Pros

We our very happy with our decision to implement Zoho. The pricing model is great for a small business and the setup is quick and easy.
It is a nice app and have options to do more with this. I will suggest to work on feedback taken from users and implement the best possible option.
Zoho expense help us track our expenses and easy to use get it as report help. User friendly and price is I like most.

Pros

Again, speechless...cancelling once we clear all outstanding receipts in the system and moving to Zoho.
I really love how seamlessly the integration is with this software. It is excellent and keeps all receipts itemized.
A great tool that has brought relief to our Finance Department with our company. I appreciate the ability to watch the tracking of approval.

Cons

Sometimes it refuses to take the name of the merchant, rewriting it incorrectly. That can be a bit frustrating but its only happened once.
Support service is a problem. Timely response for the queries/issue is missing.
I hated having to take photos with my phone, then email them to myself, then download and upload. Using an app would have been less time consuming.

Cons

I don't like that it's a little difficult to correct mistakes.
Some of the labelling can be a bit confusing, for example, the decision to decide if I need to generate an expense or receipt can be a task.
A lot of back and forth that caused much inconvenience.

It's nice to finally have an affordable easy-to-use expense reporting service for our small business.

Pros

I think it's a great deal for expense reporting! The expense reports are easy to create, manage, approve, and archive!

Cons

Linking the cards to the accounts is a little bit annoying and the bank feeds break and take a while to reconnect. Other than that, it's great!

ZOHO Exp

Reviewed 4 years ago

It is a good tool to get us started doing expense reports electronically. Would need more features to be able to use it to electronically import it to our QB system.

Pros

Electronic features of expense reporting. Scanning of receipts and ability to append more than 1 receipt per expense. Approval levels

Cons

Exp reports can be changed after final approval by those with admin rights with out notice to all users. JPG images attaced to expense can not be expanded or rotated inside the software. Import from credit card most often picks up post date and not transaction date.

Zoho Expense

Great for documenting, tracking and approving employee corp card charges or reimbursable expenses

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Zoho Expense is easy to use. It allows receipts to be entered via drag and drop, via email, or by taking a photo in the mobile app. It has optical character recognition to complete expense information. There are both default and customizable fields that can be used for tracking/ coding expenses. User roles include both submitters and approvers and approvers can be assigned to specific submitters.

Cons

Would be helpful if some of the functionality available by splitting an expense were incorporated into the itemization feature. The itemization feature allows the expense to be coded to different categories of expense but not to a different project or client. To associate an expense to multiple clients or projects, it has to be "split" which really creates 2 separate expenses that are associated with each other. I would prefer the expense still be a single expense just itemized to different clients/ projects.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Easy, no-nonsense expense tracking.

Pros

I'm a recent convert to Zoho Expense from another expense tracking software. I love Zoho Expense because it's so straightforward. No fancy attempts to 'revolutionise expense tracking' like some competitors. You upload (or forward from email) your receipts, it extracts the key data and makes it easy to categorise expenses, and then you can submit a report. If you need more complex features those are available too, but I haven't needed them yet. The basic functionality alone is great!
