Emburse Cards Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Emburse Cards's features:

David Parker

One of the best credit card solutions on the market

2019-09-30

Pros

We’ve done everything from trying corporate cards to using expense software solutions, but Emburse combines the best of both worlds.

Cons

Still is a young product and would love to see some more robust features that some of the bigger expense solutions have (ie. better receipt emailing options, native QBO support without using plugin, etc), but overall a solid product.

Emburse Review

2019-09-19

From development support during integration to operational support once you are live, the team at Emburse has always been fast to respond and incredibly informative and helpful.

Pros

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

Cons

We are eagerly awaiting consumer spending support through Emburse.

Emburse dramatically simplified expenses. My team loves it!

2019-08-14

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.

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.

Unexpectedly disabled account

2019-12-10

They didn't ask for any company information when setting up our account. This was different from other competitors we tested at the same time/after who collected company documents, bank statements and did a full credit check to make sure they were comfortable working together.

Pros

When they closed our account unexpectedly, they did refund our payment quickly.

Cons

We were only able to spend a few dollars before our account was unexpectedly closed.

Great customer support and gets the job done

2019-06-11

Since issuing department specific Emburse cards, accounting has been way easier and I don't have to deal with purchase orders everyday.

Pros

Intuitive UI. Never had an issue with my cards.

Cons

When we started with Emburse they were debit only and I didn't like having to leave a bunch of cash in their accounts. Now that they support credit cards, that's gone away.

Best decision to implement Emburse

2019-08-13

Best decision ever to implement Emburse into our accounting procedures.

Pros

It’s a 5/5 on all accounts.

Cons

If I had one “complaint” it would be that I didn’t discover this sooner.

Love the debit feature

2019-08-13

The support has been responsive -- although we have not needed much support because everything works well and is easy to understand.

Pros

Because of the replenishment feature, we can always keep a set amount of available funds for our non-employee marketing reps.

Cons

I really do not have any cons to share. Our Account Manager and Field Director are both very happy with Emburse.

Solid Product Coming from an Everyday User at a Small Food Tech Startup

2019-08-13

Positive - it does lack a lot that a traditional business card would, but I guess it serves a different purpose? Or maybe you're getting there

Pros

Categories feature is really helpful

Cons

You don't get any rewards or currency for using this vs other business cards Similarly, there's no purchase protection as there would be with business cards

Emburse isn't perfect (yet), but their Customer Support is!

2019-08-23

I have really enjoyed working with the team to create the most optimal system using Emburse and I'm excited to continue to grow with them! With their hardworking, dedicated and smart team, I think they'll get very close to just what we need!

Pros

Its probably the best one out there for accounting purposes.

Cons

I think the software requires a fair amount of customization in order to the most out of it. Some of their features still need work, but Emburse is still being built out and they are always open to suggestions/feedback which goes a long way.

2019-03-15

Pros

We also really love the ability to have an electronic card vs. a physical card.

Great Expense Management Tool

2019-08-16

This does exactly what we need it to do for a very reasonable cost. Far easier to get setup and running than their competitors.

Pros

API is excellent and easy to get up and running with.

Cons

Transparency about what fees we would be charged and how the service would be changed was pretty low at certain points. More advance notice would be great.

Emburse Review

2019-08-19

Pros

Ability to integrate API's.

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. We have had a couple fraudulent transactions that we could not pursue legally due to the lack of merchant info provided.
