Abacus

Abacus is great for smaller companies that need to automate expense management. It is a very user-friendly system that makes it easy for all employees to understand without any training. We have heard of issues with their AMEX program. Companies that have tens or hundreds of corporate AMEX cards should likely explore other options

If you have a remote workforce and want to save time and/ or inconvenience for employees by eliminating expense reports, this is a great product. You lose a little control over expenses but we just created a policy in our employee handbook to clarify the misuse of funds and set category restrictions on the card. If you have everyone relying on this, you can have one person make a large purchase that depletes all of the funds. A free transfer takes 2 days but an immediate transfer to correct no funds has a fee ($30 for my bank)

Alternatives Considered

Abacus

Abacus is a better payment reimbursement program than Expensify, which my company had previously used up until switching to Abacus around a year ago. Abacus has a better, sleeker, and more modern user interface. I can't comment on the price comparison of the two programs, but I can tell that our finance team prefers the new program as well for processing payments.

There are not a lot of other apps like this. Most of them just track expenses without giving employees the ability to use company funds. I understand that in larger companies this may not be an issue, but for our employees, it is nice to not have to use their own money. You can take pictures of receipts to prove what you bought, in-app, like a lot of other expense tracking apps
