 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, ...

 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 ...

Expensify is a game changer

28/02/2017

I love this product. As the person who handles expenses, as well as wearing many other hats, it's a game changer. Even those who are non-technical can learn it and use it easily, which saves me time and money. I love the way it easily integrates into Quickbooks, and especially that I have the option to load as already reimbursed so I do not have to duplicate any work. 5 stars for sure.

Great for tracking expenses!

24/02/2017

Expensify can be used for both personal and business cases. In case of personal use, it helps a ton to track your expenses while you're on a trip, so you don't go over your budget. In business cases, it helps to get your refunds easily from your company! Pro tip: you can always add a negative amount to indicate a refund or even to track your budget!

Expensify Synch Manager

23/02/2017

Expensify moved to a new Synch Manager with Quickbooks that has lots of bugs - been trying to make it work for the last 30 days with poor results. The product is great for reporting - it's getting the information to Quickbooks that is the real issue. Hope they can get the glitches fixed soon.

Make your credit card recon easy!

Forget to keep up with receipts - Use the app to 'scan' it with your phone and then let expensify handle the rest!

Pros

Scanning receipts and customer reports along with QUICKBOOKs import

Cons

Nothing - Works very well!

Great Expense Report Software for Small Enterprise

01/02/2017

I used this software extensively in a previous position, both as administrator and user. For a small organization, this is an excellent expense reporting software product which will easily allow you to go 100% paperless. All receipts are uploaded digitally and you can take photos of receipts on your phone and upload them onto the app (which is a great app). Once submitted, the routing is very nice and you can track the progress and make modifications if it is kicked back to you. The implementation was very smooth and we were able to incorporate everything we needed, including our chart of accounts, into this product. All of our employees loved it and it is especially useful for organizations who either have a lot of people traveling or who have employees in geographically dispersed locations. We had employees living in very remote parts of the world and they were able to capture all of their expenses and submit reports from anywhere as long as they had an internet connection. The product integrates very well with all of the major credit cards so no issue there. I don't think this product will integrate with your accounting package but I don't think you would expect that from a product of this nature or price range. Expensify is hosted on the cloud so no worries about installation and the implementation process went very smoothly for us. Their customer service wasn't spectacular but this product type and cost is such that someone in house should be able to manage everything and you wouldn't likely need to contact them for anything. The product is priced on a PUPM basis and the rate is very reasonable. I highly recommend this product to any company that doesn't already have an expense reporting feature as part of some larger ERM product. You will not be disappointed!!

Pros

Ease of use and implementation, low monthly cost which can be scaled as you add or remove users, completely paperless system and ability to take photos on your phone and upload them to the app, and ease of routing and tracking.

Cons

You will not get a lot of customer support and it doesn't integrate well into other applications. I don't think you would expect this of a product at this price though.

Expsensify for Easy Reimbursements!

09/01/2017

Expensify is a great tool to manage reimbursements. You can choose to reimburse directly from Expensify or manage through regular payroll. I wish there were more bulk edit options for moving things around, but overall it's really simple to use!
