Pros

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

Pros

We are keeping track of all corporate spend, and submitting them all on time now. The visibility of where all expenses are in their approval process has been great for our users.
The navigation is very user intuitive and there are apps to help simplify expense entry and receipt capture. It has very robust reporting capabilities and support documentation on their community.
Overall the experience has been great and we are happy with it.

Cons

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.

Cons

The errors that get thrown when a business condition is not met sometimes seem a little unpolished. For example, if it warns you to include a note, and you include a note, the warning doesn't go away.
Chrome River has a poor user interface, so is hard for new users to navigate and generally is clunky.
When we first went live with Chrome River then, we went live with the Mercury version and a lot of things were still on the Platinum version so a little inconvenient at the time.

Easy way for corporate expense tracking and reporting

Reviewed 2 years ago

Expense reporting is easy with Expensify. But it is just that - expense reporting.

Pros

An easy way for corporate expense tracking and reporting. UI is very simple and intuitive. You can do it on the go which is convenient. I really appreciate how smooth and easy it is to update, upload, claim your expenses. Especially comapred to some large systems like SAP.

Cons

Some features are still missing, the automatic sync between credit card and Expensify could work better. You still have to do a lot manually.

Ease of use for end users, but not much functionality, features, or reporting for admins

Reviewed 4 years ago

It allowed our company to switch from manual expense reporting to automated expense reporting. We are now switching to a better expense reporting tool.

Pros

Anyone that has a basic understanding of technology can just load the app and use it to submit reports.

Cons

While Expensify is super user friendly for end-users, the admin side of things is severally lacking. There are very few functions and configurations that can be made on the admin side. Also, the direct integration with QuickBooks Online is great and easy to use, but adding accounts in QuickBooks Online sometimes automatically adds accounts to certain expense policies in Expensify, but not all policies....

Easy expense reports!

Pros

I really like how easy it is to upload pictures of receipts and then Expensify handles the rest. It parses data from receipts very accurately and I usually don't have to make many corrections.

Cons

The only complaint I have is that if you accidentally create a report I haven't been able to figure out how to delete them so I sometimes end up with an empty report hanging around in my account.

Not perfect, but a much easier way to do expenses than Excel and printed receipts.

Time saved. Less time spent creating and submitting expense reports. Much easier to review other's expense reports.

Pros

Take photos of receipts and it automatically identifies the vendor, $ amount, and sometimes auto-categorizes. It pulls in bank and credit card feeds to generate expense reports with minimal manual work.

Cons

Sometimes the reports get auto-submitted before I'm ready to submit. It requires more backup than is often necessary.

Good Concept, Buggy Execution

Reviewed 5 years ago

Easy expense report submission.

Pros

I love the convenience of being able to submit work expenses for reimbursement in multiple categories and under different reimbursement schemes. The software facilitates automatic generation of reports and offers automatic submission as well, so I don't have to worry about categorizing or submitting my reports by month, pay period, etc. That can all be customized and automated. It also keeps track of the current reimbursement schemes offered by my company (i.e. current mileage reimbursement rates) so I don't have to manually keep track of that or enter it each time.

Cons

Because there are so many features to the software and customizable options, it loses a bit of the "user friendly" aspect. It also throws a lot of flags on certain expenses that I submit due to rules in the app that don't apply to that category of expenses (i.e. receipts are required for all expenses, but when I'm submitting a mileage expense, a receipt is not applicable). In order to take full...

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.

Good app to help simplify expense processing

Reviewed 6 years ago

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.

Company wide uniform Expense tracking. The benefit we realized is that with Expensify we can streamline generating and processing expense reports.

Pros

Expensify is a great tool for keeping track of business expenses, whether your dining out, traveling, or paying for a place to stay. Expensify has features that makes this process easy. Expensify streamlines data entry with smart capture capabilities. Customizable tags so users can categorize expenses in a way that makes sense to them. Also, can visually see the cost breakdown on your dashboard. ...

