Expense reports that do suck

Verified Reviewer  9th of March

Senior Account Executive (Marketing and Advertising company, 51-200 employees)
Buggy app, not user friendly, a different problem every time I submit a report. Support is very slow to respond and when they do, it's almost like they are delaying actually fixing anything - they just respond for the sake of responding.

Pros: None - I'd rather submit reports using excel and paper receipts.

Cons: It's incredibly buggy. Literally a new problem every time I use it. Sometimes they auto-import receipts, sometimes they don't. I have 2 credit cards setup to import expenses and when I deleted an entire column of personal expenses, they actually uploaded into my expense report, which nullified the work I had done handpicking business from personal expenses. Support is a disaster. I've reached out to them 3 times and they respond 6 hours later saying "so sorry we are here to help" and I respond and nothing. I passionately hate this product.

I've only used this for a couple months, and haven't had any team members start using it yet, but so far, so good. Some of the automated workflows will be useful once I deploy this to a team. And I like the dashboard for the expense breakdown by category at a glance. The automatic receipt creation and the integration with external accounts (eg AMEX) is especially helpful.

Pros: Dashboard, automated workflows, automatic receipt creation, integration with external accounts, receipt uploads, and easy of use / UI

Cons: Report creation functionality is extremely limited, and is definitely a big concern for me.

App is amazing!

We have been using Expensify at our firm for over 5 years. We highly recommend it to all our clients, especially for the mobile app! You can take a picture of your receipt right on your phone from the app, and using smart scan, it will even put all the information in right from the receipt (name, amount etc). Then you can code everything and make a report and submit For clients who have trouble with receipts, this couldn't get any easier. We also like that you can have multiple levels or approvals, download credit card transactions right into the program, reimburse employees , and it all syncs to QBO. Can't recommend it enough, it makes expense reporting a breeze.

Pros: Mobile App, approval levels, customer service, price, easy of use

Cons: Can take a little but to get it set up, but once it is, you are off and running!

Expensify is great for keeping track of receipts and miles. The best part is it does most of the work for you and then create awesome reports that don't suck.
