 Easy Way to Manage Expenses

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 ...

 Expense reports that do suck

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 ...

I WOULD NOT FUNCTION WITH OUT THIS APP!!!

15/08/2017

My life is easier, I don't have to hang on to receipts that lose their ink. And it automates everything. I love it!

Pros

My favorite function of this app is that I simply take a photo of my receipt and it inputs EVERYTHING. It inputs the name of the place the receipt is from, the amount of money, and the date on the receipt. It's so simple! It even transfers my receipts from British pounds to US dollars automatically for me when I'm traveling. Or Canadian, or any other country I'm in. It does the conversion for me. Everything is automated. My life is so much easier, and I don't have to carry any receipts around with me. The other favorite thing is that once I'm ready to send a report in, it can be for the month, or a specific trip, or what ever, it emails the entire report broken down into categories for me in a PDF file with the receipt photos attached in the PDF. BOOM!

Keeps expenses simple

08/08/2017

Pros

Above all else, Expensify was really easy to use. I had never expensed anything before, and Expensify made it really simple to submit receipts and get reimbursed. It was relatively intuitive and I liked the interface.

Cons

Honestly, I don't know that I have any cons. I felt that Expensify was really affordable (the free plan is good too), and got the job done efficiently. My expenses weren't particularly complicated, so perhaps there are some features Expensify is missing that I'm not aware of.

Expensify makes Expenses Easy!

23/07/2017

Pros

Expensify has an easy to understand interface, the ability to configure different policies, great export and integration features, and the ability to reimburse through the system or through your preferred vendor.

Cons

They are no longer supporting the integration between Freshbooks and Expensify. This means we have to manually export and import all our data.

Great tool to keep track of expenses from every employee.

18/07/2017

Ease of use. Value for the money--reduces paperwork and accounting costs. You can upload expenses the second you finish the transaction.

Pros

Easy to use and learn. It can be easily combined with other accounting software and makes tracking expenses very quick and simple. Several users can register their expenses in the same pool.

Cons

Assigning expenses to different and multiple projects is not straightforward, so it can be difficult to allocate expenses when you are dealing with multiple projects.

Using Expensify to track expenses from our field crews has never been easier.

27/06/2017

Pros

Customization for different types of charges are really important when tracking purchases . Being able to export all charges as well as pdfs is very helpful.

Cons

Better search and filter options would be nice to have when doing end of the month analysis for the overall company.

Limited features, terrible support but not many other options out there.

23/06/2017

Quickly deployable expense system.

Pros

Easy to get started and simple to use. Much better than Concur at interfacing with QB. If it wasn't for the more robust interface tool, I wouldn't be using it at all.

Cons

Near zero support. Only option is a online chat and it takes them hours to respond. You can't call anyone to get a simple question answered. Very frustrating. Very limited credit card issuer import. If your bank is not on the list you have to manually configure and it won't let you split a single import and parse out to cardholders after importing transactions. You have to send each user their own card transaction file and they must upload individually. Receipts and expense items disappear without explanation sometimes and you must reload them.

Quite helpful once you've used the app a few times

09/06/2017

It helps me be proactive about my expenses and staying up to speed on my report so that when it is time to submit to accounting, I am ready and not dreading the backlog of data entry.

Pros

Allows you to have multiple reports active and open concurrently, Lets you easily re-open closed reports for editing. compiles receipts into an exportable pdf for report submission, user friendly help search (step by step directions), Smart Scan helps expedite data entry.

Cons

Has a few hiccups from time to time: automatically closing reports, not always intuitive how to initiate certain actions, Smart Scan not always able to correctly read receipts.

Good app to help simplify expense processing

07/06/2017

Streamlines business expense processing

Pros

It's really easy to use, when it works. Charges on my business credit card are automatically picked up as business expenses. If I have an expense I can take a picture of the receipt and have it pull the relevant information for reporting the expense. Assembling the expenses into expense reports is easy to accomplish.

Cons

When using a picture of a receipt, the app frequently struggles with identifying the expense information. I can often attribute the difficulty to the receipt (about half of the time) but there are times that it has difficulty with clear, concise receipts.