Cons

Usually, with a product with many features, the likely problem is usually that the UI is a little hard to use at first. There is a learning curve to the product. Sometimes I have issues with the smart scan but that could be caused by my cell phone camera.

Needlessly complicated

Reviewed 2 years ago

I guess it's better than doing expense reports in Excel or by hand, but it's such a complex piece of software that it seems more like a solution looking for a problem than a solution to a problem. Maybe it would add more value in a larger organization with lots of expense reports (I use it with a client that requires 1-2 expense reports per month).

Pros

The software allows for online creation and approval of expense reports and credit card expense tracking. Expensify is an improvement over doing these tasks manually.

Cons

The interface is needlessly complicated and it's difficult to learn how to use and troubleshoot problems. There's this AI "concierge" built in to Expensify that I have found more often annoying than helpful. The credit card feeds break down sometimes, either not capturing expenses or applying the wrong dates to expenses, which fouls up the feed between Expensify and the GL software. There is a feature called "copilot mode" that allows users to access each other's accounts, which I still find confusing. It looks like Expensify is trying to make this a nice-looking interface with a good user experience, but they're just kind of missing the mark in my opinion.

Submitting an expense is straight forward and the amount of things I have to think about are minimized by the platform taking care of actually submitting expense reports.[

There were a lot of unnecessary features (at least for our purpose) that in my opinion diluted the platform. One example is the "smart scan" that as far as I could tell has never actually worked.

Makes expense management a (somewhat) pleasant experience

Reviewed 4 years ago

Snappy performance and modern features for expense management.

Pros

For any software that requires tedious entry and categorization of items, the key is performance. Expensify meets the bill, both with the website and mobile application. Creating reports, adding expenses, navigation is all very fast. Expensify autosaves all report activity which is a lifesaver if you accidentally close the site or mobile app. Smartscan allows you to take a photo of the receipt and Expensify will scan the photo and auto-populate categories. This saves SO much time compared to having to scan receipts and upload them.

Cons

It would be nice to have more integrations with other travel systems, i.e. travel booking systems, ride share applications, hotel chains. The smartscan feature is hit or miss, sometimes it picks up all the information and other times nothing gets auto-filled. You also can't combine receipts in the same smartscan, i.e. two taxi receipts don't get totaled together. Smartscan also isn't great at understanding foreign currencies, this sometimes makes for amusing reports.

Expensify is what expense management should be - simple, fast, and effective at doing the job. It has tons of bells and whistles to improve the experience, including mobile support, automated scanning, and categorization. Adoption on the technology is also simple - chances is, it's much easier than whatever else you are currently using!

Cons

The only con comes in getting people to fully adopt the software, and that is due more to culture. Diligence in picking the right categories, submitting expenses on time, and submitting all expenses is just hard. Expensify does make the experience much easier with things like the mobile app and automatic scanning, but be prepared to reinforce your policies.

Emburse Chrome River Expense

The worst Expense management system I have used in along time

Reviewed 4 months ago

Overall very bad, I am surprise that this site has any good reviews, I work with over 5000 colleagues and everyone will tell a similar story, we are wasting hours on expenses compared to Expensify. I don't know if this is a cheap bit of software but think about the ROI and TCO for 5000 employees wasting and additional hour on expenses. THe main problem is the UI, and the mobile integration and the OCR. If you can't get those right you are wasting a lot of employee time. Avoid!

Pros

I literally don't like anything about this system, we used Expensify previously and it literally takes me 3 to 4 times longer to submit expenses, which means I am always behind.

Cons

The UI is very poorly designed, it needs binning and starting again with a decent UI design team, that actually watch users trying to interact with the system. The mobile App is terrible, it times out, and does not integrate seamlessly with SSO, the mobile receipt upload does not work, so you have to download a second app for receipt upload. One receipts are uploaded there are loads of OCR errors compared...
