    The ease of use and functionality is great and it makes it easy to track where your reports are at and when it has been approved.

    It's a nice incentive to encourage cost savings for the company and really nice for employees if you aren't too particular about your lodgings.

    I really enjoy expensify and everything it encapsulates. It's easy, and quite frankly, effective and I recommend to everyone.

    Our company have multiple entities in the US and in EU and expensify does not support this, the integration with xero is a mess i don't understand how does it work...My overall experience is bad.

    Criminal billing practices. I barely used the software and they are charging me for a year subscription and won't let me cancel.

    They violate their own privacy policy by sending out non-product related information to their customer base. This violates the agreement that they make you sign.

    User Friendly Interface

    Reviewed 5 months ago

    Great system to help track employee spending. The credit cards act as debit cards which is good if you’re a company that is trying to not live on credit.

    Pros

    Minimal learning curve if your team us any experience with expensing items in a software format. You can fix mistakes really easily and there aren’t a ton of buttons to wade through.

    Cons

    Sometimes new employees need to get reloaded to allow them to bill items to customers. That might be the accounting firm that we work with a fault though.

    Expensify Expense Tracking

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    I originally used this software because it was the most straight forward "fool proof" software that allowed me to manage and track several employees travel expenses and business mileage and keeping it as simple as possible for the employees. By implementing this software into our expense tracking, our employee's no longer have to worry about paperwork and keeping track of physical receipts so long as they take a picture of it in Expensify.

    Pros

    The feature that won me over is the softwares ability to extract the necessary relevant information from a picture of the receipt and its reliability to accurately create an expense entry automatically. The other feature that really stands out is the dedicated email address you have to send receipts to the app. This feature is great because of rules i have established in outlook so that any "receipts" from certain companies automatically gets forwarded to my Expensify account.

    Cons

    Occasionally, when I was trying to submit a few large reports the app would freeze up on me. Otherwise I cannot think of any negative experiences I have had with Expensify.

    Great Software for Managing Receipts

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Expensify is great for the basic management and processing of receipts on a daily or monthly basis.

    Pros

    I love that I am able to manage all receipts and put them in the correct accounts. This helps when entering receipts for a bank reconcile. I also love the ease of attaching receipts by many different methods. My favorite is the drag and drop method.

    Cons

    The software can be a bit difficult to navigate when the receipts are older. You can't go back and edit past mistakes easily.

    Affordable and Convenient , yet I plan to leave expensify

    Reviewed a year ago

    it is worth trying. but unlike even a year ago the competition is finally offering similar features for similar pricing.

    Pros

    due to popularity it is easily assesable and offered many ways to upload an expense. I like how unlike most app/software companies gets it as they make if affordable and capture the biggest marketshare.any companies think their software is be get tham it is and is cost prohibitive or have user minimums which usually are not applicable for small business. I love how they are one of the few to offer personal credit card integration feeds. Believe it or not most do not and actually expect us to upload statements

    Cons

    buggy at times, doesn't transition from mobile to desktop or we based version. mobile app.has far less ability. mostly if fails at the main purpose, saving me time. every months nearly every expense is duplicated, failing to match itself to the credit transactionnand this takes forever to fix. It only sycs properly to the credit transaction if the receipt photo is taken from then app. if you try to upload screenshots? email you invoiced and use the ios "Sent too function" it duplicates the transaction..tech support actually told me to wait for the bank before uploading the receipt. This eliminated the entire point of the product.

    Very easy to use and provides an interesting experience

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    We choose paid software so that all our financial activities are encrypted and not just anyone can open them. Apart from this interesting expensify software, our company data is stored safely and can only be used by professionals in our company.

    Pros

    During using this software, I learned more and more about how easy it is to manage company finances. Just by taking a photo, all data will be processed automatically. At first, I was very skeptical about buying it, but after I tried being recommended by my friend, I finally decided to buy it. Since then my thinking has changed 180 degrees.

    Cons

    The form of reports varies from country to country. Likewise, reporting standards in Indonesia are not the same as those often used in the US. I see the results of the reports made by Expensify are less professional. But no problem, this can be done manually by our team. Besides, it's free.
