Cheryl W.

Selected Tallie as our firm's T&E reporting tool of choice based on overall ease of use and value.

2017-11-07

Pros

Liked the automatic bundling of expenses into an open expense report for non-reimbursables (corporate credit card) vs. reimbursables.

Cons

Inability to process reimbursements within the Tallie app, have to integrate with a payment processing application or direct to accounting software for payment.

Useful for recordkeeping as well

2017-11-03

Pros

We've tried other expense reporting systems and what Tallie does that we've had difficulty finding elsewhere is its ability to be used to capture receipts.

Cons

Duplicates are pretty easy to find, so it's not too troublesome.

Awesome app for expense tracking

2018-03-01

We researched and tested a number of expense tracking apps before we started recommending Tallie to our Clients

Pros

Good integration with Bill.Com, QuickBooks etc

Cons

Cost is mitigated by time savings over more manual processes but is a barrier for some organizations. Integration with QuickBooks vendor list.

Travel for work is so much easier now

2020-02-06

We needed to get expenses submitted near time to the engagement to bill quickly.

Pros

And I can submit my expense reports near time instead of at the end of the peak travel season.

Cons

Forwarding a receipt from email to system sometimes ends up with an extra receipt of the basic email instead of just the pdf attached. Usually have to access the web version to correct that, but not always. So most can be done with the phone app.

Tallie for expense reporting

2018-01-11

Good, dependable tool, easy to learn.

Pros

It helps to be able to create a specific title so you don't confuse expense reports.

Cons

Doesn't default to last choice or frequent choice, so takes a little more work to select from options.

A Great Way to Submit Receipts!

2020-06-09

It has reduced the amount of time I spend on my expense reports each month.

Pros

From there, I can assign each to a line item, describe the expense, and then submit my expense report.

Cons

I find it difficult to use the mobile version just because it's harder to submit receipts via app due to the size of the screen.

The potential to be one of the best software solutions I've ever used or implemented

2020-06-15

When everything is working, the software is awesome and really supports a fast, electronic, seamless expense reporting process for Quickbooks.

Pros

When you combine Tallie, QB, and Bill.com, you can have a 100% paperless expense reimbursement process.

Cons

In talking to support many times, they are at the mercy of 3rd party solutions, but they also only display a few "default" CC sync options, and once you get them on the phone, they can open up multiple CC Sync options for you.

Tallie for Credit Cards

2020-11-24

We use it mostly for credit card tracking. It's easy to upload receipts and assign specific codes.

Pros

It's easy for employees to upload/enter expense report transactions/receipts.

Cons

Not always able to "add" a card that requires security code. Sometimes the "syncing" doesn't work making it difficult to complete certain tasks.

Slow Customer Support - Won't Fix Bugs

2020-05-06

Pros

Tallie is excellent at handling expense and credit card reports between end users, Quickbooks, and Bill.com.

Cons

I've pointed them out and gone through proper channels of reporting. They just don't seem to care.

Capable product, but demands a lot from the user

2020-10-08

Overall, exposure has been brief so far but Tallie will definitely get the job done.

Pros

We use this product specifically for expense reporting and Tallie can definitely pull that off with flying colors.

Cons

The platform and process aren't super user friendly. There is a lot left up to the user to interpret/understand in order to submit correctly.

BNI Tallie Review

2021-04-23

Now with Tallie we have freed up that person 100% and have drastically reduced the turn around time for reimbursing employees.

Pros

It eliminates paperwork from our employee reimbursement process and integrates with QBO, our ERP.

Cons

The reporting is a little limited, but not at all restricting.

Tallie

2019-02-08

Sometimes the system can be very slow to upload receipts.

Terrible software - ADMINs & Startups - avoid like the plague

2018-12-14

Expensify does not come with intuitive user groups, but at least Expensify actually WORKS as intended. Sync, export, etc. Save yourself major problems.

Pros

They used to have live chat until recently, when they went email-only. So I used to like livechat, but now that is gone, so… Oh wait now I know one - they do have some very nice enterprise features for user groups and permissions

Cons

now say hello to constant unexplained problems in export such as " Xero API call not recognized" or "There was a problem exporting your report.

Integration with Amex issues

2018-12-21

Pros

We used this as an expense management for 100 sales employees.

Cons

It took us 6 months to fixture out there was not enough detail exposed to tallie with respect to the card number (we were only showing last 4 and Amex needs the last 7 or 8 digits to prevent duplicate numbers being shown) tallie support was of no help to us and we ended up abandoning the software because our accounting team did not want to take ownership in getting this to work properly.

Grasping for that balance between easy-to-use and having lots of features

2018-02-06

Tallie is a pretty good piece of software. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone because of the learning curve for getting comfortable with the software, and I think there are some simpler out-of-the-box solutions out there, but Tallie really can do a lot, and we definitely have rolled it out to some of our clients with great success.

Pros

It's relatively flexible in terms of how it lets you set up your expense tracking.

Cons

It's also way more expensive than other expense management software, and cost-prohibitive to use with some of our smaller clients.

I prefer Nexonia but they're essentially the same

2017-10-30

I decided to go with Nexonia rather than Tallie so I just used the trial version.

I like having expense report portals that keep everything together.

Simplify the life of your finance team and your employees with an expense app!

2018-05-04

Pros

Coming from having previously used an excel file to file our expenses, this tool has drastically improved the expense experience of our employees.

Cons

The receipt import isn't always perfect in importing accurate information, but any incorrect information can easily be edited.

Easy to use as an employee

2018-07-05

Pros

Also, the mobile version (and the picture taking capability) is very convenient.

Cons

These could just be policy settings, but all of the time, I get notifications that say the expense reimbursement is "out of policy" but that is not really the case.
