgets to spend on perks ($500 in Convert's case) and that makes everything run smooth. Then we run almost all budgets through the virtual cards making it easier to decentralize spending on anything. Decentralize is the way to go for us since we run on Holacracy and are all remote.

Cons

Feel it's still missing a direct connection with Xero that could be a big plus. A way to ship a card directly to anywhere in the world (now only US) would save us a logistical step.

Emburse dramatically simplified expenses. My team loves it!

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Emburse makes it incredibly easy to issue expense cards to new employees and ensure that everyone reports back on all the key things you need to close your books. It took an annoying process of internal nagging to get the books closed, to a streamlined automated text message each time someone purchased. It’s amazing.

Cons

There is nothing significant that I dislike about the product. One quirk is that you’re using pre-paid cards rather than true credit cards, so you have to keep re-upping your balance. But this is automated so it’s not a big deal.

Servers Down Constantly Lead to Failures in Purchases

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's a free program, you get what you pay for.

Pros

It's become a little more user friendly with drop down menus that you can search in and the ability to add additional attachments.

Cons

The website has been so slow as of late. It takes a few minutes for it to boot up and for me to be able to search for a transaction. It is so inconvenient. The servers have also had issues lately that cause recurring purchases to fail and cause serious issues with our vendors.

Vendor response

Hi Sarah, We are sorry to hear about your experience. We were recently performing some server cleanup which is why the transaction page was slow but have since finished. And as of last month, we added a new fix for managing any failed purchases! You shouldn't see anymore going forward. Just wanted to add that we aren't a free platform, but because of our relationship with Housecall Pro, we decided to waive the monthly fee a long time ago. If you have any questions or if there's anything we can do for you to make Emburse a better fit for you, please reach out and we'll make it happen! Regards, Chris

Easy To Use

Reviewed 2 years ago

Our company has between 10-15 American express cards which are being pit on a spreadsheet for monthly allocation and review so we have eased out if using those cards so much as well as completely getting away from using Comdata.

Pros

The fact that you can have unlimited cards both virtual and plastic.

Cons

I was under the impression that it could be used as an ATM debit card and it cant be.
