Pros

Easy to useand very cost effective. Great for sales teams on the road as well we people in the office and the fact it can integrate easily into our Sage 200 finance system is great.

It was incredibly easy to implement and the support we received from the whole Web expenses team was excellent and led to this landing within our company very positively.

TH

The website continues to become more user friendly and their resources for troubleshooting are great.

MJ

Mollie-Jean D.

Pros

It's made each head of department responsible for their own invoices and the processing of them which is great.

YM

ME

Cons

Unable to label receipts before uploading, only 2 VAT codes, failed transfers can only be reloaded by support.

DT

Diane T.

For example attaching a receipt immediately closes that claim item , so if you need to amend other details, too bad you have to find it and reopen it, a few things like this were a bit weird.

PS

Patrick S.

Many give up and just do it on paper/excel and give it to an admin person to suffer through for them. I guess that says it all.

MB

Michael B.

Cons

Hard code description against suppliers when it is always the same description that needs to be entered.

ML

Melanie L.

Using Lightyear eliminates the overhead of a staff member and risk of manual data entry errors.
