Pros

Great customer care and resolves any issues we experience in an expeditious manner.
I love how easy it is to use for both my users and my administrators. It's been very easy to manage each card separately without having to call in and wait on somdone to do it for me.
The overall PEX experience has been great. I would recommend this software to anyone needing a simple way to distribute money to employees who need to purchase items for the business.

Pros

I had many options to choose from Bento was the best one. Glad that I made the decision to look into it and it has been a great experience.
This has been a great option to allow some of our employees to have access to a credit card, but with control over the spending. It's easy to use, & a great value for the money.
If you are a small business owner who likes to follow the same philosophy of "less debt" in business as you do in your personal life, Bento is a fantastic tool to help you stick to a budget.

Cons

When there is fraudulent activity you don't receive the funds back until the case is investigated and decided in your favor.
The only CON is the delay in funding the account. You really have to plan ahead do account for the 4 day delay.
Pex took the risk out of our company spending and simplified our finance processes.

Cons

Our cards are used for gas and vehicle maintenance and are restricted as such. I get alerts when funds are running low as well as alerts when cards have been denied due to improper usage.
No international coverage or accounting integration.
I am solving the fact that i will not lise any money from fraud on my books and i can track spending account.
