Likelihood to Recommend

Abacus

If you are a cataloger or involved in direct mail in any way, Abacus provides a great opportunity to discover new prospects. However, if you are an online-only retailer, this may not be the fit for you.

It's perfect for my use case which is submitting expense reports to my manager. I can quickly submit all my receipts whether its an email, a photo, or a computer upload. I know once my expense report has been viewed, approved, and reimbursed. I have no complaints especially since the user interface is so straightforward and user-friendly.

Pros

Abacus

  • User-Friendly Interface: Reviews from our employees (ages ranging from 20s-70s) are all positive in regards to the ease of submitting an expense and getting reimbursement on Abacus
  • Timely Reimbursement: After final approval, money hits user accounts within 2 days
  • Approval routing: ability to set up multi-tier complex approval routes
  • Syncs with Sage Intacct: pushes entries on a day to day basis in to Intacct and it hits our GL accordingly
  • Abacus is competitively priced compared to the competition
  • Abacus utilizes "by expense" management. Getting rid of expense reports and batch reports (they do have an option where you can batch if need be)

Rydoo

  • The interface is very friendly and easy to use. Expenses can be dry and confusing, but Rydoo keeps everything simple, visually clean, and easy to navigate. The dashboard offers a great overview so you can easily see where all of your money is.
  • There are multiple ways to quickly add an expense via upload, webcam, or email. I prefer to add expenses manually, but when I've tried the other methods, they usually accurately fill out the expense fields based on the provided receipt.
  • Email correspondence is very good. I like automatically receiving "Reimburse report generated" emails that allow me to download my report and keep track of my expenses.

Cons

Abacus

  • Level of Detail: Data does not hit the end user in Sage Intacct ...it shows up as one accounts payable entry as "ABACUS." We would like it to hit the employee level for audit purposes
  • Customer Service does not allow phone calls. Only email
  • Corporate AMEX sync has experienced issues with syncing data properly and timely

  • This is minor, but I wish that when I clicked "Expenses," I could set the default to show "All" and not "To do." I like to quickly see the status of my submitted but not-yet-controlled expenses.
  • It would be great if I could crop, highlight, and otherwise edit receipts within Rydoo. For example, I get reimbursed for my phone bill, but I'm on a shared plan. When I upload my receipt it contains bills for the other members of my plan too. I always have to highlight the portion that belongs to me. I do this before uploading to Rydoo.
  • Sometimes the software runs slowly. Sometimes if a receipt is uploaded, it can take a long time for Rydoo to automatically parse the content and take you to the expense creation form. (Once it's populated, though, expense creation is very fast and easy.)

Alternatives Considered

Abacus

We originally migrated from SAP Concur. We made the decision to switch to Abacus because Concur does not sync directly with Sage Intacct and it was less expensive. Expensify seems to be what most companies recommend, however, it was out of our price range

I prefer Expensify over Rydoo. It is easier to work with both corporate cards and reimbursed expenses in Expensify, and it is much easier to reimburse the expenses directly through Expensify than having to work with a 3rd party outside of Rydoo. I have not used Expensify with multiple currencies, so I don't know how well it would handle that.

Return on Investment

Abacus

  • It does seem like they are still working out some kinks in the web and mobile apps – a few times the app has crashed. But they're also very fast to push updates.
  • The benefits are simple. No one likes taking time out of their day to do expense reporting. Abacus speeds that process up considerably. The interface is clean, and I'm able to see what expenses are pending vs. expenses that are already cleared.
  • The benefit from a user standpoint is that it adds an element of organization to a process that is typically disorganized. It has saved us numerous hours.

Rydoo

  • This is an unknown for me, since I work in the field a lot.
  • But I do know, however, that it allows employees to be better severed and taken care of faster on expenses they have when using their own accounts.
  • It can help keep people happy that work for a company since they aren't waiting for money owed as long.
