Expense reporting made easy

2018-04-06

Easy and smooth process for expense reporting.

Pros

It will immediately detect a purchase and push a notification on your phone.

Cons

At first I had some trouble understanding which purchases needed an invoice uploaded because the icons used to indicate whether an invoice has been uploaded are not very intuitive.

A big leap forward in company expense management & control

2018-02-12

Reduced expense management time, reduced missing invoices & receipts and allow finite control of spending limits for each user and/or department.

Pros

Ease of use, individual card limit management, virtual cards for online subscriptions help to reduce fraud risk, easy upload of invoices.

Cons

Simple UK VAT logging option would earn a 5 star rating for 'Features & Functionality', and an option to have a virtual card only at a reduced fee would be useful for us. Wallet uploads need to be within 2 hours, 24/7, 365

So easy

2018-03-28

Saved me a tonne of time and more importantly - headspace - I no longer have to think about expenses.

Pros

Expense reports used the be the worst part of my job.

Cons

Still, have to pay invoices through an integration but I think they're building functionality that will allow it soon.

Modern, simple process to managing payment carfs

2018-04-28

Life Changing and Easy To Manage

Better expense management across the team.

Pros

Without the export feature into Xero it wouldn't have had the same impact.

Swift Smart App! Easy to use

2019-04-23

Very user friendly and widely accepted payment option with merchants.

Pros

The minute you spend a notification comes through to alert you, this helps give you a nudge to upload a receipt straight away, and also alerts for when balance becomes low.

Cons

Visibility of which card has been used, whether a user has used a virtual card or a plastic one.

Great company expense tracking and card provider

2019-12-04

This no-brainer, time-wasting work has been disrupted by Pleo that with a smart company card and superb mobile apps does all of this automatically like magic.

Pros

Automatically does accounting aspect since invoices are tied to spendings.

Cons

As a user of the tool (primarily their mobile app) I find it really easy to attach invoices to my spendings.

Great App

2019-02-27

Pros

Pleo saves a lot of time for our consultants every month, when we do expense reporting.

Cons

Would be great if more retailers have direct access to the solution, so the invoice/receipt goes directly into the app.

The easy way to account your business expenses

2018-11-21

Now I can directly see who has expensed what, and make sure the all invoices are in the system.

Pros

(Almost) automatic bookkeeping with Storebox and e-conomic integration.

Cons

Not really anything. Sounds wierd, but can't really think of anything.

Amazingly easy to use...saves so much time!

2017-08-03

Pros

Everything; the Mastercard itself, the UI/UX in both the mobile app and on desktop just feels so right!

Cons

It's hard to say when you're using a product that's so helpful in your everyday worklife, but hopefully the Pleo team will continue to make the expense reporting for online software purchases even more smooth in the future.

Amazing fintech solution for all companies

2019-01-07

Pros

For the management it saves so much time on administrative paperwork and control, since you have full overview and control on spending in the PLEO solution.

It would be nice with more open API´s to integrate with the rest of our business software.

Pleo is a time-saver!

2018-01-18

Pleo company cards for key employees: With Pleo, our employees no longer have to make out of pocket purchases as they are trusted with their own Pleo card. Real-time data and spending limits make it easy to monitor expenses.

Pros

Pleo also gives you increased control of the company credit cards and real-time expense insights, which makes you able to do better decisions

Cons

Sometimes our employees get their cards disabled for wrong issues, but it is quick and easy to enable them again.

Very rare do you find a product that has this smooth user experience online and in real life

2018-03-23

Much Quicker Expense management for user and accountant

Pros

Very easy to use. Very smooth online platform.

Cons

Once in a while (very rare) does the card not seem to work with some retailers, but I think that has to do with it being a Mastercard Debit.

Pros

We can easily keep track of all our expenses which is very helpful for our management team.

Adding money to the Pleo card is still a manual process that goes through our online bank.

Simon Bach Bjerring

Really great service, easy to implement, and saves us for so much work.

2018-01-03

Saved us a ton of time and work, and let us give our employees a payment card if they need it

Pros

Every purchase can be sorted into customised cost accounts Our employees are prompted to take pictures of the receipts at all purchases, which makes it easy for us, and is not a hassle for them Easy management of users and spending limits Customer service is top tier, and easy to reach Easy top-up of account, automatically (at least if you have a bank in Denmark)

Cons

Lacks a good enough service for subscriptions, so we still use another card for that Some bugs in app and on website, but never anything gamebreaking

Perfect tool

2019-02-05

I like spending time on things that develop​ and grow our business rather than filling out expense forms.

Pros

The integration to accounting platforms like e-conomic works very well and it saves time and money on your book keeping.

Cons

The export functions could be more elaborate but that would just be icing on the cake.

Brilliant product

2019-08-14

Being able to keep a track of my spending on the go is brilliant, as well as having my spending limit adjusted for specific events and times of the year is a really useful feature

Pros

Pleo has saved me literally hours every month by being able to keep my accounts team up to date on my spending in real time instead of as a once monthly exercise.

Cons

My card was hacked once but I received an immediate payment alert, blocked the payment, cancelled the card and received a replacement quickly.

Makes expenses easy

2019-02-27

In addition to it's simplicity it allows us to keep a real time track on where we are spending money.

Pros

Gives managers real time view of what is being spent and where so to keep on top of expenses.

Cons

Adding multi-currency without transaction fees would also be very desirable.

Saves you tons of time and let you focus on what really matters - amazing software!

2017-09-25

Pros

As a head of accounting I personally like the instant overview of the expenses Pleo gives you and the easy userface, which makes it possible for every employee to use Pleo from day one.

Cons

That means that when you do exporting of your data + pictures of receipts from Pleo to the accounting system, the account system (as it is right now) will not understand the project numbers exported from Pleo and the accounting system will therefore not automatically create these project numbers or register them as project numbers in the accounting system at all.

Response from Pleo


Hey Christian,

thanks for the review! We are right now working on better integration of projects into the accounting systems (e-conomic, Xero). Coming in the next few months - so should be much easier to deal with a bigger amount of projects.
