Spendesk product overview

What is Spendesk?

We're on a mission to help businesses everywhere spend smarter. With flexible payments, approvals, automated receipt capture and real-time spend insights, finance teams can decentralize operational spending across the business without any loss of control or visibility. Employees benefit from streamlined expense and invoice management through the Spendesk website and app.

Key benefits of using Spendesk

- Visibility and control over operational spending: With Spendesk, operational spending is trackable and controlled. Team based spending policies, pre-approvals and real-time spending insights mean you're always on top of spend.

- Efficiency: With Spendesk, both finance teams and employees save hours each month on tedious, manual tasks like payment reconciliation and time-consuming expense reports. This gives them more time to focus on what's important.

- Autonomy: With Spendesk, employees are empowered to pay when they need to, within the limits and controls set by the finance team. No more blocked projects due to unclear spending policies or lack of access to funds.

Cons
It is not very obvious how to have a card that can be charged multiple times, but only as a single overall process.

Great efficiency tool for small companies

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

It greatly improves the purchasing workflow, all the way through to payments and accounting. It decentralises purchasing, while keeping control of the whole process with the decision makers. It's very intuitive to use - I never have to train new employees on Spendesk. The customer support level is the best I've ever seen, and they are constantly adding new features and improving the existing ones.

Cons

It costs money. But compared to the employee time saved by using it, as well as the added value compared to manual processes, it's money very well spent.

Vendor response

Thank you Mark for your kind review. We are really happy to free you and your team from the hassle of paying at work!

Spendesk, l'incontournable de la digitalisation des notes de frais !

Reviewed 9 months ago
Pros

J'apprécie la simplicité d'utilisation et le caractère intuitif de la solution. La soumission en quelques clics de factures est très souple, de même pour les notes de frais. La possibilité de créer des abonnements, de ne plus avancer de frais pour l'entreprise remplit complètement l'objectif premier de notre recours à Spendesk !

Cons

Les extractions des écritures comptables ne nous permettent pas encore une intégration automatique dans notre logiciel de comptabilité.

Vendor response

Improvements

Reviewed 3 years ago

Paying all over the US when travelling. Helps with keeping track of company expenses.

Pros

Easy to mangae/upload your receipts when you are travelling.

Cons

-Spendesk card doesn't work in many places (Trader Joe's for example) -With the app you can only take photos from receipts. It would be a great improvement if you could make a photo that recognizes the receipt (adapts the borders automatically) and that converts it to a pdf.

Vendor response

Dear Ferdinand, thank you for your review. The good news is our new mobile app will be launching soon, and includes a new feature to automatically crop receipt photos. Sorry to hear about the issues you had overseas, we've passed your comments on to our product team to investigate further.

Un très bon outils

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

- La facilité d'utilisation pour les employés c'est une plateforme intuitive. - Le service client, toujours à l'écoute et la résolution de problème. - les changements positifs en terme de développement

Cons

- certaines fonctionnalités ne sont pas très clairs comme les cartes d'abonnement aux verts alors qu'on vous indique qu'il n'y aura pas assez pour les couvrir. - les changements récurrent au niveau des dates prises en comptes (nous n'avons pas vraiment de points de repère visuellement entre la date de paiement et la date d'achat : notamment pour les NDF)
